My partner and I work these crafts at both Peru and the US. I moved to North Carolina in 2017 and have just got around bringing a presence in the US. Our current fashion line places the Soutache earing at the forefront of our designs.

These Soutache are inspired in the multicolored birds of our Amazon. The braid interweaves as to convey flight and pops the sparkle coming from the beads placed along the feathers. Along with earrings, we also make necklaces using painted shells and cord.

These are intricate in that their color and shape gives the flower a multi-dimensional facet that both attracts and highlight the beauty if the wearer. At Festival in the Park, you will find these and other creations that we are sure you will love.
