Kate Mcguire is a self taught soutache artist and bead embroidery artist.

Soutache is the technique of wrapping a “soutache” cord around a bead or beads to create wearable jewelry.

The ability to make unique jewelry from both soutache and bead embroidery is limitless as well as a very time consuming technique.
