Joanna Potepa


As I work my inspiration is nature and travelling. I create soutache world i have seen walking in the wood, on the fields, in gardens ,  I start working and suddenly in my hands appears something, something more than the gems and braid, something special – making the patience and work worthwhile.   In my imagination I see a woman wearing my jewellery or decorating her house, she looks and smiles.

I want my works to reflect the individuality and femininity of the women who use it.  Perfect to complete a formal dress  or to celebrate special occasion , I would like my customers to use Soutache works in their daily lives, enhancing a simple outfit into something that makes them feel special.


"The most wasted day in your life is this one without smiling''
Sometimes is hard to do that, but ... we have friends, family and ... jewellery.
