You can buy a range of Kheops Par Puca beads in 10g packs. Each pack contains about 72 beads. Please select your colour using the drop-down menu above. You can view the colours I have available, in the gallery images.
We have all come across that same problem. You see a bead colour on your screen and think it looks great. So, you order the beads. Then, your pack arrives and the colour is totally different from what you were expecting. You even wonder if the shop just packed the wrong beads by accident…!
The fact is, between camera settings, lighting and different computer screens, it is very hard to convey the true colour of beads in an online setting. So, if you are trying to colour match and you’re not sure what will work, you can order a sample.
I will send you 1 Kheops (enough to check the colour). Your sample also includes a discount code. So, if you come back here and buy some beads from me, use the discount code, then the cost of your free sample, plus £1 (towards postage) will be refunded against your order.
Terms and Conditions
You can redeem your coupon against any beads, so it does not have to be the same as your sample. For example, if you ordered a sample of pearls, but decided they weren’t right. You could still come back and redeem your sample coupon as you buy some seed beads.
The coupon has no expiry date, but you can only use it once. If you have multiple coupons, you can use them all, but you must add each coupon code separately in your basket.
Coupons cannot be used to get a refund against a pattern or kit.
About Kheops Par Puca Beads
If you have never used Kheops beads before, they are made in the Czech Republic. However, the Par Puca company in France developed these beads. They measure 6x6x3mm and are triangular in shape. Kheops Par Puca beads are two-holed seed beads. The holes run from bottom to top in parallel through the triangles. This means you end up with one side that has two holes and two sides that each have one hole.
If you want to find out more about Kheops beads and how to use them, then this blog is a great place to start.
Patterns using Kheops
I started using these beads a few years ago, so I have now developed a good range of patterns. You can find something to suit all levels. So, I want to offer just a few suggestions here.
If you are completely new to Kheops, then this bracelet is a really good place to start. You simply need a pack of Kheops and some seed beads. The thread path is simple, so it’s a good way of getting used to how the two-hole system works.
If you want a project that mixes Kheops with other beads, then try this necklace. It adds the Kheops in a different arrangement and mixes them with seed beads, superduos and pearls. I also have a ring variation to match.
Anyone who enjoys geometric beadwork will like these Kheops earrings. You can also turn this design into a motif to use in a necklace or bracelet.
Colours and Stock
Just one final piece of admin to deal with before you go! I have very limited colours at the moment, but I will be adding more. So, if there is a colour you particularly want, then please email me and let me know.
You will also see, you can place back orders. So, if a colour is out of stock, I will get it for you as soon as possible. If you have a time limit on this, please also contact me to find out how long the back order will take. I will do all I can to help make sure you have what you need when you need it!
