Arcos Beads

These are my patterns and projects that use Arcos beads. Don’t forget to check the beading supplies as well. Why not put together your own little project kit?

What Are Arcos Beads?

If you have never come across Arcos beads before, they are a type of shaped seed bead. As you might guess, they look like an arc. Each bead has three holes through it: one through each tip and one through the centre. So, place the bead so that the arc sits vertically, and the holes go through in horizontal alignment. The beads are manufactured in the Czech Republic, but designed and supplied by Par Puca. If that brand name sounds familiar, then you may have used some of their other beads, like the Kheops.

I am giving you some patterns here to get you started. Or, maybe you prefer to buy the beads from me and create your own designs.

Please remember to check back here regularly. Then you won’t miss any new designs. If you would like more information about the beads and techniques, then visit That website has blogs covering everything you need to know. Finally, if you have any questions about any products, please just drop me an email. I’m always happy to help!
