The amazing Les perles par Puca glass shapes are made in the Czech Republic. Each shape features a different amount or a unique variation of threading holes, designed so that they all slot together seamlessly. The unique shaped beads were created by a French designer called Puca who found it difficult to find the specific beads she wanted for her creations. The first Par Puca Beads to be created were the two hole Kheops, which were then followed by the three hole Arcos and the one hole Minos beads. These brilliant little beads come in a great range of shiny, matte and some transparent tones making them perfect for combining with matching seed beads and twin hole beads.
