New Puca beads


If you love the Arcos and Minos par Puca beads, try the new Ios par Puca beads. The Ios is a two-hole rectangular bead with rounded ends, measuring 2.5 x 5 mm. It fits together perfectly with the Arcos par Puca (the 5 x 10 mm arch-shaped bead, above left) and Minos par Puca (the 2.5 x 3 mm cylindrical bead, top) and is available in many of the same colors as these other Puca brand beads.


I played around with them a bit to see how they work with the Arcos and Minos. As you can see at the top of my sample, one Ios is about the exact same height as two Minos stacked together. At the bottom, I nestled an Ios vertically between two Arcos. Note, however, that the holes go through the Ios the short way (horizontally in this photo), so the Ios is connected to the Minos, not the Arcos.

These are just a couple of ways you can work with these fun new beads – the combinations are endless! Look for them at your favorite bead store and visit the Puca brand blog at to find inspirational ways to use these beads. The blog is in French, but you can still admire the beautiful designs even if you aren't a Francophone.
