Free Pattern with Kheops par Puca Beads

I have gratefully received some generous quantity of Kheops® beads from Puca of Les Perles de Puca. Thanks so much, Puca!

I am fascinated by the creativity these ingeniously designed, two-hole triangular beads had burst. I have seen many wonderful designs Puca and other designers came up with using this bead, and there are still so many potential designs hidden in it! Can't wait to try some new designs with them.

The Desert Sun beaded component is made with Kheops beads, Japanese seed beads and Swarovski crystal Rivoli stone, and it can be used as a pendant, as a ring and even as earrings. 

I'd like to "pass forward" Puca's generosity, by sharing this project I designed with her beads for free. * Hope you enjoy making it! 

* Please do not post the pages of this free tutorial on other sites - if you want to share it, please share the link to this blog.

** If you want to teach this free beading project in your classes, please pass it forward to your students and teach it for free, too!

Happy Beading!
