Kheops Bracelet

Hi everyone! Today I'm very happy to share with you a new tutorial that I created using the kheops par puca beads. I bought two tubes of these beads a month ago because I was very curious about them. At the beginning I had some difficult to use them because they're very different. But once I got used, all I could think was: "I need more of these beads!". LOL

I came up with two different designs using these beads. This is the first that I created - it's simple and suitable for beginners. If you never worked with the kheops beads before, I think this tutorial will help you to get used to them.

In my opinion, the only downside about these beads is that they're a bit expensive. A 9 grams package (with approximately 70 beads) is around $4.60 to $6.60. The price varies according to the bead's color. And like the superduo beads, you can find some kheop beads with one of the holes clogged. So if you're going to work in a pattern that calls for 9 grams (70 beads) of kheops beads, I recommend you buy two packs because some of the beads may be defective.
