I am so excited about this, you guys!
Ok, to start off, I would like to share that today is my two year anniversary with my husband, Ethan.
It is in honor of this occasion that I have named my newest bracelet the Two Years Cuff. It is also a fitting name because, boy, this bracelet takes about two years to make. It is not for those seeking a quick project. That being said, I am super proud of this elaborate, time-consuming piece.
Behold! This is my Two Years Cuff! It takes seed beads in a few sizes, Czech crystals, Czechmate Tiles, and the new Kheops par Puca beads! There are endless color combinations with the Pucas and Tile beads – which is why I made so many samples, haha.
This cuff can go fancy with metallics, like my first one in white and silver or this summery copper piece.
Or you can make it more casual with matte beads, like my navy and lilac bracelet. Or by using more diluted palettes, like this matte gold and Atlantis blue cuff.
Now, Kheops Puca beads are fairly new, so they aren’t available from many retailers yet. The online bead store where I work, Beads Direct USA has a great selection of Kheops, as well as a huge variety of Czechmate Tiles to pair them with. I am excited to see the Kheops becoming more popular!
I haven’t decided which new bead shapes I am going to try to design with next. I have some O-beads and Dragon Scales set aside, but haven’t gotten any inspiration yet. What about you guys? Do you have any favorite new shapes you can’t find nice patterns for? Let me know in the comments!
In the mean time, Happy Beading!
