Kheops, Arcos, Minos and Ios par Puca beads
Kheops, Arcos, Minos and Ios par Puca beads were all developed by the French jewellery designer, Annick Puca, and are therefore known as Les Perles (beads) par Puca. They are designed to work together as well as individually and can therefore be used in many combinations.
