Little Box for You
This little box for a small treasure features the Arcos and Samos par Pucas. The milky Arcos work beautifully with the new cracked Samos colours. The Sam base is available in Les Perles par Puca section of our website.
This intricate little box requires some extra components. You will need the Sam wooden base which measures 21 x 30mm. You will also need a 30mm metal circle.
The full step-by-step details are available on our website but here are the key stages in constructing this intricate little box.
Paint your base or support if you wish. Then string and glue a circle of the Samos par Pucas into position.
The lid is then made by attaching a circle of the Arcos par Pucas to the inside of the metal ring and then building a dome using the Samos and Kalos beads. This is topped with an 8mm round pearl. If you wish you can edge the metal circle with delicas for a lovely finish.
The base is created by threading layers of Arcos, Samos and then Kalos beads and then using seed beads to cover the tapering base. Finally glue on a 25mm Cabochon par Puca to make a steady base.
