Cuisenaire Rods Necklace by Mainichi


A necklace created from recycled, vintage wooden cuisenaire counting rods, drilled and combined with other vintage wooden beads, strung onto a strand of genuine leather.

Cuisenaire rods were used in many Australian primary schools as mathematical teaching aid.  Originally conceived in the 1920's by a Belgian school teacher, Georges Cuisenaire (1891-1975), and popularised again in the 1950's.


Size: adjustable to 45cm from back of neck, group of beads vary from 16cm - 22cm wide and 5cm - 8cm long
