Officially, a 14-sided object is called tetradecagon – and these attractive hand-painted porcelain beads – complete with Chinese script decorations – fit the bill.
One could have a lot of fun with them because they’re quite different to their other bead counterparts.
These beads would make the perfect ingredients for creativity - particularly for those artisans with a bent for creating amazing, quirky or standout jewellery.
You may not end up being the belle of the ball with a necklace made with these tetradecagon’s – but you’ll be sure to prompt a lot of head turning.
Together with spacer beads from your own bead collection, these kinky beads work well as a necklace or a chunky bracelet.
If jewellery is not your thing, these beads make an excellent choice as a component in a counting abacus.
The beads work out, they average out at $2.00 each, come with a 3mm threading hole and weigh in at approximately 138 grams.
