Traditionally worn by African women throughout the continent and diaspora, waist beads are a symbol of femininity, beauty, sensuality, and sexuality.

As adornment or fashion meant to be seen, waist beads make a unique statement. Far less tawdry than belly chains, beads are subtle and interesting.

Worn privately under clothing, beads become something more. A personal reminder of femininity, like fine lingerie; a delicate indicator of weight gain or loss; or a talisman created with powerful colors and semi-precious stones to enhance or heal.
