Description

::|| ROYALS II :: PURPLE & GOLD ||::


|| Made in Ghana in the traditional Ghanaian fashion. ||

|| Listing is for ONE 45-inch strand of 3-4 millimeter waist beads ||

|| Contact us for longer strands, custom colors, or larger orders. ||

|| Looks great with GOLD: https://www.etsy.com/listing/475365621/african-waist-beads-gold-45?ga_search_query=GOLD&ref=shop_items_search_3

HOW TO WEAR:

Find the perfect fit for your body; while many like the beads to drape the midsection delicately, the hips and buttocks should keep your waist beads from slipping. Once the right position is found, remove excess beads, tie, and clip any extra string. Voila! Many women wear 3+ bead, which makes mixing colors and patterns even more fun.


MORE ABOUT WAIST BEADS:

The wearing of waist beads is an old African tradition as well as a modern practice.

Worn around or below the bikini line, they discreetly adorn a woman’s midsection. The strands enhance a positive body consciousness; their location on the body … imparting and inspiring inherent sensuality.

When one gains weight, the beads tighten and rise. When weight is lost, they loosen and fall. This creates an awareness of one’s health and encourages weight maintenance.

Traditionally, they are worn at different stages of a woman’s life and sometimes indicate their lineage, tribe, and/or clan. In more contemporary times it’s also said that the pattern, style, type, and colors of a woman’s beads are only known to her and her lover, creating a lovely secret between them.


NOTE:

These are all handmade items so there are variations in color, shape, and size. It is normal to find irregular sized beads and for the pattern to vary slightly. Our beads are sturdy, however they are made of glass and earthen clay, so please handle them with care.

    I really wanted to like these beads absolutely beautiful. My experience not the best. I will say customer service wise she tried. I paid for my order waited a month and received nothing, contacted the shop Friday they forgot about my order. She shipped it out and I received it Monday today. I was supposed to receive another set of beads today for another set I received from her that the color rubbed off in 2 days. Today the purple and gold ones while absolutely beautiful, there not a good set of beads. They felt sticky and the string was purple, but I gave them the benefit of the doubt. Put them on 20 mins later my skin itching like crazy, I lift my shirt to find purple dye where the beads were sitting all across my stomach. Some of throthers I have bought from her have rubbed off or flaked off. I this was such a disappointment
