Description

::|| PURE WHITE ||::


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

|| Listing is for ONE 42-inch strand of 1-1.5 millimeter waist beads ||

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

|| Looks great with: GOLD; WHITE CRYSTAL; BLACK


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.
