Wrap and Soul Waistbeads Studio

My name is Moon.

I have been making and selling waist beads for 12 years and I never grow tired of it. I take great joy in harnessing the power of crystal gemstones and combining them with sacred symbols make my waist beads potent and unique.

I was introduced to waist beads at the same time I became fascinated by gemstones. I made my first waistbeads in class taught by Queen Afua, renowned healer and Sacred Woman from Brooklyn, New York.

In her book, "Sacred Woman," Queen Afua writes that in some nations waistbeads were given to young girls at puberty by their older kinswomen as a symbol of feminity and power.

In many countries, the color of the beads or the pattern of beadwork may signify a woman’s status as a maiden, mother, widow or elder. Her waistbeads are always on her, protecting her during menstruation, courtship, marriage and childbirth.

I believe my designs take that one step further, matching the energy of symbols with gemstones and creating a piece of cultural art that is as intimate and sensual as a woman's lingerie.

Waistbeads are not about whether or not you have a flat stomach or six-pack abs. They are not about highlighting the thickness of your waist or the bulge of your belly or span of your hips.

Waist beads have a completely different energy. They tell the story of your womb. They remind you that the curve of your hips and belly are what makes you a woman.

They symbolize the beauty of women who soar.

I am fascinated by color and textures of beads and stones, the more raw and imperfect the better. In addition to the New York and Atlanta bead shops that I scour for my waistbeads, the recycled materials for my bracelets and necklaces are just as likely to come from an antique shop, a Caribbean beach or a flea market.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I love collaborating with waistbeadswomen to create their adornments! Simply review past orders to see the symbols, colors and gemstones I commonly use, then convo or email me with your design ideas. I'm open to all concepts and will do my best to accommodate them.

Sizing details

Most of the listings will have a drop-down menu that allows you to check off your exact measurements. Note that you will also have to option of adding a free adjustable six-inch chain with a charm dangle at the end. For further information on how to measure your hips and waist, see the "announcement" section on this site.

Care instructions

Wrap and Soul waistbeads can be worn all the time, day and night, as long as you are not allergic to gemstones, or base metal, plated silver/gold, copper, brass or pewter as these are metals that are frequently used.

Unless your skin is extremely sensitive, you can even shower, bathe and swim with your beads on. Be aware that over time chlorine, soap, skin oils, lotions, etc, can sometimes coat, dull or discolor the beads. The chains are plated silver or gold, so water may tarnish or fade them over time.

Some waistbeadswomen believe that “clearing” gemstones before wearing them removes any residual negative energy from previous handlers. To “clear” gemstone waist beads, leave outside in direct sunlight or moonlight for 24 hours.
