Waistbeads are handcrafted beaded adorments, which have been worn for generations by Ghanaians to accentuate and mold a woman’s physique. Besides molding a woman’s physique they are also used to monitor weight. Waistbeads are worn beautifully by women of all shapes, sizes, and ages. This is an ancient tradition originating in Africa, worn for many reasons like expression of femininity, healing, protection, rights of passage during puberty, baby naming ceremony, maintaining the figure and intimacy with a husband or lover. You will feel ultra feminine wearing your waistbeads with your bathing suit, crop top or under clothing. Our Waist Beads are made from various kinds of glass, metal, crystal, worn around the waist and stomach.
