African Waist beads are a symbol of femininity, fertility, sensuality, and spiritual well-being. Our Authentic Waist beads are handmade using glass beads by a group of Maasai women in Kenya.
Many cultures give them to young girls as initiation gifts as they transition from puberty to woman hood. They are also given as wedding gifts to embrace their sexuality on the first night after their wedding ceremony. Waist beads are also used to curb weight gain and maintain shapely waistlines.
Cranes are social birds that live in large groups but are monogamous and a pair mates for life. Some species migrate seasonally and can travel up to 10,000 miles. Some are able to reach 32,000 feet while flying which is a record in the world of birds.
Please measure your waist carefully before placing an order. If you are in between sizes, order the next size up for a more comfortable fit. Returns are not accepted due to human error.
