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.
Flamingos the most famous pink bird are monogamous in nature. They lay one egg a year and it takes them 3 years to gain their pink feathers. They are very social and live in colonies of thousands 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.
