Why hand crafted body beads?


Waist beads are a traditional African accessory that consist of small glass beads on a string or wire worn around the waist or hips. They come in different colors and shapes and may also include decorative stones, crystals, or charms.

Many women around the world use waist beads in intimate settings to enhance their sensuality, also to be closely associated with fertility. Some women wear specific beads during sex when they’re trying to conceive. This practice of waist beads began in Africa centuries ago. In West Africa, beads have several names such as Jel-Jelli, Jigeda, Giri-Giri, Dialey, or Yomba. Body beads have been known to be worn for rites of passage, healing, and even for enticing your significant other. The beads also serve as a way to determine weight loss and body shaping, wearing strings of waist beads forces the wearer to be aware of their size. If you gain two pounds, the beads will be the first to tell you. The string or wire would not allow for stretching like clothes do, so they would roll up the waist until they found a place to sit comfortably or simply break. The higher up the beads laid on the body equal weight gain and lower they laid on the body meant weight loss, this was a simple method of monitoring weight without the scales. In ancient Egypt waist beads were called “girdles”, In Ghana and other parts of West Africa, women wear waist beads with bells on them and dipped them in sweet smelling oils to sexually stimulate their partner. So much rich history behind the origin of the body beads something that was once an sacred intimate practiced between lovers is now trendy.

Just a little history that I have uncovered in my studies, and as I was diving in deeper the universe place a lady in my life, she was making waist beads and suggest that I come over and she would teach me how to string them. That is how thing work!!! My purpose part of my passion is to give this back to the divine women hood so we can heal collectively bringing something back to us that was once sacred, something that we should hold dear to us not to be shared with every person as an fashion statement.

To each her own.
