The Story Behind Body Beads
This is an ancient tradition originating in Africa, made popular by the Yoruba tribe of Nigeria. These beads have been noted to have been worn as early as the 15th century for many purposes such as rites of passage during puberty, baby naming ceremony, maintaining the figure, and intimacy with a husband or lover, femininity, healing, protection and as a status symbol. Waist beads can be traced back to ancient Egyptian times and were then known as “girdle.” Made with single or multiple strands of beads made from various kinds of glass/seeds, metal, crystal, bone or wooden beads.
