Waistbeads are a form of beaded jewelry worn around the waist that have a long history in African cultures. Waistbeads were made popular by the Yoruban Tribe in Nigeria. Women wore waistbeads as a celebration of womanhood, sexuality, femininity, fertility, healing, spirituality, body shaping, protection and wealth. 

Now, women of all shapes and sizes are confidently adorning themselves with waistbeads. Strands can be specific colors and may also include decorative stones, crystals, or charms, assisting you in setting specific intentions for the time to come. 

Wearing waistbeads can also be a gauge for weight change. Instead of stepping on the scale, you can see where you've lost or gained weight in the abdomen area based on where your waistbeads are currently resting. 



We encourage you to choose your next set of waist beads by picking what speaks to you! We have a huge array of colors and styles to choose from. If you need help choosing colors and/or crystals for your strands, we offer consultations to assist you.
