Pretty Green Women's traditional tie on waist beads. Hand made in Ghana. Green with yellow accents.

Waist Beads are traditionally an African tradition of women or girls wearing small beads (seed beads) around their waist. They are commonly worn by people in certain parts of Africa, such as Ghana. Some women wear them from childhood to adulthood.

Waist beads are often used by adult women to manage their weight, the beads can be tied on permanently, therefore indicating when weight is being gained or lost.  

Waist beads also represent femininity, many women wear them for their beauty and their sensuality. 

The thinner waist beads can be worn at the hip line under your clothes. Larger waist beads can be worn at the waist and displayed when you wear crop tops or a bathing suit. 

These waist beads are authentic and handmade in Ghana.
