Waist beads have been worn by women in Africa for centuries. Waist beads are worn for different reasons: for weight loss, fashion, spiritual reasons, self confidence, fertility, intimacy, etc
These waist beads are beautifully made with cotton string and 6mm and 4mm round seed beads as well as 3mm seed beads. They are tie-on waist beads that are adjustable at the length of 45 inches. These beautiful waist beads last a lifetime and can only be taken off if cut by scissors.
Named after the Owner herself, Mariama is the Arabic name for Mary. Mary was the mother of Jesus.
