African Waist Beads - Alasa
Adorn your body with our artisan handcrafted glass waist beads. Alasa is a bold vibrant orange.
Traditional waist beads are African adornments that consist of small glass beads on a string worn around the waist or hips. They come in different colors, shapes, and sizes and can sometimes have added gems, crystals, stones, or charms. Traditionally African waist beads represent femininity, fertility, a rite of passage, sensuality, seduction, healing, protection, cultural pride, and well-being.
Wear your waist beads confidently! And may your waist beads be a constant reminder that your body is a beautiful, sacred temple and that there's power in the divine feminine.
