'Let's Get Waisted'
Waist Beads are worn as a celebration of womanhood, status, sexuality, femininity, fertility, healing, spirituality, protection, wealth and also used for body shaping. Some may ask how are waist beads used as a body shaper? Beads are great indicators in weight gain. They will fall lower on your waist if you lose weight, and become tighter or higher on your waist if you gain weight.
In this workshop, you will learn the tradition and art of waist beads and you'll also be instructed on how to make your own by artisan, Tima Samad.
