 ABOUT

These waist chains are inspired by traditional African waist beads
and named after the Yoruban goddess Oshun (pronounced Oh•shoon). Oshun is associated with fertility, love, and sensuality. Her colours are hues of gold and yellow and one of her offerings is honey. In images, Oshun is always depicted as being dressed in gold, covered in jewels and holding a pot of honey.

Waist chains are a body positive adornment and are for everyBODY. Traditionally, women of all shapes and sizes confidently adorn themselves with waist beads. Wearing waist chains is a reflection and appreciation for your natural body and beauty. Waist beads have been worn for centuries by women in many West and East African cultures and are made with tiny colourful beads and charms. In Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, and other West African countries, waist beads are a symbol of femininity, fertility, sensuality, and spiritual well-being.

Today women all over the world wear waist chains for aesthetic and practical purposes.
