At KRWND we always say "if it's not dripping like honey, you aren't wearing enough gold."

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.

Available in 4 different options:

•Waist chains are available in 4 different chain options: A,B,C,D.
•Chains options can be mixed and matched. Include the letters of the chain styles you want in the 'notes' section at checkout.
•Waist chains are custom made to fit your body. Your waist chain measurement should be your waist measurement + 1in. For example, if your waist is 30 inches, your waist chain measurement would be 31 inches. Include your waist chain measurement in the 'notes' section at checkout.

•Waist chains are made adjustable with a 5 inch chain extender and can only be adjusted to fit looser/bigger, not smaller/tighter. If you want to be able to make your waist chain smaller/tighter, provide a smaller measurement.

•Consider where you want your chain to sit based on comfort and functionality. Waist chains can be worn anywhere between your waist and lower hip. A good rule of thumb for fit is there should be a 2 finger width of space between the chain and your skin.

•Be sure to measure against bare skin. Watch this video for extra help on measuring.



•For everyday wear 1-2 strands is best, for aesthetic purposes/as an outfit accessory 3-4 strands is best.

•Be sure to loosen the chain during strenuous activity or eating to prevent the chain from popping.

•Our waist chains are shower safe but avoid wearing them in chlorine or sea water. After showering, make sure there is no soapy residue left on the chain. While the chains won't rust/tarnish, in order to keep the gold from fading , you must thoroughly dry the chain with a cloth or towel after it gets wet. Do not let the water stay sitting on the chain or allow it to 'air dry'--pat until completely dry.

•These waist chains are gold plated stainless steel. Stainless steel is known for being safe for most people with skin sensitivities. Stainless steel is also eco friendly, anti-tarnish, rust proof and water resistant. This means the item can get wet here and there and will never rust/tarnish. While your item will never rust/tarnish, over time and with wear, the plating can lose it's luster.
