Crystal Waist Beads

I love this design of waist beads! If you’re into using crystals to manifest, or if you enjoy using crystals for holistic healing purposes, you might also love these crystal waist beads. Wearing one or multiple kinds of crystals with your waist beads is not only cute, but it can be a fantastic way to try out this trend.

Multicolor Tie-On Waist Beads

Unlike a lot western jewelry, traditional African waist beads are often permanently tied onto someone’s body. Many people use the tie on waist beads to encourage losing weight, watching the bead fall and loosen as your fitness journey continues can be satisfying for many. However, they don’t have a size range. They can be made into any size, and the permanent option is an awesome way to add to your style, celebrate culture or embrace femininity.

Pendant Waist Beads
