Waist beads have a long symbolic history and tradition in West Africa; women wore then to symbolize maturity, fertility, and heritage as well as practical reminders of one's weight and posture. They can be worn up higher around the waist or lower around the hips. This belly chain is made of Japanese seed beads and has two turquoise charms
Materials: sterling silver, Japanese seed beads, Sonoran Gold turquoise
Measurements: chain length: 36 inches

Note: Depending on how you want to wear your waistbeads, you can measure yourself above your navel, just at your navel, or right above your hips. Use a tape measure and measure against your bare skin without sucking in your stomach. You shouldn't hold the tape loose nor too snug.
