History of Waist Beads: 

Historians say waist beads originated in Africa centuries ago. In West Africa, waist beads have several names such as Jigeda, Giri-Giri, Jel-Jelli, Dialey, and Yomba. In many parts of the world they’re known as waist beads! Traditionally young girls receive their beads, and wear them through out every phase of their life’s. They were also found on Egyptian tomb wall paintings. In Egypt they were called “Girdles”, and worn as a status symbol.   They're also known as body beads, belly chains, ETC. 

 

“Once you put your strands against your skin, they basically become a part of you! - Every time I see my beads; they make me feel really good about myself & my body! My beads never come off. I wear them during everything I do!! I wear multiple against my skin! “ - Beamed Daniellea the creator, of Glowing Glamour Gems. 


Inspiration: 

The creator Daniellea was inspired by a sold out belt from the United Kingdom. Since she couldn't buy it, she became really disappointed! She started to look and came across waist beads! Did lots of research. She learned lots of tips from the African Culture! She had also never saw them before until she was shopping at the mall & a lady showed her, her set & inspired her to start creating them! That's where the journey began.
