Waist beads are a traditional African accessory that consist of small glass beads on a string or wire worn around the waist or hips.  In Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, and other West African countries, waist beads are a symbol of femininity, fertility, sensuality, and spiritual well-being.

Waist beads are commonly used to gauge changes in weight. Rather than step on a scale, people can use waist beads to stay aware of any weight gain or loss in the abdomen. Waist beads don't stretch. If you were to gain weight, the beads will sit higher on the waist or feel tight.

 

This can be custom made with a closure  or can be easily adjusted with tying the string.
