What are Treasure Beads?
Treasure Beads are beautifully handmade waist beads that will change the way you view your body. They are strands of bead you wear around your waist as jewelry that are an essential tool for wholistic wellness and self love. The practice of wearing waist beads began in traditional African culture and the purposes for wearing them has evolved over time. In Guinean culture, they were used to honor milestones in girls/women's lives. They were also a non-scale way to manage weight. Today, their uses have grown to include mindfulness practices like meditation, affirmations, self love, and promoting body positivity & sisterhood.
Permanent? Removable? What's the difference?
Treasure Beads offer styles made on removable (semi-stretch) cords and permanent cords. All strands should be worn on the body as often as possible to help you stay mindful of your goals and intentions. For such commitments, we recommend wearing the permanent strands. However, we recognize there may be a need to remove them under special circumstances. Should you need to take them off for any reason (medical procedure, special occasion, etc.), we recommend purchasing the removable strands as you're able to do so by either pulling them over the head ( like a shirt) or pulling down over the hips and stepping out of them.
Please note: All strands are hand tied; clasp closure is not available at this time.
Permanent strands ar a great way to commit to your goals and intentions. These strands are tied and cannot be removed until the strand is cut or the strand pops which generally signals that it is time to commit to a new goal or intention.
Do I need my waist measurement to place an order?
When you order Treasure Beads, there's no need to provide a specific waist measurement. We've got you covered! Each strand we send is carefully crafted to measure 55 inches in length, ensuring a comfortable and versatile fit for wearers of various sizes. Upon your strand's arrival, simply measure the strand to your waist size!
Should I remove them while bathing?
Treasure Beads do not need to be removed while bathing, sleeping, swimming, or exercising. Please note that some of the coated beads may fade if over exposed to water, perfumes, lotions and harsh soaps. Your Treasure Beads become un-noticeable over time. You'll find yourself washing them as you would your body!
