"Personally, I enjoy wearing waistbeads. The energies they bring actually manifest in my life and they make me feel so confident. I don't often show them off but whenever I look in the mirror, I just feel so beautiful". - Ashanti✨
Can they help me lose weight?
- YES! Waist beads can be used to bring weight awareness. Rather than step on a scale, you 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.
Are colors or stones important?
- YES! Colors and Stones can both attract different energies to your life meanig you should do your reserch before just buying any pretty design! Every color as well as stones has their own mean and causes/purpose in your life.
Refer to 'Color Meanings' page for more information.
"When and Why did you start your own business?"
I've always had a little fetish for waistbeads and after they became trendy in the Unites States I couldn't wait to be apart of it. Sadly, there were too many sellers which made the beads way out of my 13/14 year old pocket. I just subsided my love for them until now. After the COVID-19 pandemic hit I saw the perfect opportunity to start my business. I wanted to create a boutique where women, young and older, can come and enjoy affodable waistbeads. - Ashanti
