Q: What materials do you use for your waist beads?
A: My waist beads and other accessories are made with high quality beads like Chinese glass beads, Czech glass seed beads and various others. They are made with genuine precious and semi precious crystals and gemstones and high quality elastic cord for comfortable and lasting adornments. I’m improving my craft daily by learning new techniques and incorporating new styles and materials.
Q: Are your waist beads permanent or removable?
A: Removable. While they are comfortable enough to be slept in, I like being able to switch my waist beads like I do outfits. Some days you might be drawn to a different healing property. They are made of stretch material so you can slip in and out of them with ease.
Q: How do I measure myself for waist beads?
A: Depending on where you want your beads to fall, you can measure yourself above your navel, just at your navel, or right above your hips. Use a flexible measuring tape and measure against your bare skin. Stand straight up and DO NOT SUCK IN YOUR STOMACH. If you do not have a tape measure you can use a string and a ruler. Wrap the string around your waist, cut where it meets. Lay the string flat and measure it against a ruler.
