Waist Beads

April 2024

April 9, 2024

Workshop Lead: Eleshia Thomas

Come to The Jamii Hub to create your waist beads! At this workshop led by jewelry crafter Eleshia Thomas, we will be diving into the culture of waist beads, where it started to present day. As a participant, you will learn to use the bead-making tools while tuning into your spiritual intent during the creative process. At the end of the workshop, you will leave with a beautiful piece of adornment to wear and display and to stay in tune with the intention of your creation.
