Traditional West African tie-on waistbeads intended for long term wear.
To whom do we accredit the famous quote "I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired?" Fannie Lou Hamer, an iconic figure in the civil rights movement, is known for her unwavering fight for suffrage and equality. During her time with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) she was harassed, beaten, and arrested by police, and did not let this abuse stop her from her work for her community.
It should be noted that Fannie Lou Hamer was one of many African-American female victims of forced sterilization. These waist beads would be ideal for women seeking healing from womb traumas, drawing from the strength from Fannie Lou Hamer and the healing properties from the green glass beads, associating with the heart chakra. Heart chakra stimulation can help while grieving/mourning, and seeking love.
