Traditional West African tie-on waist beads intended for long term wear.
Carlota Lucumi, also known as La Negra Carlota, is a Cuban icon because of her fearlessness as she lead a slave revolt with her machete in hand. Her story is famous for the use of West African rhythms, "talking drums," to devise her escape plan for herself and other enslaved Africans, which was done successfully. Though these waistbeads are gorgeous and dainty, Carlota's story brings forth the energy needed for any woman wearing these beads to feel strong!
