Traditional West African tie-on waistbeads meant for longer term wear.
Nehanda was a shrine worker of the Shona people of Zimbabwe who took on the name of a respected female spirit Nehanda. In the Chimurenga (War of Liberation) of 1896 against British invaders, Nehanda and other shrine workers used their traditional spiritual practices as a war tool to gain a number of battlefield victories before being captured.
The clear color of these beads represent spiritual clarity, protection and purity.
