Beads embody beauty, tradition or culture, strength, marital status, age, power and warrior-hood. The women in the tribes of Eastern Africa wear these beaded pieces as a sign of wealth, marital status, health and to denote the number of children they have.  The colours used in beads of this design are inspired by the vibrant colours of Africa and the buzz of a market bazaar filled with colour.
