One of my favorite things to bring back with me whenever I travel to Ghana are beads. These beads can come in the form of earrings, necklaces, bracelets and my absolute favorite waist beads. The beads are made of different materials including the traditional powdered glass, painted glass, wood, coral and the more modern plastic beads. I, personally, prefer the traditional looks, however it can be difficult to avoid some of the plastic jewel-like beads. Despite the material of the beads it is hard to resist the allure of these exquisite pieces of jewelry. The waist beads in particular have a way of making a woman feel like a beauty to be reckoned with. They are worn under the clothes, so only the lady wearing them knows that they are there, but the sheer knowledge of their presence can make you feel quite risqué. Take a look at some of these beautiful pieces of jewelry.
