Many of the Maasai Tribe still practice nomadic pastoralism to this day and are considered one of the great warrior tribes. These particular beads have been around for 200 years and most likely lived many lives...from the hands of the people who made them (many trade beads were of European origin) to the body of the person who wore them...maybe even traded by warriors, conquerors, and invaders.
The myrrh is from Mali, hand shaped from the myrrh tree, as it is a resin. It gives off a faint, spicy aroma.
This wrap is named to honor proud Maasai women and celebrate femininity.
Also used are handmade brass beads from Ethiopia and 24k gold plated glass beads from Japan.
Wraps may be worn several ways as a necklace, choker, bracelet or anklet. US made magnetic clasp for easy styling.
