Answers to our most frequently asked questions.
Q: How do I tie my waist beads?
A: If you received more than one string of beads, first separate the strings by pulling the loose end of the loop. Once free, take your string of choice and push the beads from the tied end of the string toward the loose end of the string.
Once two ends of plain string space have been created, measure where the two ends should meet. This will depend on your body and desired fit/placement. Beads may overlap- that’s okay! Just push any extra beads toward the tied end of your string so they can be saved. Tie three tight knots to form a loop around your body.
Cut the loose string and remaining beads away. Be sure to cut as close to the knot as possible. You’ve done it! We suggest repurposing any leftover string/beads to create other accessories.
Q: How long will my waist beads stay on?
A: For as long as you choose to wear them/they fit! Some ladies manage to wear their beads for years! We have heard of bead wearers wearing one string of beads for over 10 years!
Q: Can I take off my waist beads?
A: If you purchased our tie-on Waist Beads, removal will require you to cut them if you are not able to pull them over your shoulders and head.
