Beads




These beads have been sold in stores like The Space as fashion's take on the traditional Zulu beads sold at any self respecting Zulu traditional medicine shop. I have never seen a black person wearing the beads as a fashion statement. I think it would be confusing as to why wear them. So I've steered clear of the beads. But I think I've found a way to wear these with feeling like people might mistake me for isangoma.
