Amani ya Juu
Beaded Maasai African Earrings
The Maasai people are known for their beadwork. In the Maasai culture, beads are heavily symbolic but can also carry very practical significance, indicating social status, marital status and age. These beaded Maasai earrings are white, symbolizing good health after a staple in the Maasai diet, cow's milk, which provides sustenance and nourishment. Each earring hangs approx. 2”. Available in white with lavender accent beads.
