I received my waistbeads today and to say that I am pleased is an understatement. I absolutely LOVE them…the beads are so tiny, delicate and beautiful, and I can’t even tell I have them on at all. – February 23, 2012

Thank you for sharing your time and knowledge of waist beads this past weekend. You’re a great speaker, your calm demeanor and beauty can light up any room. I feel a sense of calm since I got my waist beads, and it feels real….thank you! – September 1, 2014

I’ve been wearing Beads by Ayodele for many years now, and even    decorated my wrists with mutiple beaded strands made by her as well. They have really become a part of me and I feel naked without them. They have also helped me with my weight loss goals as my beads do let me know when my goals are not being met. I’m so grateful to have Ayo as my lifetime beader

I wear the orange waist beads in honor of my daughter Soleil being that her name is the French word for “sun.” Orange brings energy, warmth, vibrance, creativity, optimism, and balance. My Orange beeads were beaded at my baby shower, it was a wonderful experience to share the gift of wearing waist beads with my friends and family on such an occasion.

The white waist beads i wear symbolize birth, innocence, peace, cleanliness, healing, truth and purity. They also represent Soleil’s middle name, Safiyah which is Arabic meaning “pure.”

I also wear a yellow/assorted color bead set (similar to Joy-Africanaa) with the purpose of consuming a variety of color energies. Yellow is symbolic of sunshine, joy, imagination, and hope. A color that “lifts the soul” through the Solar Plexus chakra and “promotes personal power and fulfillment, abundance, courage, and self confidence.”

I love my waist beads and look forward to expanding my collection alongside life events or simply to feel more like a Queen!

I have been getting beaded for a little over 5years and I must say I am absolutely obsessed with Ayodele’s beading. It started with just my waist and have grown to an assortment of colors around my ankles, wrist, amd soon to be custom bodychain as well! My beads are really apart of who I am! Im in love with her stones and the authenticity of the African beads/stones, as well as her design patterns. Im blessed to have met Ayodele and would glady refer her to any and everyone interested in genuine African beading.

I met Ayodele at an event over two years ago, and immediately connected with her beautiful spirit while being fitted for my beautiful waist beads. About six months ago I noticed my waist beads getting larger, or I smaller. “Yay.” Without a problem she refitted me and I really enjoyed my experience. Six months later to date, I noticed that my beautiful waist beads were not around my waist. I’m like how could that be possible without me knowing, or perhaps accidentally breaking them or noticing scattered beads around me? “Poof,” my waist beads were gone without a trace. So, I located Ayodele’s business card where she defines the color concepts of the waist beads. In that moment of clarity, I realized that I’m ready for another color of waist beads and energy in my life.

Thank you Ayodele for the concepts for my new color energy awareness. I am excited about being refitted by her next week and to experience, which color energy will call me forward. Iyodele, also said that I could incorporate my personal stones into her designs I’d like to.

Oceans of gratitude Ayodele for such client quality services.
