This is an Old Red, Yellow, White and Blue Beaded Belt from the Pokot Tribe of Kenya. Tribal jewelry in Africa were traditionally used to tell about something or to tell a story. Depending on the African culture and times, jewelry has been used as a cultural affiliation symbol or designated as a status. Usually those things were used for ritual dances, waist chains or beaded belts were used at wedding ceremonies, to celebrate happy moments in family life. Even today as in the past, people in this place use African Jewelry to enhance personal beauty, personal style and in the same time displays the artistry of African craftsmen. In all cultures of the world, jewelry is an important aspect of fashion especially for woman. Jewelry can stand you for many things. Sometimes jewelry can show off your wealth, keep you one with the earth, protect you from evil, or maybe will bless you with good luck and all this according to the African legend. Africans shares those traits with other cultures’ jewelry, but it also has interesting past, because they truly believe that every piece of jewelry has something magic inside. This belt has strings to tie around the waist. A wonderful item to add to your collection.
