Maasai Bead Jewelry: Beadwork is an important part of the Maasai culture. Maasai women set aside time every day to meet and work on beaded jewelry. The jewelry they create is not only beautiful but also has important cultural significance. The beadwork an individual wears will signify their age and social status. Generally, individuals of high social standing will wear more colorful and intricate jewelry. The colors are also symbolic and have important meanings understood by the tribe.
Black: Represents the people and the struggles they must endure.
