Introduction to Lucumi Beads and the Foundation of orisha Beadwork

A new video on beads used in Lucumi 

The first in a series of videos that explore and explain the types of beads used in Lucumi worship to make elekes, ides, mazos, and so on. I hope to grow this series to include how to make these items for the orishas according to traditional techniques.

You can also shop for beads and beading supplies on Amazon, here:

    I hope you really do continue to make more videos. For a long time I’ve been interest in bead work and wanting to make my own things for my santos even my family but I haven’t been able to find much on this particular skill. I love the projects you’ve been working on that you e shared on the video. Do you have an Instagram a Facebook so I can see more and follow your lessons ?
