These striking collars were worn by married Maasai women. For a Maasai woman, beads represent her wealth, as cattle does a manís. The colors & patterns represent clan affiliations and hold various meanings. The Maasai conjure up popular images of young brides weighted with beaded ornamentation, like the collar necklaces that rhythmically move when they dance.
