Aside from the enchanting/lovely, beaded curtains that adorned our homes and the household of others I loved the beads that adorned my hair back in the day.
My mother was an exceptional hairstylist- far before she experimented at a school for professional beauticians. She had a natural talent.
My mother always kept my hair clean, healthy, and looking nice.
My hair was kept long as a child.
From time to time My mother would corn-braid my hair in fancy styles while sometimes decorating five sets of clear-colored beads mixed with a solid color to each lock, securing the ends/tips of my braids with aluminum foil so the beads would not ever slip out.
I loved the sounds the beads made when they hit up against one another just like the ones that hung up in our home did.
