Sometimes, when you need to take your dress up game to the next level, all you need is a stand out statement piece. Something head turning like a grand beaded body accessory.

One Kenyan ethnic jewelry designer, Patricia Mbela designs body accessories made from Maasai beads. While she has different designs, ranging from simple necklaces to more intricate accessories, the one that stands out the most is her body accessory, worn over the shoulders to drape the body.
