Our Fashion-Come-Back for this edition is the BEAD.
Beads are small, decorative objects, formed in a variety of shapes and sizes. They are made from materials such as glass, plastic or wood and pierced for threading or stringing.
Beads are also fashionable items, used as accessories and they make great dress complements.

Interestingly, the attraction for beads cuts across gender, it sits comfortably on ladies, as it does on men. And these days, it wouldn’t be unusual, rather it would be hip, seeing men rock beads, particularly on their wrist and sometimes on their neck.
