Yemayah – A powerful Yoruba Orisha, or goddess. Long ago in Africa, she was the symbol of rivers and sweet waters, fertility and life, the mother of all life forms. She wore clear beads, and was a symbol of transformation. During the Middle Passage, she became the mother of the oceans and salt water, and acquired blue beads.
