"White heart" refers to the opaque white core of certain wound or drawn glass beads made in Italy, France and Bohemia between 1500 and 1800. Extensively traded in Africa, Asia and the Americas, whitehearts are ubiquitous trade beads. For more information see our Bead Encyclopedia in the Reference Section.

Red to rosy whitehearts were most popular in African and Central America, while orange ones won favor in southeast Asia. Today African traders travel the world buying old and new beads in Africa and Asia and selling them in the U.S. These have clearly been strung on raffia in Africa, but may have been collected in Asia

Older beads have more muted colors and show signs of wear and tear from their age and travels. String on cable wire, SuperLon, or no-stretch nylon.

Beads vary in size from 3 to 5mm Each strand is about 18" long and contains approximately 200 beads.
Price: $25.00 (strand) Qty: Add to Cart
