Checkout this beautiful strand of vintage-style orange white heart beads! White hearts derive their name from the inner core of opaque white glass that is coated with a layer of translucent colored glass. This process produces beads with a unique character as light passes through the bead. Beads such as these are originally of French or Czech provenance and traded in Africa. This strand measures approximately 25-26", with individual beads measuring about 3-6 x 6-7mm.
