White Heart Trade Bead Hoops
These earrings feature rare large handmade glass beads. Designed and made by Beyond Buckskin owner Jessica R. Metcalfe (Turtle Mountain Chippewa).
Also known as "Cornaline D'Allepo" or "Hudson's Bay" beads, white heart beads were traded extensively throughout North America from the earliest times. These beautiful, French and Czech made white heart beads are transparent cherry red glass over a solid white core - which causes the red to change hues in different light. They hang on 2.5" brushed silver hoops. Simply slide off the artisan beads for a lighter and simpler style. This item ships from the US.
