I came upon this string of wonderfully kept very old glass trade beads that are called "red hearts." They are deep orange-red glass beads that have white centers which you can see in some of the pictures. I have strung them on vintage brass chain in a way that they have incredibly neat movement and the white center is visible. Along with the beads are vintage brass beads. The clasp is also vintage brass. This is a long necklace, great for layering.

Length of necklace - 38 inches
Red Hearts - 6mm

A bit of history: Beads such as these were heavily traded by the Hudson's Bay Trading Company, and were perhaps the main type of trade bead offered to Native Americans in exchange for fur-pelts. They were not only in North America, but Africa as well.
