Very nice strand of red white heart trade beads from Alaska.
Trade beads were traded around the world and the red white heart trade beads were highly valued in Alaska as well as the Lower 48 where the American Indians used them for decoration on their clothing, head dresses and traded them with other tribes for whatever they needed.
These look great just as they are or you can incorporate them into your jewelry items and outfits.
These are in excellent condition and each bead varies slightly because they are hand made beads. They range in length from 23" to 25" and are about 3 mm to 4 mm sizes. Very old and very nice!
