Gorgeous vintage Italian red white heart seed beads. These legendary "white hearts" were originally destined for the African trade.
Their special glow far surpasses modern versions of this popular bead. This is a rare batch in bright red, a much sought-after hue, that can only be obtained by the use of real gold in the glass formula.
Shades vary from deep orange-red to bright cherry-red to a light oxblood hue.
Great for your own creative pieces, and authentically repairing antique purses and jewelry.
Size 11/0. Averages about 17 beads per inch, 6 beads per centimeter. See detail photo to compare to modern bead sizes.
You will receive ten grams.
Sales tax applies to Washington and Pennsylvania state residents.

Shipping & policies
I send shipments within 1 - 3 business days after payment via PayPal or direct checkout is received.
Packages are sent First Class by United States Postal Service, or by USPS Priority Mail for larger orders. If you want to upgrade to Priority mail or overnight delivery please let me know. If you prefer UPS, FEDEX or DHL please let me know.
First Class packages are not insured. If you would like insurance please advise me of this prior to ordering.
China and Japan residents please note that, due to a recent experience of a lost or stolen package, I ship only via USPS Priority Mail International. Priority Mail Express International is available as an upgrade. Cost for each is the same regardless of the size of the order.
Charge for the first item includes shipping price, packaging and handling fees.
International customers are responsible for any customs, VAT or duty fees. I do not honor requests to mark the package as a gift or anything other than what it is (merchandise), as this is illegal and punishable.
I ship in a padded mailer to ensure that items arrive in good condition, and in a box if the size of the order is large enough.
I accept PayPal, Etsy direct checkout and Etsy gift cards.
Payment is due due within 3 days of the purchase. If you have not made prior arrangements with me regarding this timeframe for payment, I reserve the right to cancel the order and charge a restocking fee.
