Item details

These small vintage Ghana white heart glass beads are a deep glowing red color. The small size of 3.5mm is rare and hard to find. The name white heart beads refer to their opaque white glass inside and the outside is a milky translucent colored glass. This 2-layered process of making white hearts began in 1800s in Venice starting with ancient beads known as Cornaline D' Aleppo. This unique way of making these white inside with translucent color on the outside produces a much brighter color that appears translucent and glowing. These vintage beads found in Ghana were originally made in early 1900s in Venice and traded in Africa.
