White Heart Beads…add a piece of history to your life

The history of the “White Heart Bead” dates back to 1480. Yes they have been around a very long time.

The rose coloured beads were considered very rare indeed and are highly sought after even today by collectors due to one simple reason being that a thin layer of gold was applied to the inner core.

Initially used as trade by the Hudson Bay Company on their ventures into North America in exchange for fur pellets they became highly priced amongst the Native Americans for their beautiful vibrant colours something that was alien to them.

Taken for granted in Europe as just another glass bead they were used as barter and stockpiled by the Chiefs to gain status and prestige in the same way we use paper money today.

We love them and use them often as they are a delight to work with and no matter which other bead you pair them they will bring out the beauty of the entire piece.

We have several pieces that have the white heart bead in them and a few where the entire piece is made up entirely of the white heart.
