    Bead choker???

    Picked this up yesterday at a local pawn shop. The owner said a guy sold his collection a few years back and this was the last peice he had left. It's Supposably a bead choker from the early 1900's. It seems to be threaded with organic material possibly sinew and the beads are glass. It is coming apart in one one place which makes me think it's old. Any idea on tribe or part of the country?

    Red beads with the white centers are White Hearts, trade beads brought in mainly by fur trappers out west in the mid 1800's, my guess is the choker originated somewhere out west.
    Can't wait to get back out there!!!

    Trade beads

    Looks cool to me! Thanks for posting. Here are similar examples found by crawling around north west Nevada. I think GBM has the right idea. The beads have been manufactured in Venice since the 16th century to current.
