I have 4 similar examples - one with coral beads, one with coral tubular white hearts and one with deep red glass beads, and one that's just brass. All the brass beads are very similar and just like your picture.
Some of my examples have brass crucifixes. All have a few coins (from 1700's to 1928) - from Ecuador, Chile, Colombia and Peru.
I bought two of the necklaces in Ecuador in 1978. More recently, during a trip to Otavalo Ecuador, I was told the brass used to be made locally but no longer.
I'll try to post pictures later, if I can figure out how to do it.
