It seems the terms "white heart" and "yellow heart" have passed into common usage for both drawn and wound beads. Today, even the Venetians use these terms for both types since they are widely understood by the entire bead world. See for example the listings of the Venetian store Parapamiso.

When someone decides to dig into bead history, they will encounter other terms like “ox eye”, and appreciate their relevance. BCN is certainly a good place to start looking for information, and I hope it can remain a dynamic resource in the future. Also, I would encourage Jamey to post copies of his previous work on a site like ResearchGate or Academia. Accounts on those sites are free and the information will reach a global audience as well as (hopefully) be preserved for posterity.
