They would be related to what are popularly called "Russian beads."
Although it is believed by some that glass beads were made at Jamestown, this does not appear to be a true story. As I understand it, they brought over an Italian glassmaker. But he (may have) proceeded to become a drunkard, and never produced much of anything.
The beads that would have gone to Jmestown at that time would mostly be plain drawn beads (perhaps dark blue, and perhaps other colors); and a-speo rounded glass beads of the "gooseberry" and similar types.
These are very different from the beads you show.
