Correct - not the same bead

I was using these two to compare the features, not the entire bead. However, look at the picture of the full strand in my first post - and with a quick glance this one looks like a Venetian bead.

The problem as I see it - if I don't have a similar Venetian bead handy to check against, I'm not sure I can identify every new "Venetian tribute" bead. Venetian beads have so much variation in shape and placement of decoration, etc. that in many cases, as presented here, I would be fooled if I did not have the experience of examining the Indonesian beads.
