Im not 100% sure, that the "eye"-bead is not Venetian, but I have my doubts, because of the very small perforation and even more because of the rounded ends, which are unusuall for Venetians (traded to Africa) of this size, but often to find on Chinese and Indonesian beads.
The blue/white bead is from Ghana, made of crushed Venetian or Czech beads, without a basis but with the typical conical hole...
