Unlike the beads in prior pictures, which are very light weight and appear to have wooden cores, the cloisonne beads are comparatively heavy thanks to their brass or copper cores.

The lacquer around the cloisonne again appears to be that dry paste similar to the carved beads, although the patterns do seem to be somewhat carved rather than stamped.
