This dialogue from 2009 may be helpful:

Regarding your beads, at one time I thought a lot of plain wound mostly-turquoise-blue glass beads, found in S. Asian tribal contexts (mainly East India) were Chinese. I have come to suspect they are mainly from India, and may sometimes include some European beads.

However, a LOT of Chinese beads come out of Thailand and the region of SE Asia.

I have shown the only "actual padre beads" I have been able to document. I am reasonably confident these are not Chinese beadsóbecause they have no mandrel release compound in the perforations. I'll show this photo when I can find it. JDA.
