Hi- if you are referring to the white "belts" around the middles of the top 3 beads at the right on the card, it appears that the bead starts off being formed as a spherical shape on the mandrel then a stripe of white is wound around the equator, then the rosebuds are trailed on, -one is left as a sphere, one is pressed into a tabular round shape and the topmost one has been smoothed into an oval or ellipsoid shape. it also shows the same 3 shapes with more varieties of designs.
i am most impressed with the ones at lower right because 2 very different colours, transparencies and qualities of glass are worked together to make a 2-colour background -then also embellished with rosebuds etc-.and then well annealed so they don't tend to crack.
