Well I'm trying my best to find something new in my collection to focus on, that might be of general interest. Here's a weak attempt - I happened to have a strand with an unusual number of very small lamp work trade beads. So I collected together some examples of beads that are between 4.5 - 8 mm from my collection. I included an 11 mm diameter bead for comparison.

Without the larger bead in the photo, the beads could easily be mistaken for their bigger cousins!

I find the beautiful decoration on the small sized beads to be even more impressive than on the large versions. The bead makers must have had really keen eyesight!
