Only two beads had dragons with the whites in their eyes instead of the solid black eyes that seem to be more common in this bead design.

One bead seems to have been made by a different person, as the dragon is better proportioned, colored differently, and with different cloud spirals. The background enamel is a slightly lighter green, and the end circles around the holes are royal blue instead of the turquoise on all the other beads.

The original knotted thread seems to have been light blue. I haven't burned a snippet to see if it's silk or nylon.

Measurement hole-to-hole varies around 20-22mm.
