when i was in Sarawak in 2015 i sold a small collection of "yellowjackets". when i got back i realised i had none left, so just now in Tucson i was looking out for a few more examples.
On the short string in the middle are a few i found individually, and a long loop shown round the outside.
the types vary- there are:
1) a couple with wide apertures and red centres,
2) one or two with white then red, then yellow then black with yellow stripes,
3) and then again white central layers followed by red, white, black, yellow stripes...

the other string has all beads with narrow holes, red centre layers then white then black and yellow

they seem to have a slightly different red perhaps- and i wondered if those might be Chinese "tributes"?

Any ideas, anyone?

Hi Stefany,
From what I can tell from your photo, the white cores are authentic Venetian, all the red cores are new repros, probably Chinese.

They look new to me, Stefany - especially those on the left side of the photo. With the exception of a few, the others might be modern Chinese! Let's hope I'm wrong - I am not the ultimate expert for modern Chinese fakes.

Was nice to see you after nearly 2 decades - you haven't changed a bit.

well...
the unmatched ones were-picked out from Leo Hakola's mixed assortment which he collected before the chinese started making chevrons, the wide slightly distorted tubular ones with a red centre layer do not look chinese to me.
the string on the left was in a booth in the African Village, and as it wasn't highly priced i got it anyway. i do think they might be chinese because of the regularity and the red colour...
