The individual beads were made in molds and small ring beads were attached later to allow stringing. The elements shown here were intended for a collar necklace, so rings were attached at top and bottom so that the beads could interlock two strings. The triangular necklace terminal in the shape of a lotus blossom was pierced with holes for the necklace threads before it was fired.
