Not much help but, I was going thru some pictures of Amelia that I have collected from on line and noted that some of her long sleeved shirts had cufflinks. Not sure that we can see any well enough to tell whether or not beads are involved with the ornamentation. The pictures of the layover in Lae show that she was wearing a short sleeved shirt, but maybe she had a long sleeved shirt in her belongings. Cufflinks were the only thing resembling jewelry that I saw in any of the pictures with the exception of staged publicity photos with pearl necklace and her 'wings'.

Steve -
Your comment about cufflinks made me thing of another artifact that has an unknown origin. It took a long search, but the artifact is called 2-9-S-75 and is referred to as "dragonfly". Some have suggested it is part of a vacuum tube, but being made of brass (I think) excludes it (brass would outgas in a vacuum rendering the tube unusable). Could 2-9-S-75 be part of a fancy cufflink?  I am unable to find a clear picture of 2-9-S-75 on the website, only a sketch.

James- I showed my husband the sketch of that artifact. He said it looked as though it might be part of a pump impeller. I have no idea but thought I'd share his idea.
I'm no expert; just happy to be here.👀

1930's fishing tackle (pic found on internet). The fact that there is a seam makes me think the bead is either part of fishing tackle or a cheap souvenir, rather than quality jewelry.
