We call a string of pearls, a pearl frieze or a string of pearls a string of pearl-like balls. If these pearl strings are straight, we speak of a pearl bar.

Beaded rods were used as friezes in antique furniture underneath cornices or top panels.

If the individual elements are designed as ovals instead of spheres, we speak of an egg bar.
