Each just a couple of mm in diameter, silver in appearance with pearlized caps. I believe these are Pentatomidae eggs, possibly of the Spined Soldier bug.

Habitat:

Found secured to the tip of Senecio serpens succulent.

These reminded me of the tiny metal portable bagatelle balls we used to play with as kids. Don't see the board game anymore...but the memory just came alive. Thank you!
