Comparing: TREASURE with STINGY

According to Signing Savvy, the sign TREASURE is defined as "Dominant hand in the bent 5 handshape facing you, starts at the chin and moves downward slightly while closing to the S handshape."

Comparing the sign STINGY, I notice no difference. I am assuming that there may be a slight change of movement or change of facial expression. Please explain. Thank you!

Look at the repeated movement.

Stingy has a repeated movement with the hand opening and closing at the chin.  Treasure is a one time closure and the hand closing is held tight as if you were holding something that is treasured.

Thanks!
