This is an extremely interesting bead,as the original was found by the Twitter account @logolostatsea . They beachcomb almost daily and in addtion to the thousands of pieces of LEGO they find, occasionally theyhave other little treasures.
This is one of them. The original was examined by Margaret Guido who declared it a 6c Saxon bead identical to one found at Wallingford.
Really. And it's just such a happy bead!
Approximately 30mm wide with a 2.5mm hole.
There is a little video of it being made from YouTube, here goes!
