This is what I call a 'why not?' bead. Why make a little glass artichoke? Well, why not? Beads like this are born mostly of self amusement and moments of whimsy. I imaging this little artichoke as a charm or perhaps a dangle at the clasp of a garden themed necklace.
Bead is 11/16" tall and 5/8" wide (17mm x 16mm) with a vertical 1/16 bead hole.
