lampwork bead

I don’t even know how to categorize this one…It’s a lampwork bead that was handmade by Anne Londez GlassOpens in a new tab..

We were trying to figure out what this is supposed to be, because it’s clearly a one-of-a-kind that will never be replicated. Anne said that it started out as a cloud, but it ended up looking like a cow’s udder.

Whatever it is, it could be your weird friend’s new lucky bead.
