It could also be a Stone Ball that potters used to seperate the pots prior to firing in the Kiln.
I have found plenty of stone balls in the fields but its difficult to tell if your example is round.

Its been a hand picked elaborate stone from a local beach smoothed down to form a bead that's what I think
