my find of the year 2011 is a  gold bead identified as beaker period/culture, beaker period is 2500BC-1800BC (Neolithic
4500BC-2200BC , Bronze Age 2200BC-800BC) now going through treasure , amazing to hold the oldest metal man used

Now that is stunning! You must have been over the moon finding that. I agree you with the handling artefacts bit - its always a strange feeling being the first to touch an artefact in thousands of years.

Great find - been interesting to hear how it gets on. I don't think it will be returned to you somehow and well done on declaring it.

 there has been different ideas on there use , hair decoration , ear ring , and bead from necklace , there going with bead m necklace these days it seems as they have a  necklace of them in b/m that came from a burial in Ireland but got to be hard to tell , mine has a small pierced hole like the ones they thought were hung from earring so dual purpose maybe ?.

With the hole it looks like an earing that would have been wrapped around the edge of the ear rather than the ear lobe.

Cool find matey
