Italians call these tubos "bananas". The straight tubo was the first hand blown glass bead I brought back from Italy 8 years ago and I've now reintroduced them in more great colors. Use them for long necklaces - they can be incorporated on one side of a piece or both. There are some great design examples in the slide show on this website. This year I added the baby tubo - again to be used in long necklaces, but with a lighter look.
