Please note that ancient cylinder seals generally were rotary-cut—this being in-process similar to drilling. Whereas most or at least many modern attempts to make copies of seals rely on wheel-cutting (using the wedged edge of a rotating wheel).
Your bead has been wheel-cut—and consequently does not accurately resemble the decorations on stone seal beads. Nevertheless, the pattern, seen rolled-out, is somewhat impressive.
You say the material is copper. However, what I see looks very much like gold. Is the color not accurate?
