Wondering what these are

Hello, I'm wondering what these are.

All three of them are about a centimetre long and around 5 millimetres wide, they were found on Skegness beach, on the eastern coast of Lincolnshire, UK.

They are roughly cylindrical and ribbed, with the cross-section being a kind of star shape.

look forward to hearing back :)

These are highly eroded crinoid stems I think.

I agree with eroded crinoid stems. I actually think they look pretty neat. Necklace material maybe?
