Drilling Sea Glass

Drilling sea glass can be a little tricky, especially if you are not the most patient person in the world. If you try to rush, you will probably end up with a few "blow-outs". This is when the hole you are drilling becomes too wide and leaves some shiny spots on the piece of sea glass. Items needed: drill ( I use a Dremmel), glass container, small piece of wood, water, marker, and I use a hand vise type tool to hold the sea glass steady when I am drilling. You cover the piece of sea glass with water and hold it steady while drilling half way through. Flip the piece over and mark the spot where you need to drill on the other side. It is important to take your time! Different colored sea glass has different densities and will drill at different rates. Practice, practice, practice!! You can find instructional videos if you search Google:)
