Sea Glass Jewelry

Some time has passed since our sea glass gathering vacation in Rockport, Massachusetts and I can't wait to show you what I have been up to.
The work has been enhanced thanks in part to my wonderful husband Fred who purchased a stand that turns my Dremel tool into a drill press!!!!!
That and a few diamond tipped drill bits put me in business.

The set up looks like this..............and as long as you work slowly and carefully you can drill perfect little holes in glass!

I found the directions here on You Tube.

This technique has allowed me to make these lovely stacked glass pendants and to more easily wrap these clear glass pieces.
I am really enjoying this new skill and have learned through trial and error how not to burn up the drill bits and how not to crack the glass just when you are almost through. Learning is good.
So much sea little time.
