If you'd like to find out more about how to drill through glass whether it's sea glass, fused glass or other craft glass pieces why not have a look at our easy to follow tutorial; How To Drill Sea Glass. The same steps can be applied if you're drilling through beach stones and pebbles as well.
Often we find a particularly tough piece of sea glass may be a bit more stubborn when trying to drill through it. This is when a small diamond core drill is needed. The core drills allow the drill bit and the glass or stone to remain cool so there's no overheating. This helps to preserve the life of your drill bit, helps prevent your material from cracking or shattering and also eases the drilling process for those stubborn-hard-to-drill sea glass bits.
