For this project, you'll need sea-glass pieces of the same size and color. Keep in mind that thinner pieces are easier to drill.

How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Fill a plastic container with a small amount of water, and set a shard of sea glass inside; it should be slightly covered but not submerged (drilling the shard in water will guard against cracking and prevent it from getting too hot).

Step 2

Wearing safety glasses and holding the shard with the eraser end of a pencil, make a hole in glass using a craft drill fitted with a No. 61 diamond bit (it may take a few tries to drill through completely).
