Every so often we have a customer who asks if we drill holes in stone or beach glass, or if we know how. The answer is no, to both parts. It's not an area any of us have explored so we tell people they'll have to do their own research.
Dakota Stones recently shared an article about drilling your own stones, written by their friend and jewelry designer Kristin Oppold.
The article was published on CreativeBeadChat.com, and it's a wonderful piece that not only tells you about the tools and supplies you need and how to set it up, but also provides tips and advice the author learned from her own experience.
We still don't drill stones or have experience with it, but now we have an excellent resource to get you started. So with thanks and acknowledgements to Dakota Stones, CreativeBeadChat.com, and Kristin Oppold for writing the article, we're sharing it with you.
