I have river stones, and some sea glass that I need to drill holes in. I wonder if this technique would work for sea glass too.
Hi – your link to the rock drilling “Live in Art” is incorrect. It is not .org
I found liveinart.com.au but, I did not find out how to drill a hole into a rock on that site.

Hi Pepper, Thanks so much for letting me know! That used to be the correct link but it seems the author has taken down their website.
I have updated this post to link to another tutorial: http://etsymetal.blogspot.com/2009/07/pebble-drilling-tutorial.html
