Life has been busy so I've gotten a couple of days behind on my blog. I hope you all had a Happy July 4th!
I recently purchased some glass alphabet beads to make jewelry. I was surprised to find that the holes in the beads were so tiny that I could not insert the cording that I had on hand.
Luckily, I had some reamers that I could use to enlarge the bead holes. I found that the best technique is to wet both the beads and the reamer with water as you work on enlarging the holes. I must say that it does take a little patience and a light touch. You don't want to overwork the reamer and break the bead.
