I’ve been collecting rocks from each of my trips for years. Recently I’ve found that I have a lot of piles of rocks around my house and I don’t really want look like a crazy rock lady anymore 🙂
I’ve wanted to figure out drilling into rocks for awhile, I’m thinking some new jewelry pieces are in my future soon?
The key is to drill with the rock submerged in a bit of water, so that it doesn’t over heat. The drill bit is specifically made for drilling out the core and didn’t require very much pressure to get through about an inch of rock. I would say each hole took less than 5 minutes to get through.
I’m pretty excited to start experimenting with drilling into more rocks and making some new necklaces or maybe a cool wall hanging?! I feel like the ideas are endless, what else could I make?
