Seashell projects

I have a large amount of seashells from the beach. Would like to add to my windchime collection as well as get additional ideas from you crafty folk (except a lamp). Any ideas and how do I make the holes in the shells without damaging them?

  • Dremel tool. These tiny high speed hand held drills come with all sorts of cutting and drilling bits. A higher end unit runs around $100, but you can get all sorts of nifty cutters, polishing and drilling parts that you will find very useful. I purchased mine at Sears many years ago and still used it for all sorts of cutting and drilling to this day. http://www.lowes.com/pd_225167-353-200-1/21_0__

    Dremel is what I use too. Even carved some cameos with it!

    Wow! I'm going to have to pull that thing out and become proficient with it. Sounds like I can drill into ceramic pots too. Thanks.
