Drilling Holes in Acrylic BeadsMost of our beads have holes ranging from 1.29mm to 4mm with most being 2.59mm. If you need a larger hole, the drilling of acrylic beads is quite easy.
You can purchase small drill bits from local craft, hardware, or rock shops. Begin with a 1mm bit. A Dremmel tool will do great! If you don't have a Dremmel tool, a regular drill will work, but you will need a "collete" to hold smaller bits.
Holding your bead with sturdy pliers, use a 1mm drill bit, while simultaneously holding your bead under water. If this size is too small, then move up one drill bit size.
