Sea Glass Bracelet with drilled

Sea Glass Bracelet with drilled

~ by Ole in Seattle, WA

This bracelet is made with glass found on local beaches

Some of the glass is not quite 100% but looks nice anyway.

The holes are drilled towards the center like beads, laced onto a strech-type string.

A clasp of some type could be added or just tied like shown.

I made a necklace similar to this and with the glass colors the same it looks like a matching set.

Drilling Sea Glass
by: Jinny Bishop

Could you please email me at lovingunity (at) and tell me how to drill holes in Sea Glass. I would like to make buttons.

What size drill bit, what kind, what kind of dremmel etc. Thanks, I appreciate it.



Hi Jinny,

If you haven't done it already, take a look at what others have suggested at our page "How to Drill Glass."

Hey Ole,

Yep, the stretch string does work and any kind of a clasp added would dress it up.

You could take it a step further and use durable beading string that doesn't break or stretch with crimp beads.

Thanks so much for contributing your pic. Keep them coming; we love to look.
