  • What do I do with these beads?

    Hi, I've come across some beads which have a small hole, but it doesn't go all the way through. Does anyone know how to use them?

    Thanks, Emma.

    They are "half-drilled" and you would use them to make stud earrings by applying a little glue. You can buy the earring post from good suppliers.

    Found these at Palmers - scroll down the page to items 5, 6, 7 & 8.

      I've got two fittings that would fit a half drilled bead

      A sterling silver Cup and Peg ear Stud, and a Bail with a hanging Cup and Peg from it.

      With both of these you glue the bead onto them
