Half-drilled beads and stones are easy to work with

A great advantage when working with half-drilled stones and beads is that no special tools or equipment are required. Often, a strong jewelry glue is enough when mounting the beads, and the beads are therefore also suitable for beginners in DIY jewelry making.

The halfway through drilled beads are popular for earrings because they fit perfectly on studs and can be attached to everything from ear hooks, ear wires and ear chains with the help of eyepins. When using studs, you can also easily turn the fine stones or pearls into pendants or charms that can be attached to bracelets or necklaces.
