Hmmm ... Wax... They would be much easier to drill - save on the drill bits lol Interesting colours in those little wax ones. More what we associate with the nicer Edisons.
I was thinking that very same thing! I use carbon drill bits on my Tahitians, and even then some are really tough little buggers. I did recently use my dremel to enlarge a drill hole to 2.3mm for a prototype piece and I will never be brave enough to do that again. I'm just going to have to buy bigger drill bits for this project. Which brings me back around to the point, how tough are these tiny pearls to drill and what size bit would you use on a 3-4mm pearl?

haha, made me laugh too! And also thinking it might be a bugger to knot. What is the benefit of using the wax bead nucleus? Jeremy, I'm loving the rich colors and sharp luster on these little beauties!
