Firstly, I apologise if this post is in the wrong place... but I just didn't know where I should put it!!
I got two pearls in the post today that I had won off ebay (augustus) and as requested, he had half drilled them for me. Thing is, I just tried to put in a few of the gold findings I have left over to see how they would look and they've made the drill holes too small.... the findings don't fit!!
I've never had this problem before. The other times that they have half drilled pearls for me, things have fitted absolutely perfectly.
Now I don't know what to do.
I have never drilled pearls by myself- I don't have any of the equipment or knowledge and I don't particularly want to try in case I damage them (one is a south sea pearl, the other a tahitian). Yet I can't use them unless something is done!! I have tried with a number of findings (I have some pendant ones and a few really tiny mini ones from Bella findings house) and nothing will work...
Does anyone have any ideas about what I should do?!?! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
