DIY Project: Make your very own Pearls in Half!

You have probably seen those photos of beautiful pearls that have been "cut in half" so you can see their inner structure, and you probably wondered how those are worked: are they sawed off? maybe a machete?

Well, wonder no more! This little video explains in detail how you can make your very own, very nice...pearls in half.

You will need:
  1. Sandpaper sheets, one of each: 60 (very rough), 80 (medium grit) and 220 (fine grit, also called "water sandpaper").
  2. Scissors
  3. A small container with water
  4. A flat, open surface (good table)
  5. A drop of oil (mineral is better)
  6. Pearls! Just make sure they are between 5 to 10 mm in diameter. Larger and smaller pearls make it quite more difficult!
So, just jump into the video and get the details. This was a special request by StarryPearl and I was incredibly happy to make it happen for her and any other person that has wanted to know how to make these. Hope you like the video!
