Drill Bits from Cooksongold

A drill is the most accurate way of creating rivets for metal jewellery and metal working; and, with one of our drills, you’ll get the rivet hole in the place you wish. Use specific jewellery drill bits to make rivet holes for a chic cuff, beautiful bracelet or a fashionable statement necklace. You can drill just about any stone you can find for beautiful bead creation – including beach stones – but we recommend you begin with sedimentary rocks such as sandstone, mud-stone or limestone.

Best drill bits for glass and shell

Our jewellery drill bits are designed to cut through most materials that you would want to create beautiful jewellery. A helpful drilling tip when drilling glass or shell is to wear safety glasses and work on your item whilst it’s sunk into water to keep it cool. For long shank drill bits, try our Hss Shank Drill 1.0mm, Hss Shank Drill 0.80mm or our Hss Shank Drill 0.50mm – all made from high-speed steel and manufactured by Busch, the efficient, innovative and century-old company that produce rotary precision instruments and tools worldwide.
