Bought a Drill to make Nature Jewelry

Bought myself a drill today with bits small enough to make small holes in "nature" items such as seeds, nuts, bark and seashells. I've been dying to make nature jewelry for a while now....so for my birthday I treated myself to the ability to explore this new art. I bought a drill, 2 bits 1/16 and 1/32, a vise and tomorrow I will take the kids to Rock Creek to find treasures to make my new jewels.....the kids are also very excited......
Check out this drill. It was $32 on sale at Ace......it's very heavy.....can't wait to learn how to use it......
As all changes in my life...this idea was sparked by a book.....and here it is.....I rented it from the library and it made me feel I might actually be able to do this.....
Here are some of the pages in the book....I LOVE art books....whenever we go to the library that is all I every get......I feel like a hungry child and looking everywhere for inspiration.
other pages in that book....
and some more......will share more as I get going......
