Hey Fliss!grin Thanks for the suggestions, I'm just starting out with this jewellery making and don't know the names of half the things I needsmile

Or I read something the other day about heating a pin up to red hot and making a hole in a plastic thing with it, although that may not work with resin?

You need cabochon findings, or flat back earring findings/cuff link blanks grin

Sorry I haven't been back for a while, thought my thread was too boring for a replygrin

Thank you for the suggestions! These 'beads' are listed as that on eBay but perhaps that's not technically correct. I think they're actually cobochons, whatever one of those is!

Will check out your suggestions, thanks!

You need looped bead caps - style will depend on the shape of your beads - attatch with arraldite type glue...

THIS sort of this

Okay last one - there's an old discussion on craftster that is about someone who got a bead with no hole that might help...

Or could you stick a hook in it somehow and make it into a pendant?

Unless you could put a hole in them?

I cannot get this round my head - surely that's not really a bead? I thought a bead had to have a hole it it?
The only this i can really think of is constructing some sort of 'cage' out of wire for them to sit in? Would that work?
This is probably not so helpful - so many question marks!

Flat resin shape!

Hi, I'm starting to dabble in making my own jewellery. I have seen some flat resin beads in the shape of swallows that I like. They don't seem to have any holes though, are just a flea resin shape..
Anyone have any idea what I would do with these or how they would be attached to a bracelet/necklace for instance?
