I haven't done it, but I would suggest hunting down a drill bit made for glass.

 

I'm gonna go in a different direction for this. I was at Joann's this morning with my mom & I came across some beads that will work & they have a hole in them already. I may have to do some putty work as the hole obviously goes all the way through the bead.

So i just did a quick googling, and came up with these?

They are called Half  drilled  beads.

 

Interesting concept. 

 

I may look into those, but I'm happy with what I've got now. Nice thing with JB Weld UV weld, is the glue makes for a nice patch once it's cured with the uv light. If anything, I'll have to paint the bead when I'm done.

 

Also, unfortunately Reaper doesn't allow commercial links, but thanks for showing those to me.

I've settled on some little "Nerf" shot balls for this project. They aren't NERF branded but it's what you'd use em for. They are a bright yellow with a pattern on them. They are less then a inch across. What is nice is they are soft but firm enough for me to push a small wire nail through it, so I can drill out a hole on a plastic 1 inch base, then push the nail through using the head of the nail as support on the base & then glue it into the ball.

 

Glad I found these at a local 'mart.
