My name is Georgie and I'm very glad to have found your forum. I'll probably be asking millions of questions. I'm not new to beading, but I do have a very limited knowledge.
This question is about a tool I used to have what seems like forever ago. It was about six inches long, looked like a toothpick, but wider, made of metal and I could use it to widen bead holes. I was using a lot of painted glass pearls at the time that would sometimes have the holes painted over, and this file thingie would get right in there and widen the hole.
Am I making any sense? I just need to know what to search for, because "bead boring thingie" isn't working.
Thanks in advance!
Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held it's ground!
What your are describing is called a "bead reamer".
