First, put on your safety glasses. Hold the piece of shell or glass with cupped-tip tweezers or bonding clip. Submerge the clamped bead in a shallow pan of water that has a scrap piece of wood at the bottom (included so you don't drill the pan).
Use the rotary tool to very carefully drill a hole in the material. Warning: This technique is pretty tricky, so do it at your own risk. Please work slowly and carefully.
