There are also reaming bits you can use with the rotary tools. The cleaning process is the same as doing it with a bead reamer but will go much faster, just use caution. If the bit catches the bead while you're holding it, let go of the bead and turn off the drill. Remove the bead from the bit and continue.
This process will also work when enlarging the hole of a bead or pearl. Use the appropriately sized bits for the chosen bead.
