I've got the dremel, the glass project, and the bit.  Any tips, pointers, etc. on the best ways to work this?  Essentially I've got 1" X 1" squares that I've cut and I'm just trying to make them less sharp, so if worn as jewelry they won't impale me.  Is this even possible?  I really like the clear edge of the glass.

i have never used a dremel to sand my glass - so I don't really know what I am talking about.
I have a glass grinder for my stained glass projects and it has a water resevoir and a sponge to keep the grinding head cool.
The glass chips more when the head isn't kept wet.
Hope this is usefull.

I bet a dremel would work. I typically use a grinder but if you're only using small pieces and you moisten it, I bet it will work.  You just need a damp sponge. Just be extremely careful mixing water and electricity!

Actually, I have some glass that needs to be ground and a dremel I have been itching to use so maybe I'll give it a shot tomorrow and let you know.
