So, I want to buy a drill so I can take any little doo-dad, put a whole in it, and make it into jewelry. I have seen vise drill pens, hand crank drills, and big expensive drills. What is best for little projects but it has to go through wood and plastic and such materials??? Any thoughts would be MOST appreciated.

GET A DREMEL!!!!! They have drill bit attatchments, but also attatchments for sanding, polishing, cutting, etc. They rock!
I know you can find them at most hard ware stores.

If you want a cordless hand drill then DeWalt is a great brand.  get a little 9.6 or 12 volt dewalt, be all set for any jewelry drilling needs, AND have a tool that you will use for years to help keep your life together, one screw at a time.

Right after I posted this question, I found out that my friend Stewie gave my boyfriend a dremel....for free!! I had contemplated getting one before, but I heard they were really expensive. But now I know Dremel is a good way to go!! Thanks!! Smiley

I second the Dewalt.  It's just so versitile.  And, you'll use it forever.  And, then you can "build stuff."  Barter with the guys where you buy it and get them to throw in a free Dewalt Radio.  They run on the same rechargeable batteries and is something else you'll probably use forever.  AND the radio has a audio in port thingy so you can hook up your Mp3 player.  I Heart DeWalt.  Sorry if I sound a little crazy.
