I would really appreciate some help in determining which accessories to use when trying to shape broken china for jewelry making( such as a heart shape).  Thanks!

I would first use a diamond cut off wheel to rough out a shape. Then switch to a diamond bit to finish it up. I think you could use the #7144 diamond bit. You could also use the silicon carbide grinding stones. The diamond wheel is #545. But many other places sell them. The same with diamond wheel points. One good place is Widget supply here is the address http://www.widgetsupply.com/page/WS/CTGY/dremel

Hi pam, one thing that I forgot to mention is drilling a hole in the piece your working with. The best would be a diamond drill bit and a cordless drill if you don't have one use the Dremel on slow and keep your work cool that is real important if you don't it will crack or break.

You might try fixing a pair of plairs. Use foam that is firm and glue it to the plairs and try that might work might not. Wouldn't hurt to try it.
