Bead Whistles

I've been making small bead whistles. I took a 20 mm round and after it hardened a bit, scooped out the insides, added a mouthpiece, and formed the holes.

The first one, was easy. The second took me about 20 tries to get it to sound correctly. Even now, it's not very good. The third sounds okay, but not as nice as the first.

I keep making variations of these. I'd like to just be able to poke the holes just right every time. Unfortunately, it seems like the first time I make holes for these whistles (no matter what the size), I do great. After that, it's a struggle.

Nonetheless, I'm still fascinated with these small toys/beads and plan to keep working on them.
