I think the Handy Andy's are probably worth the money, if they suit your purpose. For putting a blob of glass on top of something, then piercing a hole in the blob, they're great.

A tungsten pick can do more. It takes longer, and takes more skill to use. Basically, you heat it until it starts to glow, and then bore through the glass with it. You'll often have to bore through both sides (and you can use the Peter's tweezers to make indentions to line up the holes). It takes work and some luck (I could use more practice), but I can put a hole through about any shape without distorting the shape much at all.
