Default How to add dangle beads to scrabble tiles?

I am making a scrabble tile necklace for a friend's daughter for Christmas. She is wanting the dangle beads added. I'm trying to figure out what I need to add the beads. Here's an etsy link for what I'm talking about (if this is your stuff it is adorable!)

Is it a small eye hook like you would get at the hardware store screwed into the bottom? I know how to do the beads themselves, but I'm having trouble figuring out what piece it is that you put into the tile at the bottom. Thanks for any help!

It is an eye hook. I found those at my local Sears hardware store but I'm sure they sell them anywhere. I use my little drill bit (you have to predrill or it'll crack the tile in half) and voila! It cost about 8 cents a piece. Try firemountain with the buy ThreeBlessing has going on now, maybe they have some too.

Thanks! I thought that is what they were, but I just wanted to make sure. I'm going to Walmart later, so I'll look and see what they have. I don't know if Fire Mountain would have them or not, but I'll check into it. But, I need this one quick, so I'll have to check Walmart or the hardware store.

Have you tried these? I wonder how thick the actual screw part is. The scrabble tiles are pretty thin, so It would need to be pretty small I would think. I hate not being able to see stuff in person! I don't know how much stuff I've order only to not be able to use it because the dimensions were wrong.
