Default How do you make Scrabble Tile earrings?

Can someone please tell me what the little hook things are called that are used to make these earrings:

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php...age=2&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title

A customer of mine wants a pair of matching earrings for her necklace and I have no idea how to do it. I'm assuming I would have to drill a hole in the top of the necklace right? Then once you insert the hook do you need to put some glue in there to hold it? TIA

It looks like a little screw on bottom and an eyelet type thing on top. HL has them near the picture hanging stuff. you drill a hole, get a little e6000 on a toothpick, put in drilled hole and then screw in.

Where did you find the drill press at? Like home Depot? Surely not that expensive of one. Ive seen them there for quite a bit of money before!

The "little thing" is called a screw eye. Most jewelry hardware sites have them.

You can also try drilling straight thru the face of the tile and use a pinch bail...I like these soo much better than eye screw.

I like those pinch bails also but the only thing is what would I hang off that for earrings? These look like they are better suited for necklaces.

I am thinking that this is what you were talking about



They are figure 8 bails https://shop.rings-things.com/cart/p...dCategory=1061

You can also use these

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php...page=&includes

The key is that the bail needs to face forward so when you put them on the ear wire they face forward and not to the side

BTW, I just ordered 3 gross and will have them for sale when I get them!!!
