As you may recall, I made a pair of Scrabble tile earrings for Jenny for her birthday. She had a friend who liked them so well that she requested a pair to give as a gift. Here they are:
For the first pair, I did a Naughty Thing and simply screwed the eye hook directly into the tile without drilling a pilot hole first. It worked so well that time that I got over-confident and tried again with these. No good. I cracked two tiles (K's at that! Precious, precious K's!) before going to get the drill with a tiny, tiny bit.
I thought it would be difficult to drill into the tiles, but it turned out to be pretty easy. Once I had drilled the holes, the eye hooks screwed in with no problem. Yay for power tools!
Meanwhile, I also made myself a pair when I made these. Since this pair is my initials, reversed, I figured it was the universe's way of saying, "Make some for yourself!" So I did. I get compliments all the time on them. I love 'em!
