Scrabble Pendants for Teacher Appreciation Day

I've been playing around with scrabble tiles for a while now, but have never found real success in a way of presenting them.  Either the glaze on top bubbles, or the silver foil doesn't stick, or I keep running out of bails to hang them from.  The other day a teacher was wearing the most adoreable of scrabble earrings and they simply had holes in the top to hang them with.  So simple!  Why do I always take the complicated way out?  I tried it out with these samples, and I think it looks not too bad...good enough for "teacher appreciation day" gifts, I bet.

I did buy a new soldering iron today, hoping to recreate the glass slides of a few weeks ago, but it's just not working out for me.  Either the solder, flux or the iron isn't working and I'll have to figure out the answer.  That's enough crafting for today. Happy I had success with a little drill hole!
