Playing with Scrabble Tiles

Anyone up for a Scrabble tile necklace? I sure was as soon as I saw them on of course, it became one of my projects ;) Thanks to some recently purchased vintage Scrabble games, I now have loads of tiles to play with.

I played around with drilling in different locations on the tile - through the front, and down from the top. Drilling from the top broke both my A tiles:

but worked on the M and E. I used the smallest drill in the drill set, and when drilling from the top, it drilled through the tile in a slanted direction. Oh well. Practice might make it easier.

A head pin was threaded through the top drilled tiles, and a large jump ring was used on the front drilled tiles.

Cord is simple and easy to work with and looks great with the tiles. A pearl dangle was added to the E, a crystal was added to another. Any little charm would be so cute with this! Bend a connector in the head pin, thread the cord through and add the ends. Easy!

Love simple, easy, yet meaningful jewelry. I can see making more of these...until the tiles run out :) Here are a bunch I made for the girls in the neighborhood - I love giving little gifts like these.

Each one got a different little charm on it for a unique look. These were a hit! I even made one for myself on a silver chain just because :)
