My sister and I used to make scrabble jewelry all the time.  Here are a couple of suggestions:

1. I really don't recommend that you try to drill side to side.  Even the smallest bit breaks up about 1/3 of your tiles.  If you do, make sure that you drill first ( you must put the tile in a vice..otherwise you're likely to get the hole in your finger and not in the tile!!) Aske me how I know!!!  Grin  Then do your artwork.  That way, you don't ruin your hard work.

2. I would suggest that you drill a hole on each side, top to bottom.  Then, you can just jump ring them together, and put a clasp on the end.

3. You also could epoxy them onto bracelet blanks like these:

I was picturing screw eyes, like this:

The smallest on this site are 6mm long, but consider that at least half the length would be screwed into the tile.
You could screw them into each side, exactly where you thought about drilling all the way through.

If you're familiar with beads at all, a bugle bead (or two) super-glued on the back would probably work well.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I'm working on getting the eye screws in and connecting them all with jump rings. I feel so silly... I totally forgot about jump rings.  Smiley I thought about using the eye screws because I had some I was making necklaces with, and I was like *drool* but then what? Ha! I was going to thread a ribbon through them and then tie it or something.  Cheesy

Oh boy. I'm all set now.
