aw those are soo cuute!!!
if u cant find earring studs, you can always go to a claires or something like that and buy the earring studs that are fake dimonds in a bunch of diffrent colours that come in packs of like 10, and then just glue the zipper to the fake dimond so you can see it

I just bought the earring studs from my local craft store, if you're really stuck, try eBay!
