A standard earwire could be added to the drilled hole. Additional drill holes could be made with a punch or twist drill if there are more flat areas on the metal pad, allowing you to place those holes where you would wish to add bead dangles. Rivets can also be added to the punched holes for function and embellishment.
If the post is not affixed to a pad or the pad is too small for drilling, consider turning the post into a simple loop and then using this to attach the earring to another finding more to your liking, like a fishhook or leverback earwire, using a jumpring.
