Go to Paths tab and choose Make Work Path.
Pick the sequins brush and choose the size of the brush. I will use 14px but you can adapt it to your text size.
Make sure you are in the Sequins layer and on the Path tab choose Stroke Path.
You can use the Brush Tool to add sequins on the border.
Create a new layer above the Sequins layer. Add this chrome texture and right click to Create Clipping Mask.
Add this layer style to the Sequins layer. For the Color Overlay use the color that you want. I used the color #bca64d to create golden sequins.
If you want you can add more sequins using the Brush Tool. You can also add a more realistic look by using stitch brushes to create a sewing effect.
