This ¼ inch nail head rivet from Vintaj is a perfect size and will hold up to 3 layers easily. I've included some design inspirations in the photos. Give riveting a try, you'll love it! Layer metal pieces for exciting new designs.

Riveting tips:
1.Punch or drill a 1.25 to 1.6 mm hole into your pieces. An ultra fine Sharpie marker works well to mark your holes before punching.
2.Slide rivet through the holes with the nail head at the back. Very important: trim rivet with wire cutters quite short, to about 1/16 inch.
3.Lay your pieces on a hard surface, preferably a steel block over a rubber block. Using a chasing (I use the small rounded side) or ball peen hammer, lightly tap the rivet end, working around in a circle, so it spreads out and covers the hole. You can gradually increase the intensity of the hammer taps once it starts to splay. Keep tapping until the rivet end is well flattened and is tight within the hole.
With a little practice, you'll have it in no time. If the rivet bends, you haven't cut it short enough.

Stack, layer, collage....Rivet pieces of metal, plastic, leather, and more together to create a multi dimensional jewelry design.
