okay. They are from Tandy Leather. I got many because they were on clearance. But I can't imagine that no one else would carry them. Let me get back to you. I'll take a picture of how I used them. I had to buy a hole-cutter and a small kit for setting decorative or gem rivets. I love them though, well worth having and knowing how to do.

Type "synthetic crystal rivets" into the search bar.
