I've been looking for rivets for jeans. I've come up with Tandy Leather, Montana and eleather. Does anyone know of another source that might have some more interesting or higher end styles?

Thanks!

Those are the only 2 that I have come up with. I never can figure out what length stem is necessary.

I've seen them at Michaels although I don't know if you would call them high end. They may be Tandy brand also.

snapsource.com sells "tack buttons"

I also came across some at an unlikely place. I received the Duluth Trading Company catalog before Christmas and paged through it and lo and behold...jean rivets. If you don't mind them saying "Duluth Trading Co." on them. They look kinda cool though.

I found this source, but I think they are a wholesale place overseas, but they are really nice rivets and buttons.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Tack buttons and the ones at Duluth are really hammer-on buttons (to close jeans). I use the snap-source tack buttons because I like their variety. Rivets are for embellishing/reinforcing at stress point like pockets. They're much smaller and don't have a shank.

I've had a really hard time finding any. I use the Tandy ones, but Like Nancy, am frustrated by the stem length. The only Tandy ones with short enough stems are kind of small...they don't look quite right.

I know Dritz makes Jeans Rivets, and I occasionally see them at Joann. They're usually in bright brass, though I know they exist in nickel. It frustrates me. I'd like copper or black. I did buy small snaps once (thoughhaven't used them for this yet), and the nipple end looks like a pretty convincing rivet. The overseas wholesalers look great, but I really don't think they're available to us home-sewers - - if anyone knows differently, I'd be delighted.

So...I'm not much help...but I absolutely share your frustration.

Thanks for the info! I never knew that and appreciate the clarification. You've saved me the frustration and confusion of trying to use those tack buttons as rivets!

I just saw them in nickel at Joann's.

Has anybody ever tried painting them with enamel (like nail polish or model paints) to make them different colors?

I've wondered if that would work.

I've been using those rivets from Joann's and they look OK, but a little too shiny silver for my taste, but once they are on the jeans they seem less offensive. I've gotten better looking jeans buttons from Joann's and Hancock's. I also thought of painting them, but I think you would have to rough them up a bit with sandpaper or a file for anything to adhere to them. I'm going to play around a bit.

The createforless site had lots of jeans buttons that look nice.

And I found a site bblackandsons.com, a site that caters to tailoring supplies that had nice jeans buttons. If they had rivets to go with them I would be all set.

Thanks for all the input!
