Scissors.
Rivet Tool Kit. Can get for $10 on Amazon.

Method

  1.  Take one strip of leather and cut it into your desired shape. It looks cool to keep the edges rough or you can make a design into the end. Fold leather in half and repeat design on both edges.
  2. With your leather strip folded in half, punch a hole through both layers about a quarter of the way down from the fold.
  3. With the rivet kit, clamp the rivet through both layers.
  4. Slip the charm ring to attach the clamped section.
  5. Repeat with different pieces of leather for a completed set.
