These are a few of my desires and drools ...

When the skeeters bite
When the traffic jams
When life makes me mad,
I simply remember my favorite beads,
And then I don't feel so bad.

With my most profound and humble apologies to Rodgers and Hammerstein. 

26037265-01 Leather Riveting Supplies - 6x6 mm Rapid Rivet Round Cap - Gold Plated (over Steel) (100 pcs)26037266-00 Leather Riveting Supplies - 7x7 mm Rapid Rivet Round Cap - Silver (Brass Base) (100 pcs)I want to point out something about these new rivets and snaps that you should know. You will notice that some are plated over brass, and some are plated over steel. The steel ones are significantly cheaper, but will rust with time if they get wet - and are best suited for projects that are not going to get damp - more like crafty items.
For a more durable rivet, i.e. for leather bracelets, choose the plated brass rivets instead.

If you are visiting Toronto for the games (Go Canada - we rock!) and need a sparkle fix, and want to come into the best bead store in all of Canada (IMHO) - and see all the new stuff in person, we are easy to drive to or transit to - and we have free parking! Map and directions here!
