Teardrop nickel studs are small metal embellishments measuring 22mm in diameter that are commonly used in leathercraft to add both decorative accents and functional reinforcement to leather items such as bags, belts, and jackets. They are sold in packs of 10 and are made of durable and corrosion-resistant nickel, making them able to withstand heavy use and exposure to the elements.
To attach these studs to leather, a leatherworker will typically punch a hole in the leather where the stud will be placed, then insert the stud and fold down the prongs on the back to secure it in place. This creates a strong and long-lasting bond between the stud and the leather.
Teardrop nickel studs are a popular choice among leathercrafters for their versatility, durability, and aesthetic appeal. They can be used alone or in combination with other types of studs and hardware to create intricate and eye-catching designs on leather items.
