  • I love to try out new things. The possibilities are endless!!!

  • linda g

    i’ve been wanting to try riveting for ages so i can layer metal components and found objects for jewelry.

  • Melissa

    I would LOVE to try this! I’ve just started getting into metal working jewelry & this would be so much fun to add to my collection. :)

  • Mahoghani Johnson

    I’ve recently got into working with metal in my jewelry making. While it is just a hobby I find it so fascinating the thing you can do with metal, I absolutely love learning new things about jewelry and metal working. This piercing and riveting tool would be excellent addition to my growing jewelry kit.

  • michelle

    Just getting into altered art type stuff and working with metal tags/charms- this would be so cool! =)

  • I have two small granddaughters underfoot, and cold fusion seem like a safe, happy way to work on jewelry, while they are around! I’m looking forward to trying the new riveting system.

  • Mariela

    I know how to and I think is a great skill because it allows you to make cold connections. Connect 2 pieces of metal, stack more than 2 pieces a charm on top of a pendant etc. is great and is the closes to soldering that you can get without using fire!
    Hand made rivets are fun but that tool for sure will make it so much easy and faster, love to have one!….

  • I want to learn to rivet because you can make seriously cool things without having to worry about the chemicals/heat/etc of other methods of attaching metal to other metal. <3!

  • Theresa Swearingen

    I am new to making jewelry and have started making bottlecap jewelry, and this would be so perfect for me to help punch small homes in the bottlecaps and poptops i’ve been using. PLEASE pic me, I could so use this.

  • Teresa Whitaker

    OOOh I want one! I would love to play around and learn riveting! I have soooooo many many ideas fro some great jewelry pieces and can not see them come to fruition without learning this…..I am excited!!!!

  • Roxy

    I would love to add riveting to my crafting list of know how to’s

  • Donna

    I would love to have this tool because I’m just now starting to work with the Vintaj line and other brass components and need this to punch holes!! Thank you very much for your kind consideration. :)

  • Terri Allen

    I want to add to my skills and this would be a wonderful skill and addition to the beautiful artwork…

  • Brandy Mahnken

    I think it would be a wonderful new way to work with the found parts and recycled items that I already enjoy making jewelry out of.

  • Melody

    I do historical re-enactment. I could really use this item for decorating my leather work, armor and other costuming items.

  • I would love to win this as I have been wanting to get into metal working so bad! Eventually I will do it, but winning this will make that sooner rather than later :-)

  • I want to win this for my wife, Tabatha. She’s just getting into her creative side, and has been doing sculpture, but she’s also a seamstress and would love to be able to use rivets. I’m always trying to be supportive of her artistic side, so this would be a great way to see joy in her eyes.

  • Mitchell Schuller

    I can’t even believe this !! I was just at a hobby store trying to get info on riveting because I want to make jewelry. I have seen so many cool designs I want to try and have been going crazy trying to figure out what to use and where to get it, and BAM! here it is !! Can you tell I am a little overjoyed ? lol

  • I would LOVE this tool. I’m interested in riveting and I’ve tried it. But I’m riveting challenged and would like to learn an easier way :)

  • Linda Palma

    I am trying to get a jewelry business started and this would be a AWESOME addition to my tool box!!

  • Lori

    I learned to rivet the “old fashioned way” with a hammer and saw and scraps of metal, this tool looks like it would make riveting so much “easier” and “more fun”.

    I’m immediately imagining how I could use it with my metal and enamel work to add some embelishments without worrying about a hammer slipping and marring my work.

  • Brenna

    I have not used rivets before… but I love the look that they give to jewlery! I love the way connecting metal would add depth and interest to my work.

  • Darcy Clay

    I have several projects in mind that need some form of (strong)”connection”, but have no room in my tiny NYC apartment for a sewing machine and I am afraid of working w/ any type of heat bonding as I have limited strength/control of my hands due to Multiple Sclerosis. I think that rivets would work nicely for what I’d like to make.

  • Lee

    I would love to have a riveting tool! It would be a great addition to my jewelry making arsenal!

  • Dawn Mitchum

    I don’t know the first thing about riveting….i have been doing crafts since i was a child when my grandmother taught me how to crochet when i was 6….i have beaded, painted, wooden crafts, fabrics, plastic canvas, etc. and had a craft business for over 20 yrs until my father passed away and i no longer had a partner for my woodworks… I am a nurse who has been unemployed for 3 yrs now due to illness and now the economy and am having to think how to reinvent myself if necessary (am 54 yrs old) and i have been thinking about going back to what i love most….crafting….i would love to learn how to rivet, it sounds interesting and totally like something i would love to do…thanks for the opportunity to get to know this new item and possibly new venue for income…Dawn Mitchum

  • Deb Dickison

  • Connie

    As I continue to learn and grow in my obsession with making jewelry, I am ever on the lookout for something I can learn and add to my repetoire. This looks to be new and doable. My kind of tool!

  • Cheryl

  • Virginia DeKerpel

    I just started making jewlery it is my stress reliever. I’m a mom of two small kids and a business owner and my stress level was thru the roof. The only time I seem to slow down is when I’m making jewlery. I love love it and I want to learn all techniques. Of course my girlfriends love my new hobby because they end up with some fabulous pieces.

  • I have been doing jewelry for almost 15 years and I have been trying to master riveting. This tool would be a blessing to me! I’ve lost some use of my hands so any tool that helps is awesome. I want this tool SOOOOO bad!!! I haven’t had much luck lately so here’s hoping I get a break!

    Oh how exciting – this will definitely give me more confidence with my jewellery making. Have tried riveting recently but with mixed results.

  • Betty

    I love making jewelry. I am interested in learning how to rivet, since I am not the best solderer in the world. Combining different colors of metal with rivets would give my pieces a new and updated look. Thanks for carrying innovative products. I love FusionBeads.com. Just what the Doctor ordered. Yeah!

  • Kent Yearsley

    My wife is obsessed with doing jewelry and this tool would help her out so much. She would definitely put it to good use.

  • Maren Disney

    I WANT THIS GADGET! It is so neat looking. I would use it until it fell apart (hopefully not though). Your site is so great and you have a really good collection of products.

  • Theresa probett

    I recently split with my partner and he got the business out of it, so I am at a loose end and trying to start my own jewellery, bags and embellished cushion business. ! This would be perfect, but too out of my price range to treat myself too! X

  • Debbie Myers

    Love to rivet, becuse it is fun and I love the objects I make or shall I say could make if I had the tool and the time! thanks…

  • i love riveting because it’s a COLD connection. i HATE working with fire and this is a wonderful alternative. it also gives a great look to a design if you use it in just the right way with just the right tools. ;-)

  • Carol Ascher

    I would love this! I am taking a cold connect class next weekend! I love the idea of being able to rivet everything!

  • Kathy Quickel

    I am anxious to make cuff bracelets and use the riveting tool to add metal and lucite flowers.

  • Riveting is another cool connection, and it`s fairl easy especially with the new tool that not only makes the hole but makes the rivet for you. No more ending up with messy rivets.

  • I’ve been wanting something like this for so long, I just didn’t know what it was! So many projects that needed “something” that got left unfinished or scrapped entirely.

    Good luck everyone :)
