Thank you, Kate! Ran into trouble with my tube rivets. Knew Beaducation would set me straight. haha Center punch and household hammer are doing the trick.

Definitely recommend this tutorial as Kate dives right into the life of rivets.

There are many great instructors in the realm of jewelry making but I can honestly say, given the choice, I would rather have Kate Richbourg in the driver's seat than any other! For some reason, riveting was a scary thing to me so I've been putting it off for years. After watching this video, I feel not the slightest bit of hesitation whatsoever - I SHALL rivet, and rivet WELL! This video is recommended to all who want to learn how to rivet and feel confident their project is going to turn out fantastic!

Wow, another Cheryle with the exact spelling as my name reviewing just before me!
I loved the class! I have for many years wanted to know how to rivet and this class was perfect. The list of materials needed helped me get rid of 'excess' (hah) cash swiftly.
I would have liked to see the copper wire available in a shorter length to help cut cost. Sorry, I bought it elsewhere.
My FIRST project was a total success!
