Man I'm Riveting!

No, not interesting, actually riveting with metal.
I learned this new trick from an online tutorial (which I can't find now).
AND ITS FUN!
Drill holes in stuff, stick some thick wire through, and whack it until they're pulled together! What could be more fun than whacking stuff?! :)

So this was my first riveting project:

See the rivets through the copper?

And this is the underside

And my hand made clasp too

This one was definitely a good time. I get to take out all my frustrations in whacking and still have something pretty at the end :)

That looks great and I must agree that there is nothing better for frustration that whacking. My family dont understand how relaxing I find belting my spoons flat.
