Great news!!!! Starting January 1st, 2019, Leatherpunk will now have chrome plated brass pyramid studs back in supply for your studded leather belts and studded wristbands.
What's so special about chrome plated studs?
Simply put, the color and durability makes them absolutely beautiful. When compared to nickel, chrome has a much more silvery color and a brighter luster, which looks great set against leather. It's also harder than nickel.
As you can see in the above photo, a pile of nickel studs on the left, chrome on the right, and in the middle on a strip of leather, two rows of studs rest, one nickel, one chrome. The difference in color is noticeable and remarkable.
