Well I wasn't going to admit this but my DH tried to pry them off and one of the rivets broke! :shame: So then I emailed RM about possibly just getting a couple of rivets and that's when they said they could custom make some tassels for me and I was so very releived!! I really don't want to try and attempt this again myself, lol.Thank you, Linda!! I emailed Cory to see if I can get mine shortened! My dh could probably do it too but he wasn't sure if he could reuse the gold rivets or not. I think shorter tassels will be perfect though!
I'm keeping the long ones and they are making me entirely new ones which is nice because then you can have both - well if you don't break a rivet like I did, lol. I'm still going to try and replace it - just because I have to have a broken tassel - even if I never use it.Linda, that's what I figured was that the other poster had stretched her leather around the rivets but the leather could stretch more with use and then the rivet would just fall out. My dh used to work on jets and used rivets alot so he told me that if I could find rivets he'd do it. (same as your dh) But I want the color to be right so am glad to hear that RM will make some! Are you sending in your long ones or are they making completely new ones? I can't wait to hear back from Cory! I love how the shorter tassels change the look of the bag!!
