What is the best glue to stick metal to leather?

I am trying to make a leather wrist cuff for my husbands birthday with metal detailing on it, what is the best glue to stick metal to leather?
sensible answers only please.

It depends on what kind of metal detailing you are trying to add.

I usually use rubber cement with Leather as it is flexible.

However adding metal details is different, I usually use rivets, spots or conchos for those.

Anything else I use dyes, acrylic paints and carving for.

To get rivets, spots or conchos find your local tandy leather factory.

The History Of Glue Sticks Bulk

Archeologist have uncovered evidence that shows people have been using glues and adhesives sense about 4000 BC. Ancient Greeks used early glues for carpentry and had ingredients for glue that included egg whites, blood, bones, milk, cheese, vegetables, and grains. Other materials such as tar and bees wax were also used by the Romans as adhesives. One of the first glues to receive a patent was made of fish, it was patented in 1750 and issued in Britain.

The glue stick works by twisting the knob on the bottom that pushes up a small platform inside the tube, which is threaded to the knob. This force squeezes the adhesive out of the top of the tube at the desired level. This simple yet clever device has been used in a variety of products but is probably most famous in the use of the glue stick.

The glue stick was inspired by the Twist-up ease and convenience of push up lip sticks, this was the very first glue stick that you had to twist to use it. The company decided on the name "Prit" and it stuck. Only two years after its creation the glue stick was available in 38 different countries. The Success of the glue stick led to Prit producing a wider variety of products such as Powerprit, Powerprit Gel, Powerprit stick, and Prit Tape.

With the success of their products Henkel has won six awards for their innovations and has sold over one billion glue sticks in 121 different countries. The Henkel company now produces over 650,000 glue sticks a day, that's roughly 130 million a year.

Along with Henkel, other companies such as Elmers, 3M, UHU, Kores, and Snopake also produce glue sticks and other adhesive products. The Glue stick has been around for awhile and has gone through many changes during its time. These glue sticks come in many different varieties of size, color, non-toxic, washable, and acid free. From some of its main ingredients being blood and bones, glue has gone through many changes and is now an essential part of the modern day life.
