      RD,
      My BF does lots of leather work and he says the best way to attach
      smooth stones to leather is to sew them on. Either get stones with
      holes predrilled or go to a bead and gem shop that will do it for you.
      Another way to sew gems to leather is to create a washer out of
      leather to fit over the stone and stitch it to the leather creating a
      permanent "setting" for the stone.
      There are also lots of metal studs with the capacity to hold stones
      in them.
      Hope that helps!
