Default WTB: Faux rivet heads for metalwork

Looking for rivets and rivet heads for blacksmithing and metal work. Round heads, pyramid heads, square heads, other shapes maybe...

I found a few places but wondering where some of you have found good places or prices.

How "faux" are we talking? And how big?

If you're just looking for decoration I'd check with the arts & craft stores (Hobby Lobby, Michaels, etc) or repurpose some from another craft like Tandy.

If you want something that looks more authentic, then I'm not much help.

I'm wanting to drill holes in metalwork like say furniture, then place a faux rivet head over the hole and plug weld it on for decorative purposes. I'd like the heads to be around 3/8" up to maybe an inch. Would also want some actual rivets in the same size heads to be heated and set with a hammer also for decoration, but more for rustic blacksmith type work.

I'd like to buy like 50-100 of each size for starters.

Here's an example of something close to what I'd like to use them for:
