The circular mica pieces that I purchased on Etsy are rather thick.  However, they have many layers and split fairly easily.  When I first started using mica I glued it down.  that works but I found that there was a cloudiness to the glued area.  Then I got the idea of using rivets.  The rivet just adds another bit of interest to the composition.

Someone from Portland sent me an APC in the mail yesterday.  It was a mystery person who said that he or she just wanted to give something to others and not receive.  Nice idea!  Thank you Mystery Person.

I think you can hand stitch mica to attach also...
