Replacing rivets in jeans

My wife recently replaced pockets in some jeans. It would have much easier if we could have removed the rivets and then replaced them (or similar ones). Anyone know how to do that ?

Buy a box of rivets and a rivet gun form your local hardware store ;)

If they were special brass rivets or something fancy like that -- you might have some problems locating them...

Removal is done with a power drill -- just drill out the center and then the rivet falls apart.
Fabric stores carry them as well.
