"SPOTS"

These are called "spots".  Traditionally, you need a tool, slice the leather and then insert the spot (I'm assuming similar to that rhinestone setter kit when you were a teenager!)  Well, half the time, my cuts in the leather where too big or the holes weren't aligned or I marked up the leather.  Viola!  Just bend the prongs around the leather and squeeze to flatten them.  They hold the other beads in place- just another option if you want to use something other than rubber rings.   (When the prongs are flattened, they do not rub or scratch your skin).  The best part is - THEY ARE INEXPENSIVE - EXPERIMENT!!

Notes - the 5/16 prong is good for wrapping up to four strands of 3mm leather, like in the picture above.
In general - I think the shorter prongs are less worrisome, but the longer ones come in handy too!    The above picture gives reference to size of leather vs. heads/prong size.      

They are sold individually - I don't have time to pre-bag for bead shows.
