How do I make leather look metalic

I am making a steampunk shawl pin for one of my designs and I need to know how to give leather a metallic sheen.

Metallic leather paint is a thing that exists. Check Tandy Leather.

Meltonian Nu-Life makes a spray paint for this, too. It won't look like metal, but it'll have an even metallic sheen.

Rub-n-Buff might give better results, it depends on what look you're going for.
