Riveting - Cold Connection

When soldering is impossible, as in the case of titanium, wood, plastic or glass, small holes are drilled into the pieces to be joined and short wires of silver or gold are hammered through these holes to keep the piece together. Sometimes riveting can be used to create movement in a piece.

This method of attachment is referred to as a 'cold connection' because no heat is involved.
