Riveting

riv·​et·​ing | ˈri-və-tiŋ

verb

A method of joining two objects together by making hole in each piece, before passing a screw--composed of the same metal as the piece--through the holes to join the parts

Riveting was used in jewelry, instead of soldering, when it was not advisable to use heat or when one part was intended to swivel.
