I would weld them together or use silver solder. Silver solder will take a lot of heat unless you use a tig welder then you can localize the heat effected area. From the picture I’m seeing a steel spring and a stainless screw. If that is correct then a weld will be the best method, I would prefer tig welding it but a mig weld would be okay to. Either way you will need some 309 welding wire and some Trimix welding gas. That’s is how I would go about attaching the two. Any way you choose don’t quinch the work piece it will screw up the spring and the weld let it air cool.
