Custom joints for triangular forms

I need to connect the ends of metal rods at irregular angles to create different triangular forms. Does anyone have any advice on making these custom joints? Preferably as sleek and low-profile as possible.

There are a couple of ways to accomplish this, but it depends on the purpose the triangles will be used for. 

 

If it's strength you need then welding is the absolute best way to permanently attach the two joints.

The next less extreme way is to use a 2-part epoxy putty to join the two rods together. Once the it is mixed together it forms a sticky putty that will dry in minutes.

Lastly, you might try a glue gun - using heavy duty glue sticks. This method is used only if the triangles are being displayed and not handled.
