You may be thinking of "Embossing", "Beading", "Sequin", "Spangle", or something similar? This link guides one through the many possible ways of accessorizing fabrics.
I would think this is an example of "Spangle", as it seems to involve small shiny pieces of metal or plastic used for decorating clothes, but the pieces do not penetrate the cloth, thus not studs.

There is a unique word for each and every means of accessorizing or decorating a piece of clothing.

Here is a link to a reasonably comprehensive guide.

The metallic objects attached to the mask in the picture are studs.

  • For those to be "studs", they would need to be piercing through the fabric. To my eye, they seem to be glued on instead. That would make them "Sequins", or (being metallic and glittery), "Spangles" – PcMan May 8 at 11:26
