    I use the wire for flower arrangements. It is thin enough even for zing-it and has a plactic coating which makes it easy to slip through the core.

    I got some piano wire at ace. Comes in lots of sizes and is quite stiff. Bent in half and then a little L on the end with some heat shrink tubing to hold it together and give you something to pull on. Works like a charm.
