Look for insulated wire with the right size, sheen and texture. I recommend wire with a solid, single-strand wire (as opposed to multi strand wire). It holds its shape better when bent to shape. Also,  by baring a short length of the copper wire on the end, and drilling a correspondingly sized hole at the attachment point, it is easy to install and fix in place with a little CA.
