Joining a brittle element is easy Franklin. Heat the ends with a torch until it glows and gently pull the wire straight. Just be easy. It will straighten right out. Do it to both ends, and when you want to twist them together just make sure the wire is glowing when you manipulate them in any way. Then, pin them and pin them deep.
