On smaller peices I use hobby came, on big peices I use H came and add twisted (like cord) H came inside that, but that's cuz it's what I've got kicking around and wanna use up, It does look good tho, when I worked as a Christmas helper at the local sg shop, zinc came was used.

Haven't used any lead or zinc for years so can't remember. Usually if I need to frame...I use a wood frame cuz glazing putty is hard to get here. But either zinc or lead cane will work. Usually you just solder on a ring and hanging with chain or wire.
