Thin solid wire taken from ethernet cables (I think 24-26AWG) bends very easily and snaps.
I'd love to have one of the nice specialty crimpers to produce a nice bind like that picture, but the price of the official tools is downright ridiculous. If I ponied up $200 or more for a crimper and then had to abandon my stock when Molex decides to stop producing that part, I'd rage-quit electronics. If in doubt, just add a touch of solder.
