Default Total newbie! What's the clear wire used to attach bows to clips

Hi, I'm a complete newbie here. I decided I need to learn to make my own hair bows for my daughter instead of buying them. I bought a korker barette and noticed it had clear wire wrapping the bow to the barette. Is that floral wire? I thought floral wire was green and really stiff wire whereas this is somewhat soft, but not stretchy wire.

I've seen websites mention using a lighter to heat seal the ends. Do you just hold the flame right under the ribbon ends but don't touch the ribbon?

Thanks!
