This looks a bit like Rhipsalis - although the picture is a little fuzzy and it's hard to tell.
If it has very slender green branches, and no leaves, with tiny soft prickles, this could bit it.
I've got several different ones, and this one looks similar to Rhipsalis piocarpa, which might be a place to start. You can find more pictures of Rhipsalis here on Dave's Garden Website that it resembles:
Rhipsalis teres f. prismatica
Rhipsalis baccifera subsp. mauritiana
Rhipsalis teres f. heteroclada
Best of luck finding your plant name,
