NeedlesJuly 15, 2014
Not very sturdy. I have had them less than two weeks - all five snapped on me.

high quality needlesMarch 24, 2014
the only reason i didn't rate these as "excellent" is because they aren't available in larger quantity packaging. otherwise they are excellent qualtiy.

Good JobMarch 17, 2014
These needles are great. I have made 3 wide cuffs using Tilas , 11 O s, 15 0 s, and bicones and am still using the same needle. I'm talking mutiple passes here! Love them better than my big eye needles for this type of work.

SturdyMarch 14, 2014
I have used these for embroidery and they have stood up to quite a few projects and are still going. They even have gone though multiple materials, such as suede and stiff backing, without a break. Granted they do bend but that flexibility is good for certain projects.

August 30, 2012
Have never been more disappointed in a product. bought two packages of needles #12 and #15 all 8 needles broke before I was ever able to finish one project. They had no flexibility very brittle. I often use a needle for 3-6 months before having to replace it. These didn't even last long enough to thread!

High quality?July 18, 2012
I just bought the Beadsmith needles for the first time and was I dissapointed. First needle out broke about 1/3 down from the tip after about 10 stitches, next needle did the same after about the same number of stitches. Sorry to say but my cheap ebay needles were much much better.

makes bead weaving easierMay 22, 2012
When I first started bead weaving I used big-eye needles, which are great for larger beads, but not for smaller beads or patterns where you need to make several passes. These needles are still nice and stiff, making them easy to work with, while still being small enough to work through 15/0 beads, even with a few passes.

A must haveJanuary 6, 2011
These are reliable needles that are great and are "one size fits all" tools. As you would expect, they can get bent with use, but careful application of nylon jawed pliers straightens them and extends their useful life.

Will not break that easilyJune 24, 2010
I like these needles because, "they will bend; but won't break".
All neddles can break. However I like these.
The eyelet stays the same size; even after I do not have a straight needle anymore. I am talking months.(frugal)
