The BeadSmith 12 Short Beading Needles 12-Pack
These needles are known as "shorts" or "sharps" in the beading industry. They are similar to English beading needles, but shorter. They are the perfect length for bead weaving in peyote or brick stitch.

How did I do without these.June 7, 2012
Just tried the short beading needles for bead embroidery and can't believe just how easy it makes the sewing. Up until now I have been using the longer ones that just love to bend all over the place. I would recommend anyone who does bead embroidery to give these a try.

Easy to work withMarch 15, 2011
Love these beading needles, which seem to be hard to find. What I most appreciate is the length. The type of beading I do (doll embellishing, free form flowers) is best with a short needle as opposed to the normal long skinny beading needle. They need to fit though the size #15 seed beads as well, making this the perfect needle for me!!

#12 Short Beading Needles 12-PackDecember 8, 2010
Just started using the needle. Till now my experience is quite fine. Needles having smooth movement through the seed beads, solid, don't think it will break easily. Specially because of it's small size it's easily grippable. The ones (Beadalon) I use to use earlier use to break very easily, n specially the eyes of the needles when it breaks in the middle of my project, use to irritate me a lot.
The only complain I have is the eye of the present needle, is very tiny, even slimmest nylon/normal thread doen't pass easily, I stuggle a lot to get it through.

Good for, weaving, netting, all kinds of stich, loom, off-loom work, embroidery etc....

Easy to handleMay 17, 2010
If you work with size 15 seed beads or double your thread for working with size 11 seed beads, these neeles are ideal. Shorter needles are much easier to handle than the longer needles and you get another inch out of each piece of thread. The only deficiency is the very small hole for threading, but it;s worth the hassle.
