Beadsmith FINE Beading Needles 10-PackOctober 27, 2010
They are very, very fine (thin) needles and though you can get them through the tiniest of holes, I found that when the hole collapsed I had a terrible time re-opening it to thread again. It has a round hole and I personally have better luck with the oblong collapsible opening on a needle.

Perfect for Freshwater PearlsDecember 25, 2008
I thought these needles we very good for stringing freshwater pearls. (The wire IS quite fine and it took me a little bit to get the hang of working with twisted wire though.)
I very much appreciated the size of the eye, which let me pull a double strand of thread through each pearl. I used knotting tweezers to bend open the eye up again after each strand and one needle lasted me through many strands.
The length of the needle also let me put several pearls on the needle and see how they would look next to each other before I pulled them onto the thread.
