There is a Needle for Every Job
I use these needles for weaving seed beads and light, small crystals and other delicate beads and they are perfect for the job. I especially like how they can bend to pass through beads on a curve. If you are working with heavy beads, then use a larger heavier needle. Please take the time to read a few books, watch tutorial videos, etc. to educate yourself about the tools for the craft before dashing off an inappropriate bad review. It is sad that these undeserved poor ratings may scare people away from buying these needles, if they do not bother to read the reviews.
This is the first product from Artbeads that I wasn't happy with. These needles are too flimsy. I can't pick up any beads with them because they bend almost as soon as you use them. I won't be recommending or buying these again.
These needles are good with Swarovski Crystals,
but are not heavy or strong enough to string chips
or gemstones. We need these collapsible eye
needles in the heavy size.
