Description

This fine short needle is the needle for beading with size 15 seed beads. Two can cross within a bead. Two needles come in a protective glass vial. Premium Tulip brand beading needles. Ideal for beading and bead embroidery. Flexible and strong. Tulip beading needles are springy so they can bend into tight spaces and bounce back to straight rather than curve or curl. Their tips are rounded to avoid splitting the thread and ease their sliding between beads. Their eyes are designed for easy threading. Do not use with abrasive material.

Made in Japan. 0.30mm x 35mm By the pack of 2.

Needle - #13 Tulip Beading Needle - (2)


You need needles! They are not glamorous - but you need them! And not just the needles you have from sewing projects - sorry! The eye needs to be much finer and thinner in order to get through the holes of the beads.

Of course - that means that threading can be a bit tricky. Magnification helps. Wetting the tip, like you do for sewing, doesn't. Use a thread conditioner (or a lip balm), or trim the end carefully to elmination frayed ends. You might need to find a small child with better eyesight and steady hands. Bribe them with cookies, or better yet, beads.

And we do have a variety of large eye needles to also help you out with that. I like the Twisted Wire needles a lot, as they collapse and crush down with the first pass through a bead, which also helps to hang onto the thread so the needle doesn't unthread itself.

We also have needles for the Softflex(tm) and similar beading wire/cable. This is actually a hollow tube that you slide onto the end of the wire. These do work and we like them a lot!
