Description

Use the Elastic Cord Needle to plan out your beaded design, stringing the beads onto the wire, then catch 0.50 - 0.80 mm stretch cord with the threader hook, and slide your beads onto the elastic cord. The looped bottom of the Needle will hold your beads in place as you are stringing them. Fits beads with holes 1 mm (0.040 in) or larger. Size 6/0 seed beads work and some stone beads. Most glass firepolish does not. Size 8/0 seed beads and smaller do not. One needle per pack, 10.75 in (27.3 cm). Surprisingly useful.

By the each.

Needle - Elastic Cord Needle -


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!
