The major advantage of a twisted beading needle is the large collapsible eye that makes it extremely easy to thread.
Twisted beading needles come in light, light-medium, medium-heavy and heavy duty. Use light needles for smaller (2-3mm) beads and freshwater pearls, light-medium and medium-heavy needles for 4-8mm beads and heavy needles for beads larger than 8mm and large-holed beads.
|Place the first couple of beads in the design onto the needle.|
|Pull the beads down the needle and onto the thread.
Note: Pulling the beads past the eye of the needle will cause the eye to collapse. You may feel a bit of resistance on the first pass of beads and that is normal. There will be less resistance when stringing on additional beads.
