Size 13 beading needles are used for 13/0 beads. They can also be used on some microbeads (size 14/0 and smaller) – because while microbeads are smaller, the hole size stays consistent, in most colors. (We cannot guarantee that Size 13 Needles will work with all smaller sizes and we also recommend having Size 15 Beading Needles on hand).

Beading Needles are the long option, measuring about 2” in length. They are thin and tend to bend with use. The additional length makes them useful for loomwork, and peyote stitch.

Made in England. Contains 4 needles.   

Needles are the must-have tool for almost any kind of beadwork. Finding the right needle is vitally important, since the right or wrong needle can make or break a project. There are a few key things to consider when shopping for needles: size, length, purpose, and preference.

Size: Needles should be the same size or smaller than the beads you are using. So, if you are beading with 12/0 beads, use a Size 12 or Size 13 needle.

Length: Sharps are short, measuring about 1 1/8” in length (remember: sharp-short, sh-sh). Beading needles are longer, measuring about 2”. Beading needles are thinner and more likely to bend. Some beaders love this; some hate it.

Purpose: We recommend beading needles for peyote, loomwork, and beading ropes, since the additional length makes it easier to grasp the needle. If you’re beading on leather, you want a glovers needles. Sharps are good for applique and flat stitch.

Preference: Of course, it all comes down to you, the beader, and what you’re comfortable with. Do what you know and what works for you. We make recommendations based on our experience and from listening to our customers.*

*We have witnessed some heated debates on beading needles vs. sharps needles. We may have participated in said heated debate. Perhaps we started it. We’re not telling.
