Needles. I couldn't do bead weaving with out them! They are my constant companion. My little army of helpers. Oh sure, they start out tall and straight....but after being between my fingers for hours at a time, they start to bend and curve just right, into the hole of the next bead.
Sometimes the curve isn't working for a project and a new needle is in order. Sometimes a straight needle isn't working right and you need a little curve.
My small army of needles shown above are bead project veterans. They stay in the field until their eye breaks or they snap in half.
Thank you needle brigade! You are the unsung heroes of bead weaving!
