i'd rather string individually
I purchased these needles along with a bead spinner. I was SO excited to use it and save myself SO MUCH time and frustration. These needles are more frustrating than beading individually. The needles do what they are supposed to quite well, HOWEVER, a standard size 10/0 seed bead (the VAST majority of them) will not fit past the eye. I tried threading it and then "wasting" my needle by clamping the end down with pliers, and that didn't work either. I had probably a hundred beads on a strand multiple times and had to apply a lot of pressure to get them past the eye on the needle..... and all but maybe 10 or 15 beads broke. I have seen a different type of needle that is thinner and the whole thing is an eye, I'd like to see if that would work. If this is NOT intended for size 10/0 beads, then the description needs to say so.
