  • Make your own endless supply of beading needles video


    Sarah Canizzaro of Kojima Pearl Company shares her technique of creating beading needles using electrical filament wire from the hardware store. The type Sarah is using is 34 Mag copper wire from www.conwire.com. It's as thin as a hair and can go through the smallest beads.

            Yes, if your needle breaks half way though a project, this would be a perfect emergency fix also.

              That will be handy - pearl needles are hard to find here and way too expensive. On the other hand, I have an endless supply of thin wire.

              Would you mind if I share the link outside the forum?

                  Lady Disdain. Please contact Sarah, if she says OK it's fine with me. I asked her permission to post it here on PG.

                      Yes! I've used this terrific tip several times in exactly this way!! Sarah shared it at one of the early Ruckus's. Thank you LFS and Sarah for sharing here!
