These shorter tapestry needles are just the right thing to sew the end of your bead crochet together! The long eye is big enough for thread sizes up to Micro CLon, and the point is nicely rounded to avoid splitting threads. These could also be used for general stringing with beads that have larger holes like stone rounds and seed beads. John James has been producing needles since 1840, these are manufactured in China to their exacting standards. Emily uses these in her Bead Crochet tube necklaces, to secure the ends together.
