I'm trying to get the right pair of needles to use to make cuffs with so I got these. However, the handle wont go through the beads like the rest of the needle does. What's the right type of needle should I use?

If you still find the beading needles too big. Stitching Needles by Make Market and other cross stitch needles work too but make sure you look at the tips. Cross stitch needles are usually dull and not like sewing needles. I also prefer metal to plastic for some crafts and the stitching ones have bigger holes for string too

@basket random I use a very dull, small metal needle that is easy to slide through the beads; I'm pretty sure you can find one similar to mine at Hobby Lobby in the section of the store devoted to knitting.

i found some very blunt stitching needles in the bead section at hb(how do u feel abt stealing lol) , they work good for me but it can be a little hard to get thick elastic through if u get a small size

some sewing needle packs come with bigger needles for embroidery, and depending on what string your using you can use those. i dont reccomend that though because they are not blunt and hurt to the high heavens to poke yourself with

Just looked up what they're called and it's large eye blunt needles if you need a reference

(tw- real needles and passing out)

im not really sure about the size thing, sorry, but i just wanna add that i would appreciate it if you specified that they where kandi needles? im deathly afraid of normal needles and sometimes thinking ab them too much can make me pass out (im working on it but still) and i wanna make sure it doesnt freak out and cause damage to other people =)
