The NEW Fine Beading Awls feature the same silky cushion grip as the beading crochet hooks.
They are available as mint green or pink.
Use the Fine Beading Awl to:
- reposition a seed bead for easier access to the needle, such as a size 15 seed bead in a tightly beaded bezel
- remove an unwanted bead from the beadwork without pliers or damaging thread by supporting the bead with your nail while pushing the awl steadily into the bead, until it splits open
- remove knots by pushing the fine tip into it, allowing the increased diameter of the awl to expand the knot into a size that can easily be teased open
- when knotting pearls or other beads, place knots precisely where you intend
"Everyone who sees my awl in action during workshops, wants one too! I don't know how I ever beaded without one. My students call me the thread whisperer, thanks to my fine beading awl." Carol Cypher
The new Craft Awl has a dark blue cushion grip and a thicker gauge shaft and a sharp point.
