Use the smallest beading needle you can thread, and don't worry at all if it bends because it definitely will. If it gets too bad you can straighten it up gently with flat nose pliers, but very often the curve will actually help anyway and make it easier to access out-of-the-way beads. Please note that you must use a needle; you absolutely cannot manage without one no matter how stiff you think your thread is. You may be able to get away with using an ordinary sewing needle if you are using size 8/0 or larger seeds, but it won't work with size 11/0 and you will need a proper beading needle. You can probably go through them once but the second or third pass will break the bead, and you will often need four or more passes. Sewing needles have larger eyes and this will stop them going through the beads.
