I have not...I have the slotted beads. They allow you to get the thread way up in there and are great for down eye hooks, but I don't care for them much.

sis you know who Im talking about on this.. and was just wondering about them ... for whatever reason I have it in my feeble brain that they would have a tendency to fall or pop off the hook... :-)
