Nick you should be able to get them at any shop that sells beads for sewing, etc. The thing you want to do is bring along a selection of hooks to try out 'the bend.' That's where you get hung up if its not 'round' enough or the hole too small.
If the bead hole is too large, not to worry, easy 'fix.' (Hook size dependent) Take 1 to 3 pound clear leader material and build up a base to slide the beads on. Head cement (the leader material) and you're good to go. You do
want a snug fit.
Edit: Forgot to add. You'll probably have to pinch down the barb first.
