Two Ideas come to mind;
1)They have these rubber mat type hand grips used for getting stuck jars open. Grab the bead in the fold near the edge. This leaves a tunnel for the bur tool to go in on the back of the bead.

2)When I was working on my car breaks I put two inches of fuel line hose on my needle nose vice grips to pinch the break line without damaging it. I think the same would work over needle nose pliers or hemostats.

Ok 3 ideas
3) Heat shrink over the hemostats JHamilton pictured would give it grip on wet beads, have a pocket for the bulge of the bead and lock enough to hold it still.
We have to take care of ourselves so we can take care of each other.
