Oh, and I was (finally) able to do a little research.

The Indian Pea (aka bean) Mystery is on Tom Mullica's DVD Vol. 2
It is published with Tic Tacs, on Tomas Medina's Geek Magic
It is in Marvin Gardner's Encyclopedia of Impromptu Magic in two places. Under "Beans" it references John's Ramsay's trick and pamphlet (discussed above) and then it also reviews the technique more throroughly under the section on "buttons", item number 4.

I cannot find it in the New Invocation or in the Compleat Invocation Vol. 1 & 2 listed as the Wrath of Renfield or under Docc Hilford (although I do remember seeing some presentation that utilized Renfield in those tomes, I am just not sure it was the bean trick).

Wayne Houchen has his variation, performed by Mr. Angel. Which utilizes thread. Mr. Houchen communicated to me that this will be released to the magic community sometime next year when his contract with Criss runs out.

I have used the "Needle from eye to eye" from the Swami Mantra for about 8 years now with no ill effects.

The bars must be proper and your hands clean. Keep this sanitary and I really don't see how any harm could come from it, but please, don't take it from me.
