Looks good.Sounds that like all you need is a threaded steel bar and expoxy resin. drill a hole into the globe and stick give the steel rod a good coating of resin it wont move. Just check you get the the hole in the middle,any doubt about it make the hole slightly bigger in the stick fill with epoxy resin putty,but doubt if you will need to.I fastern all my toppers with resin you cant get them of without smashing the topper or the stick.I usually drill so i get a 4" rod in both the shaft and topper(2"in deep each item).

I just fix the topper 1st then check to see if it sits okay on the stickisif it does just pop the resin on the rest of the rod pop it into the stick job done. in.you shouldne need a cradle, but if you do try using a piece of bone itt can be shaped to fit the stick ,then drill a large hole in the center of the bone it wiil help the globe to sit well and looks good Just remember its fast drying so you cant adjust it after a few mins

i use siver nickel or bone collars always look good it just give a nice quality finish.
