Thanks Camillion! They were a ton of fun to do. I used e6000 glue and some packages of mosaic stained glass that I picked up at Hobby Lobby, I like the misc. glass packs because you get such a variety of colors/textures. I also used some flat backed marbles, some safety glass from an old busted up shelf, and a package or two of random mixed glass beads I had laying around in my stash.
For the beaded portions on the blue/white ball, I threaded them on a piece of wire and bent them into the design I wanted - it was VERY fussy attaching the beads to the globe. I ended up using some masking tape and sort of tacked the beaded wire down every 4-5 beads with glue. Once it dried, I went back in with a toothpick and stuck down almost every bead.
I will warn you, that you have to work in pretty small sections when you're working with a sphere, otherwise the pieces tend to slide around a bit. I was happy that I had two globes going at once.
