I highly recommend using the liquid etching solution, not the cream. It is so much easier to use especially if your bead is not smooth.
All the best !

Looking at the size of the piece I think not using a kiln might be a problem, you should let it sit in a hot kiln for a least 30 minutes before you ramp it down slowly.

You can't encase a bead with frit, it just won't work. I go from one side of the bead to the other in one go, making sure each time you go around you slightly over lap the previous bit.
