Fairy Door Knobs

Hi everyone. This is my first post. I have a plus and I am self taught illustrator. Recently in the Facebook Glowforge page, they posted a video on fairy door knobs. I am determined to learn how to do this as I create fairy doors. :sos: lol. Can someone explain to me as best they can how to create this? Thank you

As near as I can tell, I believe that maker designed their own vectors and engraved them on tiny wooden balls. Looks like they cut a jig to hold the balls upright. The backplates appear to just be cut/engraved sheet. They cast their originals silicone/resin for multiple copies, apparently. Gold model paint works well on wood.
