Bead on a Bottle Shoulder

I'm having a wee problem creating the bead on the shoulder of a bottle correctly. I'm able to create it, but at the top end it doesn't follow the profile I want. I have attached the model of the shoulder below in a zip file. Basically there is going to be engraving on a surface which is offset 0.5mm, then there is a bead running around this surface (circle) which is blended into the normal profile surface of the bottle and the offset engraving surface and which will be 0.9mm above bottle surface. Hope everyone can follow so far. I have used a surface sweep and it has created the bead but at the top end I've a sketch of where the beed should run through but it runs a bit below where it should. Is there anything I can do to get this correct?? Is the surface sweep the best option to use??
