Katana In Question

Hi,this is my first time using this website.I was wondering on how to make the pattern on the katana handle above. The gold ovals are lower into the handle than the rest of the handle, when I try to recreate this in blender it works fine. I just extrude the faces on both sides and it starts to look alright. But when I try to array it, it goes inside of cylinder(handle). How do I make it so that the cylinder also extrudes in. I can do it all individually but I really don't want to. I'm very new to blender(1.5 weeks) so the answer is probably very obvious lol. Thanks!
