In one of Lndy Smiths books, Celebrate with A cake, on page 95, she says to stick the pearls on the third-length wires using jewel glue, leave to dry in a horizontal position.

How do you stich the wire throught the dragee? And what is and were can you buy jewel glue?

Any help will be appreciated.

If you look in the "equipment" section, she is using real plastic pearls, not dragees. So, she's using the type of glue that you get in craft stores to glue plastic jewels onto stuff.

Thanks for the clarification. I would have thought it would be eatable.

You may be able to use the similar wedding pearl picks available in the wedding section of craft stores, and skip the whole gluing step.

You could make fondant balls and put them on wires, and when they're dry, paint them with luster dust. But you still wouldn't get to eat them because of the wire.
