WOULD ANYONE HAPPEN TO KNOW HOW TO USE THE GOLD BALL DRAGEES, TO INSERT INTO THE PURSE TAGS? HOW DO YOU GET THEM TO STICK TOGETHER AND DRY?

Maybe isomalt but I don't know if that would be brittle. Have you considered using a gum paste in a bead mold then painting them with gold luster dust? Just a thought.

Not sure what you mean by "purse tags" but I use Piping Gel to secure dragees(cachous) I use the end of a tiny paintbrush and make a slight indent (not too big - but enough just to stop the damn things rolling everywhere!!LOL) pop a smidge of piping gel in the cavity and use your tweezers to stick that little sucker in the hole. I've found the tweezers with the right-angle bend at the end - the easiest for vertical placement....... no matter which way you do it you will end up having to vacuum up the half jar that will find their way to your floor.
