To me it looks like the plate and pillar tiers with the beaded "curtains" attached around the outside of the plates.  I don't know where you would get the beads.

Beads can be purchased at any good fabric store that caters to brides.  What I can't understand is the see through separators in between each cake.  The cake is so tall that you'd need a clear central support or stabilizer for sure.

If you used the square Acrylic Separators, you could use a hot knife with a needle-like attachment to bore a little strip of holes along the edge, then wire the beads through them. A LOT OF WORK!!! So charge accordingly! There is actually one for sale on the Cincinnati Craigslist. Search Mirabelle Cakery cake stand, and it should come up.

I made a cake with separators similar to this a while back.  I used the white Wilton columns and separator plates.  I glued by beading to the underside of the separator plate and just made sure each line of beads was the same length (same number of beads).  For blingy beads I would recommend beadandtrim.com, although they can be expensive.

 

Here is a pic of the cake I did:

AWow, cuppadeecakes, how the heck do you get a cake that low to the ground and back up again without breaking your back?

AWOW cupadeecakes. This is AMAZING!! Did u have a support going throughout the cake? Also when i buy the beads, what length should i buy. All i see is 6 ft, 3 ft. I am assuming i will have to cut these myself? When u cut, are there any lose beads?

@Annabakescakes - This cake was actually a dummy cake, but it was based off a real cake that I made (and I couldn't find the picture).  The short answer is that I had to put this together tier by tier at the venue and it would take more than one person.

 

@Manomi - There are supports in each tier, but not a center rod that runs the entire length of the cake.  I used the long white columns with the Wilton separator plates (the ones with the "x" studs on bottom that fit into the columns.  As for the "bling", I actually bought a beaded curtain (it was much cheaper) and cut it into the length I needed.  On the curtain I had, if you cut it between beads, nothing fell off.  IIRC, I did get the beaded curtain at shopwildthings that Leah suggested.  Hope this helps!
