I have two ideas...

 

1) colored fondant rolled into pearls and tossed in pearl dust

 

2) colored fondant rolled into pearls and tossed in pearl dust of matching color...ive seen blue pearl dust, green pearl dust etc etc in the cake decorating store. 

 

The reason im asking is because the color seems to really pop...thats the effect im going for. Any suggestions are appreciated.

APut the lustre dust in a food bag and roll the balls in the bag.

you add a little cake decorating alcohol to the bag or container along with the lustre dust.

ARight....but do you use luster dust that's the same color or the regular pearl color

You can do either , If I want a particular colour lustre , I just add the white or pearl lustre to some ordinary petal dust . I usually make the balls out of white fondant with a little tylose added, although that isn't necessary .

It isn't a good photo but the beads on the second tier are all make using that method. I started with white and added the lustre and colour with a  small amount of alcohol swished them around and them popped them on some paper towel to dry , The alcohol dries off and you can reuse the dust .

I use a pearl maker so they are all the same size , and then roll them by hand, those ones also have a hole poked through the centre so I could make the cake jewellry with them . I use a french knitter to make the band with.
