that is fabulous! I use a tinner fishing line with my work and it lasts a lot longer than thread ever did esp. with bugle beads. Only problem is don't stretch it too hard cause it makes the line too tight and can warp a nice straight line!

I used nymo...is that a type of thread?  Lol.  I think that's what it was called.  It was basically the next best thing to silk, according to my professor.  Fishing line sounds like it would work pretty well, too.

that's awesome  Smiley

I've only done simple beading, and I'm fairly certain doing all of that would drive me insane.  The amount of patience required is personally unfathomable.....

dude, this rocks.

you know what it reminds me of?


okay, but totally in a good way. that dress is perfect for a date at a great little italian restaurant with no windows and a waiter named Giueseppe.

you should make a black one & try to work out the bugs so it can stay together, and I agree about the fishing line - I think that's your best bet

The dress looks great!  It has a 20s deco feel to it.  As a beader, I'd be careful about using fishing line for projects I'd like to keep around for awhile.  Its my understanding that the fishing line will disintegrate over time.  If you decide to make another one, maybe use PowerPro (my favorite) or Fireline.
