That is truly impressive! I was going to say it might be the thread that causes it to keep breaking, but I know from my jewelry forays that Nymo is supposed to be very good beading thread. It's probably just simply the weight of the thing. Would it work to maybe run the threads through twice, just to give it a little extra strength?

First of all, thanks to you and everyone else for the wonderful compliments! Smiley.  I think it is just the weight of it that causes the breaking, and running the thread through twice isn't an option - I had problems in some of the beads just getting the thread through once.

wow. I thought that was a nudie pic. Don't scare me like that.
Anyway
that dress must be so fun to wear! I love wearing heavy beady things. They feel cooL!

Sorry about the nudie-scare!  Hehe!   Tongue  But, man...I wish I could wear this dress.  It's almost too fragile to handle and I'm not sure I'm storing it in the most appropriate way (it's not completely flat - is in an underbed storage container kind of rolled up width wise), and when I was taking the picture for this it broke along the top front row the main body. (you can see it in the last picture of the dress when it's flat on the carpet - it's on the right side)
