Egyptian inspired dress

For one of my main piece of my senior thesis, I was inspired by the Egyptian  beaded net dress at the Museum of fine arts in Boston. I am creating a woven chain dress using 25+ three foot long strands of Roman chain. I am accompanying this dress with a collar style neckpiece that is created using traditional style Russian filigree. Below is a picture of the Egyptian beaded net dress and a work in progress photo of my designs.

Most of the lines you see on the front of my mannequin are the chain, others are string that will be replaced with chain

Today I am fusing all of these fine silver rings to make the links for more chain.
