Dark City 2001


An Australian film set in the dark future it was to be my first beading job on an Australian Production.

Beading using small glass faceted seed beads adorned the bust cups of an empire line dress worn in the nightclub scene by a seductive female singer this dress is but a shimmer in the darkness of this film noir futurist movie. The Cornelli pattern shaped the beads around in curling loop like patterns that have no visible beginning or end.

Cornelli beading is used when you require an area of a garment to be beaded and from a distance the fabric needs to look like the beads have just been thrown onto the fabric. It is a delicate and luscious effect.
