I wish I had a photo, but I don't since I don't know what to call it to search for a picture. It's when you pipe realllllly thin teeny little strings all in a row to look almost like a lace edge or little wires. Do you know what I mean? I want to learn how to do that, but I don't even know what it's called.

Yah, I think, but not like you normally thing of swags, but instead they are vertical lines.

That's it! Thanks! It looks excruciatingly tedious, but it's insanely beautiful!
