[Help] Beading on Dress

Hello! I've been sewing for seven years and have decided in the last couple of days to try my hand at beading.

I have this ankle-length black dress which is spaghetti-strapped, a v-neck cut and backless. I've had it for 8 years and have decided that I need to spice it up for a party I am attending on Thursday with some simple beading.

The beads I have bought are the small round kind in metallic colors of copper, silver, purple and blue. What kind of thread do I use? Will my sewing thread work? Does anyone have a link to any picture tutorials for beading on clothes (my dress is a heavy polyester blend) and patterns? I'm thinking a very simple fireworks theme would be nice right along the neckline.

Thank you!
