The Nyonya Kebaya 2

This is a closer look at the beaded slippers from the previous post.
.
the shape of the slipper and the design is drawn on canvas which is cut before beading. tiny glass beads are used.
.
if this one looks like english embroidery, you are right.
some of the nyonya bead patterns were inspired by european embroidery.
