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.
