Found an interesting bead group today. Their website has loads of information on the Peranakan Nyonya and what exites me most -- they BEAD!!!! They make beaded shoes. Their URL is http://peranakan.web1000.com/page4.htm
Wish I could copy paste a picture of the beaded shoes here unfortunately they are restricted. Maybe I will try doing my own and post the results here later. Would you think I'll be successful?
