Straits Chinese Beadwork and Embroidery:

A Collector's Guide

by

Ho Wing Meng

New. This book claims to be the first of its kind in that not much was written about the subject before the author, an untiring expert on all things Straits Chinese, decided to share his knowledge with us. As with the other books that Ho has produced there's lots here to spark new interest plus a beautiful collection of colour photographs. Unlike the silver and porcelain that was used by the Straits Chinese, bead and embroidery work was locally produced, rather than in China. 176 pages. The contents include: -

  • Part I - Straits Chinese Beadwork,
  • 1 - The Romance of Ancient Beads,
  • 2 - Straits Chinese Beadwork as a Distinctive Handicraft,
  • 3 - Beads, Threads and Needles,
  • 4 - Techniques of Beading,
  • 5 - Categories of Straits Chinese Beadwork,
  • 6 - Peranakan Beadwork from Indonesia,
  • Part II - Straits Chinese Embrodery,
