Audrey enjoys creating delights in products that surprises people.

Bead by Bit is a new method of producing beading canvas for Peranakan beadwork to enable beading on 3D forms that is previously not achievable with traditional cloth canvas. Using 3D printing technology and algorithmic software, the grid can be customised to suit different bead sizes yet retain the densely beaded Peranakan aesthetic on various forms. By readapting beading to a contemporary context, it evolves the craft to increase its relevance and sustainability in today’s digital world.
