The Winter Mystery Class: The Cocoa and Cookies Nutcracker UPDATED

Ruth Schmuff has announced the winter mystery class at Bedecked and Beadazzled.  It will be Kelly Clark's Cocoa and Cookies Nutcracker, a shop exclusive for now.  The details, including the class dates in December 2021 and January-February 2022, are here.

The first lesson gives the nutcracker cute rosy cheeks, and elegant nose, and starts the layers of the background.

Lesson two works on the background more--and gives the nutcracker pink boots!  The checkerboard sections are also being started.

Dots (and Jessicas) are everywhere!   Ruth has included links to help you make a lovely Jessica.

The final lesson has pearl decorated teacups, fat chocolate strawberries, and a darling bow.

Ruth has done videos on messy beading and making bows to help with this section.

If you'd like to see the nutcracker finished, here you go.
