Finished Jewelry Designs From Our Nutcracker Design Kit

Are you ready to make a wish? Tomorrow is our favorite day of the month -  Kit Day - and we will be unboxing our Make-A-Wish Beading Design Challenge Kit. Proceeds from this colorful kit are going to a great cause, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America. Join us for a great jewelry making tutorial. Sara will be opening the kit live on Facebook, revealing the contents, and then making something special. Before the fun tomorrow, check out today's blog. We are showing off finished jewelry from our Nutcracker Design Kit (Sold Out). This cheerful kit was full of festive beads and jolly surprises.

Did you purchase our Nutcracker Design Kit (Sold Out)? This kit was as cheerful and fun as the ballet that inspired it. We added a little mix of dancing sugar plum fairies, triumphant nutcracker soldiers, and holiday flavored beads and findings. We wanted to bring the magic of this holiday tradition to our jewelry collections. We think this kit could make a Grinch smile! Check out the amazing designs our friends and community made with this festive design kit!

Check out our  Design Kits! Each kit is a themed collection of beading supplies. You never know where one of our kits will transport you! We have indulged in mystical purple with our Purple Rain Design Kit. We have caught Cupid's arrows with our Cupid's Kiss kit. We have danced in the fallen leaves of the Harvest Moon. We have relaxed on the lush blue Sea of Crete with our Santorini Dreams kit. We have raced down rain slicked streets with our Neon Nights kit. So many fun adventures. What is our next journey going to be? All of our kits are thoughtfully designed and curated. You are going to love the supplies inside!

Hurry! Our kits are limited in quantity and usually sell out before the end of the month. At the end of each month, we reveal our recent kit on the  Soft Flex Facebook page and YouTube Page. Open your kit when you get it or wait for Sara to reveal the contents and open yours along with us live!

If you'd like to join us in the design challenge next month, buy this kit and challenge yourself to try something new and unexpected. If you are new to beading, this kit comes with findings, beads, wire, and surprises.

Our kits are great for skill building. We want our kits to feel challenging. We want them to be accessible for beginners and advanced designers alike, but we love to throw in elements that may seem difficult to test our beaders skills and make them think out of the box. We think jewelry is great when it is easy. But when you really have to engage your mind and process your materials and tools, we think that your jewelry has the potential to be life changing.

Our kits may be inspired by a colorway or theme, but they are meant to be creative interpretations. Imagination and innovation do not follow the rules. Expect the unexpected.

Supplies are very limited. Don’t miss out!

The fireplace is crackling with warmth and light. Snow is dancing in lazy sheets outside. Brother and sister sit in front of the television. The boy clutches his Nutcracker toy and watches as the courageous champion marches against the Mouse King on the screen. The girl holds a gingerbread soldier and gasps as heroic Clara distracts the rodent villain so the Nutcracker Prince can vanquish him. Their minds race with vivid fantasy. They imagine themselves in the Land of Sweets. The Sugar Plum Fairy hosting a lively recital to entertain them. After the spectacle ends, they are tucked into bed. They drift into slumber. The dancing bell rings of a musician playing the celesta echoes in their dreams.
