Cheerio is a short row shaped necklace that incorporates three kinds of beads, Czech Glass Donuts (aka Cheerios), size 8 seed beads, and matte triangular seed beads. I found the cheerios when I was in Canada last spring and played with them all summer long to find the perfect way to incorporate them into a necklace…. the teens that work with me decided that this design is decidedly tribal, and we love it!

There are also kits available for Cheerio if you don’t feel like shopping for beads : )!

This was the first pattern/kit in an exclusive Bi-Monthly Knit Jewelry Kit Club that Laura is doing with Patternworks.
The Club runs every other month for one year, and has 6 shipments. Designs range from necklaces, and bracelets to earrings and maybe another accessory goodie! Go here to sign up!
