If Wilma Went Glam

Remember Wilma Flintstone?

Wilma is the property of Hanna-Barbera Productions
but her heart belongs to Fred

If anyone ever rocked (pardon the pun) a chunky necklace, it was Mrs. F.

So imagine, if you will, what Wilma might choose if she were to go shopping at a modern bead show, looking for something to wear for a fancy evening out (or to spice up the daily chore of walking Dino).

I think, perhaps, that she would fall in love with these purple dyed agate chunks.  I did!  And as a change from working with seed beads, this was big fun (again with the pun -- sorry!)

Paired with hollow filigree pewters, this necklace is much lighter to wear than you might imagine.

Yabba dabba doooo!  (Yes, yes, I did say it.  You had to know I would.)

Gorgeous. I love that agate too, and particularly with those big disc beads. This is a great combo.

Bobbie, I am not much into big and chunky, but this necklace is very pretty and I can see Wilma sporting this one around town.

Fred would be dazzled! A great alternative to Wilma's signature strand of pearls. Your necklace would look fantastic with her red hair and pink lipstick.

Those pewter filigrees are just the right touch with the large stones. I recently went to one of those more formal holiday events and this necklace would have been perfect. Really like the balance and glam of this piece.
