    Daisy Chick, if Wilma had a necklace like this back in Bedrock, Betty surely would have been jealous. They might have kicked Fred out of the Water Buffalo Lodge too. This necklace is great! Thanks for sharing it.

    Definitely perfect for Wilma. I love the red bead with the Lava. It’s bold and kind of in your face. I kind of like that.

  14. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Boston Lady thank-you for your kind words! Poor Fred. Poor barney now he has to get Betty a necklace!

    Lynn without the red it would have been ho hum it needed that so thank your Eeka for sending me that bead!

    Susan thank-you for your suportive words you are so kind.

    Linda I see what you mean it is a bit in your face isn’t it! Thank-you !

    Daisy Darling! This is the bomb! Or, “off the hook” as my dear friend Boston Lady says. Love, love, love it! I showed it to “Fred” yesterday and he agreed on the bomb factor. 8) Thank you my little friend of friends for creating such a gorgeous necklace for me! ;)

  16. Daisy Chick - Dawn

    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    It didn’t take me long once I got Marth’s lava beads. It just happened! Isn’t amazing how something can just fall in place like that! Oh by the way Thank-you for the beads, coffee and chocolate! There will be a little something coming your way!
