“Every hot chick needs a hot car, and Tweety is no exception. But to celebrate the launch of Tweety Fine Jewelry and to help out some grateful kids, we’re auctioning off Tweety’s own completely custom one-of-a-kind hardtop VW Bug. So here’s your chance to make your bid to travel in style…Tweety style.” (Source)
Here a few pieces from the collection; I think that Robert Emerson Clampett would be proud.
“We chose to give the proceeds of the Tweety VW Bug auction to Jewelers for Children because it is such a worthwhile organization and truly deserves our support,” noted Arthur D’Annunzio, designer of the Tweety Fine Jewelry collection and CEO of D’Annunzio Group, “With the support of the fine jewelry industry, JFC gives so much to children in need and makes me proud to be a member of this industry.”
