Men change ties. Women change jewelry.
So said Wilma Smith as she rifled through her collection of accessories.
Some colorful, others ornate, many of the pieces look like they could be a part of an art exhibit, not just an outfit.
Viewers are no stranger to her bold necklaces; some so bold they’ve been banned from the air by Wilma herself.
“This one catches too much light, I don’t wear it anymore,” she explained.
While accessories are often used to “complete” an outfit, that’s where Wilma starts.
“Sometimes I pick the necklace first and go from there,” she said.
As she signs off the airwaves, Wilma Smith will take with her decades of news experience, her sturdy but sensitive delivery and a style that is uniquely “Wilma.”
As one of the many tributes to her, Fox 8 News has created the photo gallery of her jewelry above.
