Large hammers pounding in spikes to hold track. Sparks flying. Chain tied to who-knows-what, hauling things to and fro. Heck, I haven’t even watched “Hell on Wheels” so don’t even have images from that rattling around the back of my brain.
Anyway. Railroad Spikes.
The spikes are a Jet / Vitrail colorway, and the color is not necessarily aligned with the bead hole. Nor did I try to make a “right” side to the necklace. I just picked up the beads onto the needle. Happenstance is going on.
The crystals are a very pretty black diamond aurora borealis. They are slightly smaller than the ones used in Coppernicus.
I didn’t have as many spikes either, so this necklace is a bit shorter.
Another successful foray into doing something completely different.
