I was really inspired by my recent board game swap to make myself this necklace. I love it so much! The only problem is my cats hear it and think it's a toy.
It's made from houses and hotels from a monopoly set. The ends are some cute train buttons I found.




My favorite part! For the four railroads! The Reading, Pennsylvania, B&O, and Short Line!

They used to not be so perfect. When I found them they were in this ugly teal color that I couldn't stand. I painted them to be that nice charcoal color.

The trains are indeed a great touch  Smiley

Thank you! It was your swap that inspired it!
