i wanted something a little bit steam punk-y as i want to work my belly dance costume into my halloween costume and the theme my husband wants this year is steam punk.

i used the corduroy i have stashed for my halloween costume (it'll be a under bust corset, spats and a hat) to make a basic rounded scarf.

then i got out my chains. i used a antiqued silver chain, a smaller sterling chain, a tiny antiqued gold chain, and a tiny silver chain.

I pinned the scarf on my handy duct tape dress form and started pinning the chains to the scarf. I did it layer by layer, and then i joined the chains together.
i made 3 jingly dangles out of extra chain, tiny metal coins, heart charms and some scrapbooking chandelier charms i got at the dollar store

then i sewed the chains to the scarf, adding little heart charms to cover most of the messy messy stitching.

then i had to run off to my belly dance class.
so i waited till i got home to take pictures


living with an inferno doesn't mean it has to swallow you whole, you just have to know when to feed the flames.
