Lace medallions, embellished with vintage beads on iridescent crimson taffeta, the "Sansa" belt stands out against a backdrop of teal and gold ribbon. Black and gold cord ties on the side. Belt is 29" (73.7cm) long with 24" ties (56cm). The teal and gold ribbon is 2" high (5cm), and the medallion is 6" (15cm) in diameter including beaded trim. Everything is sewn on by hand, never glued, so it can withstand years of abuse.

This is what happens when Game of Thrones plays on the TV in the background while I’m bent over my workbench for hours. I wind up creating a belt inspired by the gorgeous costumes in King’s Landing, then naming it after a character.

The model (that would be me) is wearing the Sansa with the Burgundy & Bronze Belly Dancing Bra (sold separately), which you can view here:

My belts are crafted at a length that can be worn by a variety of sizes and body shapes. Before I list a belt, I try it on multiple models to see how it will fit (my usual models are size 4, size 8, and size 10). Shown here on a size 4.

All Merry Maenad items are made by hand, not machine, in a smoke free home. There's just something therapeutic about sitting at my workbench in the middle of the night with nothing but a needle and embroidery floss. Vintage fabrics and trims are always dry cleaned before I sew them, so there's no musty odor. Metal embellishments are cleaned first too.
