I got the belt mounts attached in time to wear the belt for this coming weekend. I'm so excited! This will be the first time I've worn the outfit completely finished and with the new belt.

The original Baden Baden Belt has alternating lions between the letter As, but I'm keeping it simple with just the enameled buckle and chape and enameled mounts.

I'll be doing a How I Did It post for those on Facebook who are asking. I must confess that it didn't go at all according to plan, and my ideas for attaching needed to be re-thought.

In the end, it all came together well and I'm looking forward to sharing photos with the people who made the castings, Gothic Cast Accessories and the Mervi Pasanen, from Swan River Crafts who made the tablet woven silk belt.
