A chatelaine is a decorative belt hook or clasp worn at the waist with a series of chains suspended from it. Each chain is mounted with a useful household appendage.
I crocheted myself a sort of chatelaine necklace with a bag to hold my small crochet supplies, like my tapestry needles, measuring tape and stitch counters, and a scissor holder made of plastic needlepoint canvas covered with an abstract design in matching yarn.
