This handfasting cord is made with the softest recycled cotton cord in emerald green and cream. It measures 6 feet long and 1 inch wide. This is quite a substantial cord and is much heavier than all of the others.
Green is the colour of calmness and relaxation, a shade in between yellow and blue, symbolizes harmony, freshness, creativity, productivity, safety, and positivity. It also stands for rebirth and rejuvenation, representing spring when plants get back their life after a chilling winter.
The color cream is usually associated with reverence and humility, in addition to offering warmth and comfort. It is a color that encourages new ideas.
I braid with traditional Celtic braiding patterns. I have just purchased a new Celtic knot book and as soon as I can convert the knots to braids I will hopefully come up with new patterns.
I make these cords in a smoke free home. My lovely dog, Lola, is with me constantly and although I endeavour to make these free of her hair there may be some dog hairs floating through the air that find themselves attached to the cords. If you find any, I apologize.
