Handfasting is a beautiful, symbolic marriage ceremony, or ritual, and is believed to span several cultures dating back thousands of years. However, it is widely accepted as being of ancient Celtic origin and a nature-related ritual with a spiritual tradition. The phrase "tying the knot" and the action of shaking someone's hand to agree to something, are probably derived from this action of binding the couples hands together, often with coloured ribbon or cord to symbolize their union of love.
This handfasting cord is braided with Kelly green and royal blue cords and measures 6 1/2 feet in length and is 7/8 inch wide. I have adorned this cord with a Celtic knot (#3), but you may choose any charm for the charts.
I make all of my handfasting cords myself in a smoke free home. I do, however, have a dog and she is with me constantly.
I have other colours of cord available and can customize your handfasting cord to suit you. Just indicate your selection at check out or send me a message.
