This satin ribbon handfasting cord measures 6 1/2 feet long and is 1 1/2 inches wide. I have added a silver Celtic knot (#3) but I can add a charm of your choice to make these ribbons your own.
This is a lovely combination of royal blue, white, purple and emerald green. The photos don't do it justice.
The color of the sky and ocean, it’s not surprising that blue means serenity and peace. If you want to evoke a more peaceful, dreamy mood, opt for a lighter shade. If you wish to add a note of tradition and loyalty, choose a royal blue or navy.
White, a unique color stands for simplicity, cleanliness, purity, coolness, positivity, humility, perfection, and freshness. It is a colour typically found in weddings as it also symbolizes truth and wholeness.
Purple is the colour of dreams, wishes and whimsy. It encourages peace of mind and helps calm the brain and helps to gather focus. Purple gives love with kindness, enthusiasm and understanding.
Green is the color of growth, balance, and the natural world. In many cultures, it also represents fertility. Whether you are working with a jewel-toned emerald or a light spring green, all shades are calming. Shades with a little bit of blue are extra soothing.
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.
