This handfasting cord is made with the softest satin ribbon in shades of blue and white. It measures 6 feet long and 1 1/2 inches wide. I have added a Scottish thistle charm (#15), but you may choose any charm from the charts.
Blue is the colour of trust and loyalty. It has a calming effect that makes us feel confident and secure.
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.
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.
