Handfasting Cords

Offered by: Meretisa

Located in: Clarinda, Iowa


My cords take 2-4 weeks to make. I begin them at either the New or Full Moon and finish them at the next Full Moon. Cords consist of three (or more) cords/ribbons/trims which are braided together in Circle while an Elemental Blessing is chanted, infusing the Cord with blessings and protection.

A Handfasting Cord can be custom made for your Ceremony or chosen from among ones I already have finished- check my store for current availability.

You may wish to have more than one Cord, I have performed Ceremonies using six three-cord Cords and have heard of up to 9 or 12 being used. I have also seen a Ceremony where several Cords were attached to a wooden ring and then tied around the embracing couple one at a time as part of their vows. Items that you may want to incorporate include: prayer box (es) for locks of hair and other love tokens, locket (s) , various meaningful charms/symbols, feathers, gemstones, beads, pendant (s) , pin (s) , etc.

Please have ideas for the colors of the braid and charm (s) or other item (s) to hang from it in mind. I do a blessing of all my cords prior to use. All cords come with a certificate stating how and what was entailed in creation and my signature for authenticity.

Here are some of the meanings attached to the colors:
Red - will, love, vigor, strength, fertility, courage, health, vigor, and passion. Also associated with: Mars, Tuesday, and Scorpio.
Orange - encouragement, adaptability, stimulation, attraction, plenty, kindness, passion, liveliness, kindness, and encouragement. Also associated with: the Sun, Mars, Mercury, Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday.
