Basically a Handfast Ribbon is approximately 6 feet in length but some are longer, some of mine are a little bit shorter.

I make mine from Rayon satin double ribbon (folded in half). I then machine sew the curved thinner ribbon on one side of the ribbon and add on the leaves by hand along with items such as: satin ribbon flowers, jewellery bits, beads of all kinds, Swarovski crystals, Czech crystals, semi-precious gem stones (Tiger Eye, Turquoise, Agate, Iolite and other stones), Fresh Water Pearls, Mother-of-Pearl (beads or shells), wood and metal charms like: Hearts, Crosses, Pentagrams, Angel wings, Celtic symbols, Infinity symbol, Dragons, and more,  Plus a “Tree of Life” charm on each ribbon.

The ribbon is then returned to the folded position so the back of the Handfast Ribbon is plain and smooth and hides all the stitching. I then sew along the open edges and add in tassels at each end (unfortunately at this time, there are  limited ranges of tassel colours and I choose what I think will go best with each ribbon. It is not always possible to get a true match so I go with a neutral colour) and the ribbon is complete.

 

I can easily Customize the ribbons:

Please be aware that reproductions are not always as clear, colour correct or a perfect representation of the original. Keeping this in mind:

The chart is not 100% accurate, but close enough for you to make a choice. I can always send a small sample of each ribbon colour so you can make a more informed decision on your colour scheme.
