This particular witch's ladder was custom made for one of my customers, but I may make another one as an open listing for my Etsy shoppe just because I think it turned out so stunning! I think the next one will have a pentacle charm at one end and a star of David at the other end.

Handcrafted under the waxing gibbous Moon 95% Full during the planetary hour of Jupiter (Grace of the Sabbats and/or Sabbath Days), SABBAT BLUE FIRE witch's altar ladder and/or handfasting cord is made with 9 glass black crow beads, 22 knots, crescent moon with stars and pentacle charms, and 4 ribbons/yarns, one for each of the Greater Sabbats -

Samhain (Halloween) - witchy black diorite cameo yarn
Imbolg (Candlemas) - light sparkle blue ribbon
Beltaine (Cetsamhain) - handmade spruce silk sari ribbon
Lughnasadh (Lammas) - dark navy blue ribbon

Nine is the diameter of a witch's sacred circle.

There are 22 letters in the magical Hebrew alphabet.

Measuring 60 inches (= 5 feet = five elemental corners of the encircled Pentacle), this extraordinary cord corresponds to the "SECRET WITHIN THE SECRET" of the witch's sacred circle through the magical Hebrew letter Samech (having both a gematria-numerology value of 60 and written in the form of a closed circle).

Each end of the ladder is completed with a small light blue sparkling bow.
