IDEAS: Not only are TZITZIT worn on the
four corners of a garment, but some people give these as
gifts, hang them on the
wall, attach them to their
car miror, place one on a
key ring, attach one to a ring with business card-sized
Bible
memory verses, use as a Bible
bookmark, hang them in the
office, on the
desk, worn on a
belt loop, on and on the examples go.
The
TZITZIT is desinged to be
seen, and when
seen, it reminds us to do the commandments of G-d.
Your set will be hand made only from

INTRODUCTION:
In
Numbers 15:37-41, Deuteronomy 22:12,  G-d
(YHVH) commanded Moses for the Children of Israel to put
“fringes” on the four corners of their garments. 
The Hebrew words are
TZITZIT
in
Numbers 15:37-41 (which has a numerical value of
600); and 
GEDILIM
in
Deuteronomy 22:12.  Ashkenazi, Sephardic
and Chassidic tassels have 5 knots and 8 chords which equals
13 (600+13=613).  613 is the number of
MITZVOT (commandments) found in the
TORAH (the first 5 books of the
TANAK - Hebrew Bible).  Karaite and Two-House
tassels have 12 strings and are made into "chains" or
"braids."
In the
Ashkenazi style, the long
chord is called the
shamash
(servant) which wraps around all of the other strings. 
The number of
shamash spirals between the knots is also
interesting.  Various Traditions signify one of the Names of
G-d (YHVH) differently.
ASHKENAZI STYLE
:
Ashkenazi
:
7-8-11-13
(LORD is one, from the
Shema)
7-8-11-13

loops with double knots:
7
+
8
=15 (numerical value of YOD and HE)
11
(numerical value of VAV and HE), hence the first three
series of loops represent the personal name of G-d and in the last
series of loops,
13
is the value for the letters ALEPH CHET DALET. 
These numbers altogether represent the letters
YHVH ECHAD
- or "G-d is One" from the
Shema in
Deuteronomy 6:4. 
By
default
I use heavy
white and
navy blue
chords (
size #3 string) in making
these.  
TZITZIYOT are about 14-15" long (about 22-24" for
the
shamash chord) length may vary a little  I can also
make custom colors or any combination (see pic to the
right).

 
 
ATTACHING:
I have had some questions on attaching TZITZIT to a
TALLIT or Belt Loop.
