Peter Finch Basket Maker (BrACKlet)--a Nantucket basket on your wrist
There is nothing that conjures up the image of old world charm like a Nantucket Lightship Basket. Renowned basket weaver Peter Finch has created the most elegant accessory for women and men as well-- the ORIGINAL Nantucket Lightship Basket Bracelet--also known as the BRACKLET ™
A generation of Nantucketers know Mr. Finch from his intensive 3-day Lightship Basket weaving seminars. Now the BRACKLET ™ is offered exclusively by his studio to islanders and mainlanders alike. This incredible piece of heirloom-quality jewelry is woven in the traditional “light weave” manner that has been handed down by local tradesmen from the days when Lightships warned sailors not to stray too close to the rocky shoals off Nantucket.
Each BRACKLET ™ is woven slowly and precisely with imported rattan and capped with legally reclaimed genuine ivory, handcarved to fit your exact size. Local scrimshanders painstakingly engrave and dye each end cap with your own customized text to celebrate your connection to the island. The BRACKLET ™ is then uniquely stamped with the artist’s mark of Peter Finch so you can be guaranteed that your bracelet is authentic and made with the highest of quality standards.
Peter Finch's island studio is open only by appointment; please call him at 508-332-9803 to discuss your custom ordered BRACKLET (tm)
