This is the perfect project for both new and experienced weavers. This sweet little dish has a maple base and turned maple rim and measures 3.5″. A carved bone scallop shell is the finishing touch on the inside of the base.

Growing up on Nantucket year-round, I developed an appreciation for the tradition and history of the island. My father, Tim Parsons, has been making Nantucket Lightship Baskets and teaching classes for over 30 years. From a young age, I saw him perfecting the craft of weaving, woodworking, carving ivory and scrimshaw. His talent always inspired me, but not until moving back to the island in 2013 did I discover the new trend of Nantucket Basket Bracelets. I’ve known how to weave for years so creating bracelets came naturally to me. From there, I learned to hand-carve the ivory end caps and scrimshaw. Once I began experimenting with designs, I was hooked. I love how the bracelets represent the Nantucket Basket tradition using the same materials and techniques while being innovative and modern. I’m very proud to continue the Nantucket Basket-making tradition with my Nantucket Bracelets and hope you love them too!
