Wind & Waves

Handcrafted Belts

Daily Catch

With handcrafted silver belt buckles from Wind & Waves, you can put your passion for the sea front and center.

Hand poured, silver plated, and Made in the USA, the buckles are created using molds carefully crafted by students from the Rhode Island School of Design. Fishing enthusiasts will appreciate not only the aesthetic
appeal, but the fact that the Sperm Whale, Brook Trout, and Striped Bass buckles are anatomically correct right down to the last gill.

Wind & Waves owes its authenticity and artistry to founder Rick Gauntlett’s interesting background as both a commercial fisherman and the creator of Grillie car ornaments (also a Grommet).

Beneath the silver plated surface, each buckle is constructed using a lightweight, non-lead metal alloy designed to fit comfortably below the waistline. Fishing season or not, these sea creatures add a touch of coastal styling to any outfit.

    Hi, I'm Rick Gauntlett, the maker of Wind & Waves belt buckles.

    I spent years working as a fisherman off the coast of Rhode Island, so these belt buckles literally hit close to home! We take pride in both the quality of our products and the fact that these buckles are hand-poured here in the USA. Thanks for having us on The Grommet and please don't be shy!

    Where we come from Walleye, Bass, Northerns, etc are the big deal in our lakes. Something to consider when making new buckles one day. I really like your site, though.

    (Oh, by the way I am from North Dakota ).
