Crafting for over 19 years, Whealan continues to be motivated by the complexity of the Caribbean's people, beauty, and culture. Being a musician at heart allows life's movements, patterns, and rhythms to play out in his raw organic designs. Whealan's richness of imagination, his creativity, and his material invention allows each piece to express diversity, emotion, and the beauty of life. Ib designs' FEEL GOOD JEWELRY is a salute to the simplicity of life and to the inspiration of creativity. We hope you find something special that makes you feel good. « less

Just returned from St. Croix on March 8. It was our annual couples trip and 2nd year in a row to St. Croix. We girls love to shop and made it to ib designs a couple times. I bought a lovely gold and silver bracelet and just adore it. Great unique pieces. Excellent craftsmanship. Can't wait to go to ib... More

Looking for something that is custom made? This is the place. Price is reasonable and the more you buy, the better the discount. They even have the famous clasp bracelet at one of the better prices. I would guess that since they have a lower overhead, they can give you better deals.

I have several pieces of IB Designs jewelry and I always get compliments on them all! I got my first piece while visiting St. Croix in 2009 and their unique style has kept me coming back ever since! They also have wonderful costumer service. One time I broke a stud of an earring (totally my fault) and they fixed it... More

Jewel Of The Seas docked in Frederiksted on 1/20/14 and we decided to take a shuttle to Christiansted for $16 RT. It was MLK day and my wife had been in contact with the owners on Facebook, she was really looking forward to seeing the shop. As it turned out they were not going to be open because of the... More

All of the 'locals' on the island wear island bracelets. I saw so many different designs on people, and everyone I asked said the best place was ib. When I went, I was looking for a souvenir for my mom and ended up with a two-tone silver and gold infinity design bracelet for her, and a a silver infinity ring... More

This amazing jewelry shop produces hand crafted Caribbean designs with great style and amazing quality. The jewelry and the welcoming energy of Kris, Whealan and the entire ib crew makes for a great visit - and a greater keepsake. Seriously, this is top-notch craftsmanship, the best product in the islands, made by a fantastic shop of people. Worth every visit.

We were on our first trip to St. Croix for Thanksgiving and Jump Up. While waiting for the parade we wandered around looking in the shops and looking at the bracelets the Virgin Islands are known for. My family has traveled to St. Croix before but this was the first trip for my wife and I. She had received a... More

Whether you are 6 or 66 Whaelan's fine hand-crafted sterling bracelets with a touch of 14K gold make a serious statement and wonderful gifts! Of course they create many other 'must have's' in their tireless collection, but I am partial to the hooked bangles. Need some more! Good thing my grown sons know this and can shop the ib designs...

If you are in St Croix you need to go to ib. I visited late March early April and it is a great place. Jewelry is made from the heart and really does make you smile. Chris, Savannah and of course Whelan are the best!!!
