This wondrous gallery in Christiansted, St. Croix is home to the distinctive designs of local artist/metalsmith, Whealan Massicott. 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.

I have purchased several pieces from IB over the years. When I wanted a pair of earrings that they did not have in stock, Whealon made them in just a few days. I love them more because he made them just for me!

My friend discovered IB designs. Several of us banded together and ordered many more pieces as special engraved presents for a special group of women. When I found my cruise ship stopped in St Thomas over Christmas and I could pick up a few more pieces at their gallery there, I was excited. I emailed ahead of time to see... More

I have a few pieces of jewelry made by ib designs. Beautiful pieces and great quality! I had to exchange a piece one time after we got home, and ib did so quickly and without any problem. It's a pleasure to shop there because of the friendly people and service.

Not your average Caribbean duty free jewelry shop - this place has cool items made locally that you'll actually want to keep wearing well beyond your vacation here. Do it.

One of the best pieces of authentic jewelry...as a native, I looked at the local market to compare however what else can compare to an original authentic piece from a native... Promised I would return after visiting the first time!!!!! I will wear with the island pride and know that my piece is from the originator of the infinity pieces...... More

We always visit Ib Design when on island. Ordered an Infinity bracelet for a graduation gift and 2 t-shirts. Easy to order and arrived on time. Just wish I had been in St Croix.
