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.

After buying a bracelet my husband suggested we go back and buy one for each of our 3 adult daughters. He also got me the earrings to match. I love my bracelet and notice one of my daughters has hers on all of the time.

Great jewelry! I have visited several times and they are awesome. Love my IB jewelry. Hand made and each piece is a little different. Stop by if you are in St Croix.

I'm only familiar with the shop in Christiansted, St. Croix. I love their unique, hand made jewelry. There is something very special about it. I think it really comes from the heart & soul of the designer. My husband & I own about 7 pieces and hope to visit again in February next year. Each piece is beautiful, and as... More

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.
