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.

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.

We always shop here whenever we're on island!! However, we had a graduation gift to buy for a very stylist 18 year old, so we ordered the Infinity bracelet from their website. And of course we had to have something for ourselves so we ordered 2 of their new ib irie t-shirts!! This jewelry store is a MUST place to... More

When we asked around STX, especially the locals, IB was ALWAYS the first place brought up as THE PLACE to go. Boy were they right. We were so impressed with the service and knowledge of the staff. The jewelry is very high quality, and the prices are right in line! The selection was also very large, both in various sizes... More

I've been coming to STX since 1974 and I can't get enough of it. The folks are great especially at IB. This trip I bought 3 gifts and ordered 2 Chaney necklaces with my friend's authentic Chaney. Whelan's wife took time to evaluate each piece giving me the period and source of the Chaney and recommending which piece would work... More

This little shop is one of my favorite stops when I visit the island. Beautiful jewelry.. and knowing that it is handmade there and not shipping in makes it even more special.

Kris and her husband, by far, have the best shop on the Island to buy jewelry. Stay away from the tourist traps and head to IB's. Their bracelets, charms, necklaces, etc are handmade...silver, silver-gold, rose, all gold. All stunning pieces and the prices are great. Small store and great service. A MUST stop!
