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.

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!

I have made several purchases over the years at IB Designs. They are a reputable company. They stand behind their work - and even offered a store credit when one necklace I purchased reacted with my skin (totally not their fault but they gave me a credit anyway). I have had them take a piece of chaney (Dutch china piece)... More
