This was my second visit to Water Candy and again the artist, Barbara, didn't disappoint my husband and I. I would rather purchase a memory of St Thomas that incorporates quality and beauty made by an artisan that I have personally met than a T shirt manufactured in another country. Each year Barbara has a new design in jewelry to... More

My friend brought me to Water Candy on a recent visit to St. Thomas, after showing me some purchases she had made. What a delightful shop. So many beautiful things to choose from and highly affordable for the quality of the work the artist, Barbara does. Hardest part of the visit was making the selections, too many items to choose...

Each piece of jewlery and home decoration is a one of a kind and so cute and original. The time and pride Barbara puts into every piece is so evident, and the prices are very reasonable. This is a great place to pick up an original gift for your friends and family back home! You may have some difficulty finding... More

This is a jewelry store with some other assorted things like seashell candles and paper lamps run by the artist. Loved her jewelry and other crafts and she was very friendly and helpful.

Water Candy is located at Tillet Gardens near Tutu. That sounds easy enough though it took us a bit to find it. Look for the graffitied wall and turn in there and park. We weren't sure we were in the right place until we were standing in the middle of Tillet Gardens, a lovely hideaway artist community. Cool areas to... More

I have just returned to Scotland after a vacation on St. Thomas. I dropped into Water Candy studio, Tillet Gardens, near Tutu and what a surprise I got. I was welcomed by Barbara the owner and left to browse at my leisure (no sales pressure). Her variety of work is incredible, she is so creative. I bought some pieces of... More

We visited the shop one afternoon and LOVED all the things we found. While we were not able to purchase as much as we wanted (over packed and didn't have room or weight left to bring anything back), we did find a beautiful necklace and a cute magnet for our kids. The tilted wine glasses and napkin holders were awesome!... More
