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.

Shopping with friends while on vacation and found this new and very interesting new shoppe. We all found something that we were tickled with including gold handled appetizer knifes, holiday crackers and two of us came out with tattoos! The decor is fun and inviting too.

My wife and I wanted to do something unique for our 20th wedding anniversary gifts. We went to IB because we loved their work. We had a design in mind and they would not do it. I am glad they took the time to tell us what the could do that would be even more unique and special. They modified... More

Whether I am wearing my ball and link necklace or Chaney, I always receive compliments on my beautiful and unique style jewelry. We don't get to St Croix that often so I follow them on... More

LOVE the designs by island boy. I live on-island part time and always check out this store. On my last visit I purchased three Circle of Life bracelets for me and my sister's. They will be Christmas gifts for them as a momento of their visit with to St. Croix. Quality and design is wonderful. The service is excellent.

I love the pieces I got from ib designs. They are a little more expensive than Crucian Gold which I'm not sure why since they are equal in quality and materials. This shop is VERY small and we had to wait outside for 5 or 6 people to leave before we could even get close to the jewelry displays. The... More
