Small unassuming studio in Speightstown. Lovely jewellery. We talked with the designer and owner Ichia. at length. V nice and approachable. No strong sell. V chilled. What we liked is that each piece is individual. Pair of earrings bought - lovely and quite unique. Well worth a visit.

What a very special find this studio was. I was so glad I made the effort to pay a visit....which became two visits! I had sat on some birthday money from my mother for two months, trying to find a nice piece of jewlery. I found nothing at home or trawling the web that appealed, it all looks the same,... More

I saw these jewelry designs in the Barbados Magazine the In and Outs, in the Island lifestyle section. I completely fell in love with the open necklace design and visited her stowre in Speightstown. Ichia was really helpful. I tried on all the necklaces, however the one I really loved just did not hang correctly due to my boobs. Lol.... More

A truly amazing designer who creates beautiful pieces of jewellery! I have had many positive comments regarding my necklace and bangle! I look forward to adding to my Tiyi collection during our next visit to Barbados! And yes the special bags do prevent tarnishing!

I spent only a few minutes visiting with this interesting woman, and I knew she was passionate about her life, her work, and her art. The talent this woman releases in her work is very unique in a world filled with cheapness and imitation. You will never find anyone or anything like this little shop.

We've just had the most wonderful afternoon visit with Ichia and her art. We had visited a few years ago and were sure to make a return trip on this holiday. Again we were charmed by the art, its lovely presentation, and by the artist. Visiting Tiyi By Design is a "must" for a Bajan vacation. We can't wait to... More

Yes you can go to Cave Sheppard or any other discount store and find a painting/sketch/picture that may look similar but you would be missing so much of what Barbados is really all about. The local artist's showcased here offer an inner look into what makes Barbados beautiful to them. Do yourself a favour and take 15 minutes out of... More

I'd seen the shop referenced in some hotel reviews and thought we would visit. Limited range of handmade silver/copper designs and jewellery. My wife bought a nice pair of silver ear rings for around £80. Worth a browse if you're in speightstown.
