We have been to St. John a few times, I always regret not buying from here. I finally made the purchase! Of course, it wasn't in stock. So they shipped it to me. It arrived and I love my bracelet. Fits perfectly!

Found a lovely little shop in St John at the Wharf-Side Village called the Bamboo Studio. Its a several minute walk from the ferry slip for St Thomas. They specialize in unique hand made jewelry and I believe have the best selection of "hook bracelets" in the USVI. The staff is extremely knowledgeable & very low key ( no sales pressure at all ); and will spend as much time as necessary detailing their merchandise and explaining the significance of the design. They also offer custom engraved charms / pendants that have a classic military flare. After looking a several dozen pieces, my daughter came away with a lovely silver hook bracelet with a matted finish & gold accent that she absolutely loves. When we looked for similar items back in St Thomas, we could not find anything that had the same quality, design flare, and price as those found at Bamboo Studio in St John.

While we waited for the ferry ride back to St. Thomas, we wandered through the Wharfside Village and stumbled upon this great little shop. My wife selected a very nice 'hook bracelet' that quickly became one of her favorite peices of jewelry - she now wears it everywhere! They have a quaint little studio where all the jewelry is hand made, with a viewing window to watch them work. The staff were very informative and helpful without being pushy. It was a grwt shopping experience. We'll be back again on our next trip!

Came upon Bamboo last night on my way to the Waterfront Bistro for dinner. So glad I did! The 3 ladies working were so kind and helpful. I am always fascinated on learning people's adventures of leaving the states to live on St. John's. So it was so refreshing when they shared thier stories with me when I asked. I purchased a simple "free form island pendant" and am so pleased! When I returned home today, my daughters kept telling me how much they loved my "circle" necklace. I wish I had time to go back to the store but I may purchase earings to match online instead. So glad to have this option! And I think it is fabulous that they use recycled metals! Thank you again!

Many vacation locations (including St. John) have jewelry at great prices. So if you like gems, diamonds, sapphires, and the like, you will find great vaule here. However for single-female-me, I am buying jewelry primarily for myself. Translation: Even a $1000 diamond ring for 1/2 that price is still about $400 more than I will spend on myself. At Bamboo Studio, I loved every piece of jewelry better than the one before! The pieces were handmade; some created for tourists, some spiritual. During the week that I was there, I shopped there 4 times. I saw something different every time I did! Finally selected 2 necklaces and my most recent "fav" bracelet: multi strands of brown pearl beads held together with a crocheted lace and button closure. Everyone wants to know where I got it; I say bamboo on St. John and their response is, "yea, bet it cost a fortune!" The best part? it was $9.00!
