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.

As anybody from St Croix understands, Chaney is unique. I was lucky to find the perfect piece with a flower by the fort at Fort Christiansted. I brought it to IB to get evaluated to see if I could set it in a bezel setting or not. I've been to St Croix many times and purchased jewelry from a many... More

ib designs has a beautiful collection of custom design braclets, necklaces and earrings in both silver and gold and a combination of both.. As a family we have bought many desiner pieces. It's now a tradition that when a new member of the family comes to St. Croix we go to ib designs. You will not be disapointed!

The jewelry at i.b. designs is absolutely gorgeous and all hand made. The couple that owns it are great and can accommodate any request. I have acquired many pieces and love them all! They also are available online and will ship anywhere which is great for gift giving.
