Overview
More
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.

Visited IB in June 2015 and purchased a ring symbolizing 'Strength". Love this ring. Made a point of returning July 2017. Purchased a bracelet, then returned 2 days later for earrings. Love all of the jewelry and the saleswomen are knowledgeable and polite.
