ib designs creates artful, expressive, feel good jewelry

Here on St. Croix we are fortunate to be surrounded by astounding beauty, from the azure waters, the bounty of tropical plants and wild life, to the colorful and eccentric variety of islanders, both native and transplanted. There is no shortage of inspiration for the artists who call St. Croix their home. And just as the natural beauty of St. Croix is diverse, so too is the variety of art venues to explore.

Art Thursday is an art lovers dream; a night out in Christiansted to explore art galleries, jewelry studios, and fine retail stores. Delve into the fascinating works of local artists while strolling the charming streets of Christiansted and enjoying a glass of wine with friends.

"It makes it a bit more appealing and convenient when the gallery down the street is open and featuring an art show you didn't want to miss, along with the other art venues in town," says Therese Trudeau, owner and artist at Maufe Gallery and Crucian Gold. "The galleries and jewelry studios all have the same objective, to get people into Christiansted town in the evening to stroll and view a variety of artists' work."

There are a surprising number of artists and jewelers on St. Croix, all with varying styles. St. Croix artist Maria Henle organized the first series of Art Thursday events in 1999. Since then, the galleries and artisans have grown the monthly art walk to include paintings in oil, watercolor and acrylic, handcrafted jewelry, photography, sculpture, fine carpentry, fabric arts and furniture. The venues participating include Art at the Top Hat, Crucian Gold, Designworks, The Goldworker, Henle Studio, ib designs, Joyia, Love & Light, Marjorie Robbins Gallery, Maufe Gallery, Mitchell Larsen Studio, and Twin City Coffee House.

Stroll the streets of Christiansted and enjoy light refreshments while perusing the art on display and for sale. Bring home a slice of St. Croix with an original work, a token to remind you of the island's natural beauty. Stop into one of Christiansted's fine restaurants for an elegant dinner, or watch the sun set from one of the open-air bars or restaurants on the boardwalk with gorgeous views of the harbor and really take advantage of your night out on the town.

He first started tying sailing knots in precious metals as a hobby in the 1970′s, selling his first jewelry pieces from a handmade mahogany box he carried with him to display and share his budding passion. Now, Nathan and Therese can be found in Crucian Gold on Strand street creating new designs inspired by the history, people, and natural environment of St. Croix. All of the materials they work with come from recycled and eco-friendly sources.
