Art Thursday in Christiansted, St. Croix USVI - An Evening of Art Downtown!

Art Thursday in Christiansted is a monthly art event that takes place once a month, “in season”, from November through May on St. Croix. Local art galleries and jewelry stores stay open late for a unique evening shopping and social event on the quaint streets of downtown Christiansted. 

This is such a wonderful event and a good reminder of the incredibly talented and varied artists who live on our island, with many of the stores offering wine, cheese, and other light refreshments while you mingle. It is a perfect excuse to head into town, do a little shopping, meet and chat with local artists and enjoy dinner at one of the island’s fabulous downtown restaurants. My personal favorites when dining downtown are balter, 40 Strand, Zion Modern Kitchen and the new kid on the block, 17/64 (these are the coordinates for the island of St. Croix, in case you were wondering!).

You’ll find FantaSea Jewelry set up in The Alcove at Quin House on Art Thursdays from 5:00pm - 8:00pm. This beautiful space is next door to Zion Modern Kitchen and just a few steps away from Market Square. Even with the new studio space downtown, I couldn’t give up my place in the Alcove! I absolutely adore being in the company of the other artists and makers who set up there - we really are like a little family and show one another love and support - something that is so unique and beautiful about not only our art community but our St. Croix community as a whole! We share, collaborate and build one another up rather than being competitive and breaking others down. This is one of the best things about our island, as it is the people, and their spirits, kindness and generosity, that truly is inspiring and uplifting. 

Some of our Alcove “family” members are Isabelle Picard, Island Contessa, Bottles Reimagined, From the C, Debbie Sun, and Alyssa B. Designs. 

This season, we have two Art Thursday events still remaining on the calendar, April 19 and May 17, 2018. You can check out the full schedule of events where you will find FantaSea Jewelry on our Events Page (updated regularly).

“The light in me honors the light in you.” My yoga teacher often ends our classes with this saying. I loved the intention, but it took me a while to really “get it”. Yoga, mindfulness, and mediation are spoken of so much these days, and with the world, as it is today, I believe we absolutely need these reminders and posited vibes!!

Alternative Engagement Rings and Bridal Jewelry

Alternative engagement rings are all the rage these days. Maybe you have heard the term and not quite understood it. “Alternative” really is defined as “available as another possibility”. I love possibilities! When it comes to a uniquely designed engagement ring… “imagine the possibilities!”

I’ve been doing [custom jewelry design] for quite a long time now, and one of the things I always say to custom clients is, “the possibilities are endless!” And they truly are! It’s a really fun part of my job to ask questions during this process and to offer some suggestions on what a custom ring, designed with their specific story in mind, could look like.
