About PattonGoldsmithing

Sales 87
On Etsy since 2018

We have designed and make our jewelry at our shop at beautiful Mongoose Junction on the island of St. John for 50 years! Time to retire! See you on the beach. I will be posting a few one-of-a kind pieces here that you may have seen in the shop.

We started on St. John in 1973 in Cruz Bay in a tiny 8x11' space, moving to Mongoose Junction in 1978 when Glen Speer built a small shopping center for crafts people.
We have always been inspired by the natural history of St. John and made many items based on shells, birds, and tropical flowers. We love the Virgin Islands National Park! Please support the VINP turtle program, trails program, scholarships on their website or when visiting.
