Share the Island Style - the casual and stress free life of the Caribbean Islands and the rich culture and traditions.
After working in the US Virgin Islands real estate market for the past 15 years, this self-taught jewelry designer decided to celebrate her 60th birthday in an interesting way - realizing her dreams of becoming an entrepreneur and launching artstudio3000 on January 9, 2013.
Originally from the East Coast, Justine spent her summers camping on the beach with her family at Hammonasset State Park in Connecticut and those lazy days at the beach will always be cherished.
Later in life after a hectic career she found her “beach dreams” materialize in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. Justine began making beach sand and sea shell jewelry for friends and family. Soon it became apparent that nearly everyone she knew had a special memory or exciting adventure that took place on the many Caribbean Islands that she and her husband John have traveled to over their 28 years of Island living.
The love of the sea and it’s rhythms are incorporated into every piece. Call 340.690.6900 for an appointment to visit artstudio3000

All of the jewelry you will find on our site is made with authentic beach found sea glass, shells, coral and stones that were worn smooth by the natural forces of the sea. My husband John and I enjoy walking on the beaches of all of the Caribbean Islands we visit – either by air or by sea. We have spent over 25 years living on the island of St. Thomas and consider the Virgin Islands – both US and British our Playground in Paradise.
Our mission is to “honor” our found sea treasures in the jewelry we create. Our jewelry is handmade from start to finish.
