Tel: 340 776 6420's insider take:

Interested in taking home a piece of your hotel? Many luxury resorts in the Caribbean—including Sir Richard Branson's exclusive Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands, Caneel Bay in St. John, and Frenchman's Reef in St. Thomas—use wall sconces and table lamps fashioned from raw coral sand and melted glass by Donald Schnell. His studio, one of St. John's most renowned shops, sells similar pieces, as well as carefully sourced ceramics, glass, and tableware from other artists. Of particular interest are Schnell's hanging light fixtures, many of which have unusual carved designs like stars and shells that show through when illuminated.

Open daily 10 am to 7 pm.
