P&O Cruises introduces jewellery by Barbados designer, Ichia Tiyi on board Arvia for the Caribbean season

P&O Cruises (Logo) P&O Cruises will introduce a range of jewellery by local Bajan silversmith and art jeweller, Ichia Tiyi on Arvia from December.

The range will be sold in the shops on board during Arvia’s 2023/2024 Caribbean season and will include a selection of silver cuffs, bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings. Ichia will also join the ship each week in Barbados to host a talk about her range.

Earlier this year, Ichia was commissioned to design a unique gold cuff and necklace for Arvia’s godmother, Nicole Scherzinger which was presented to the multi award-winning performer when the ship was officially named in Barbados in March 2023.

Ichia has been designing jewellery since 1993 by using local Barbados materials to create unique pieces which emphasise a sophisticated primal energy, rooted in traditional craftsmanship.

In 2001 she entered the prestigious Commonwealth Arts and Craft competition and won an award for the Caribbean region. The award gave her the opportunity to travel to Ghana, West Africa, where she studied Metal Product Design at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. In 2011, Ichia also won the Design Caribbean award for Best Innovation and Creativity.

Ichia said, ‘It is so exciting that P&O Cruises guests will have the opportunity to purchase my jewellery on board Arvia. Every piece is handmade in Barbados and each purchase will be the perfect way to remember a holiday on our beautiful island.’
