Every Thursday night, guests, island visitors and locals alike are invited to our beachfront BBQ. This weekly event at Coconuts offers an opportunity to mingle, savor Caribbean cuisine and enjoy Nevis culture.
Each week, guests have the opportunity to meet local artists and shop owners at our popular Thursday Beach BBQ. These talented Nevisians include crafter Deborah, stone art carver Marvin and shop owner Millie.
This week, we would like to introduce you to Yvonne Rogers. Iona, as she likes to be called, is the owner of Rogers Souvenir & Craft in St. George’s Parish on Nevis.
She has been crafting on Nevis for 15 years. Iona uses local materials to create beautiful pieces of jewelry. Her work, which has been recognized in local media, includes unique necklaces and earrings created with items such as coconuts, seeds, sea shells and wood found on Nevis.
Iona learned to make jewelry from her family and while she was at school. She loves sharing the unspoiled beauty of Nevis through her craft and extending the island’s hospitality to visitors.
We invite you to stop by and meet Iona along with the other Nevis craft vendors at our Thursday night Beach BBQ.
