Review: 'Tree Of Life' by Venus Island


"I've got a fab product to share with you today from the fantastic UK jewelry brand, Venus Island!"



I recently had the opportunity to chat with the lovely Vanessa from Venus Island and she kindly sent me these beautiful solid wood earrings to review. 


 Venus Island specialise in African and Caribbean handcrafted jewelry and their wooden collection of pieces instantly caught my eye.  I am a huge fan of natural wood earrings and I already have quite a few pairs in my collection to prove it...  

These dark oak beauties are called ‘Tree Of Life’ and the design incorporates a detailed carved tree design - they are absolutely gorgeous.   


The earrings arrived beautifully packaged and would make the perfect gift for a birthday or even Mothers Day which is fast approaching.


The earrings have a traditional hook through fastening which keeps the beautifully dangly earrings in place all day long.   They are incredibly lightweight and do not pull on the earlobes whatsoever.

I love the way that these have been designed to make the most out of the dangling design,  adding beautiful bead work underneath the hook fastening which compliments the design of these earrings beautifully and also makes them a little longer. 


 I think these earrings work perfectly with my go to protective styles of choice which are head wraps and textured wigs) which I live in throughout the winter months – but let’s face it, I pretty much live in these protective styles during the summer months as it just so easy and fuss free.   

These earrings compliment wardrobes of every season very well.   I like to accessorise my look with statement earrings and bold lipstick keeping the rest of my makeup pretty subtle.

 I have been wearing the Tree of Life earrings for a few weeks now and I can report that they are very sturdy and don’t look overly worn at all, in fact they still look brand new – I think the slightly lacquered finish helps with that. 


Head wrap - check!
Statement lip - check!
Awesome earrings - check check check!

I have a real thing for natural wood jewelry at the moment so I am very happy to have found a UK based company to purchase from at a very affordable price.

These gorgeous Venus Island earrings can be purchased online for just £9.50 and I'm pleased to advise that international shipping is available!




There are many other designs available including necklaces, car pendants and a gorgeous mens collection.


The Tree Of Life design really do compliment my 'fro!
