Vanessa La Rose - Founder & Creative Director
I founded Venus Island back in 2012, with one goal in mind: to provide quality jewellery and carnival accessories inspired by the cultures of Africa & the Caribbean. My love & passion for creativity has meant my pieces have been requested all over the world.
Everything I create is made in-house. I use a graphics package to design whatever is it i want to create, in a language my laser cutting machine can understand. Once cut, each piece is hand finished (painted, glossed, beaded, findings attached etc). Et voila
I offer a custom made service for individuals wanting something unique - just for them. Made the Venus Island way.
I have also just launched my events accessory website for weddings and birthdays etc. Take a look: Love and Lazer
P.S: The name; 'Venus' Island was chosen as it fused my name; 'Vanessa' and the Greek goddess 'Venus' who was known as the Goddess of love and beauty. The 'Island' part was added to represent us as 'Island people'.
