Dinosaur Designs

Resin has never looked so delicious — and it's all thanks to this much-loved Aussie design label.

Dinosaur Designs began in 1985 as a stall in Sydney's Paddington Markets. Since its humble beginnings, it has gone on to open stores in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane as well as New York and London.

Over the years, the independent designer has gained a loyal following thanks to its colourful, chunky and bold jewellery and homewares that remain instantly recognisable in the market. Everything Dinosaur Designs produces is made in Australia using sustainably and responsibly sourced materials like resin, brass, pearls, leather and, most recently, clay.

In Brisbane, based on the corner of James and Arthur Street, you'll find a bricks-and-mortar boutique for the artistic brand, which is open seven days and stocks all of the latest collections.

A second store can also be found at the Wintergarden in the CBD.
