Dinosaur Designs immediately draws you into a new, visual and tactile world that you're not quite sure where to place in your mind. And then you pretty much want to own everything they've ever produced. (I did).
I was lucky to meet Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy who started Dinosaur Designs with Liane Rossler 27 years ago. Not surprisingly, the couple is equally as color- and delightful as their creations.
Dinosaur Designs sells a constantly evolving range of handmade resin and sterling silver jewellery and resin home wares in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and New York.

A trio of design talents—Louise Olsen, Stephen Ormandy and Liane Rossler—founded this Sydney label over three decades ago, and the brand continues to exist at the crossroads of design and art. Eye-catching jewelry and housewares forged from colored resin and crafted into organic forms are the brand's cult hits and unique, conversation-starting gifts. They also produce beautiful pieces in sterling silver, glass, brass and marble.
