Dinosaur Designs

    From the outside, Dinosaur Designs looks like many of the other cute little shops on Elizabeth Street, but go inside and the jewelers’ entire concept immediately overtakes the senses. Curved lines dominate not just the bracelets and necklaces but the space itself. Maybe it’s the name, but there's a natural, bronze-age elegance to the store and even more intriguing than the vast array of colors that are arranged on the many shelves are the materials: most of the jewelry and even the decorative bowls and vases are made from multi-colored resins. The objects on display feel as if they've been hewn from large chunks of the material, which ranges from intense colors to more muted or translucent tones, and invokes moon rocks or animal bones. These bold designs are all made in Sydney, Australia where owners Louise, Stephen and Liane have operated two sister shops since the late 1980s. With an eye on social and environmental responsibility, spokeswoman Katie Lane said all their materials are sourced locally in Australia so as to reduce their carbon footprint. “We believe in making artful organic products that are handcrafted and designed to last a lifetime,” she said.
