Jewellery And Homewares Inspired By Riverstones

The smooth and rocky forms found on the riverbeds have inspired Dinosaur Designs’ latest collection of jewellery and homewares, Riverstone.


Reflecting the Australian landscape and the nature that surrounds us, Dinosaur Designs have always created products with a raw and natural variation. The feeling, uniqueness and individualism of a river or beach pebble has inspired its latest collection, Riverstone.

Creative Director, Stephen Ormandy explains, “the uniqueness of every pebble is a treasure, and you’ll never find two of the same pebbles ever.” Using this simple concept as the narrative for the collection, each product within the collection is not only beautiful; it is also amorphous and distinctive. Each Dinosaur Design collection is based on a certain natural palette, but for Riverstone, it has been elevated to suit a contemporary context.

For its latest collection, Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy revisited their first pebble necklace from a 1980’s original Dinosaur Design, as they wanted to capture that nostalgic feeling through this collection. “We wanted to mimic the tactility of natural curves with resin in order to evoke a reminiscent feeling of a smooth pebble in your hand,” Stephen goes on to say.

The tactile nature of all Dinosaur Design products is one of the reasons why it is loved throughout the industry. By manufacturing and designing locally, the brand can control its own processes. “We are not manufacturing to make money, because we work vertically. We can explore and try new things with more versatility and dynamism,” Stephen says when asked about the introduction of handbags to Dinosaur Designs’ extensive product portfolio. The rigorous process of investigating the materiality and form of handbags ensured that Louise and Stephen achieved a bag design that is unlike the rest, but still represents the brand, its philosophy and captures the essence of Riverstone.
