Our name 'designosaur' came from trying to say "design a dinosaur"!

Jacques and I met at university where we studied Product Design. In the beginning Jacques started making children's mirrors at the laser cutting company where he was working. There was one shiny Brachiosaurus which took my fancy, and I held up and suggested that it would look great as a GIANT necklace. I was so excited about it that Jacques made it into the very first designosaur necklace!

I talk very quickly, when we first started to make dinosaur necklaces we were both really excited, and when I get excited I talk even more quickly! Jacques and I were discussing new designs and I tried to say "yeah design-a-dinosaur necklace", in my haste it came out as one word, Jacques looked at me wide eyed and we knew we had just come up with the name designosaur.

Since then Jacques and I have been working together to create a large range of dinosaur necklaces and other laser cut jewellery as well as accessories and most recently socks! We do everything together and make a great team. We have so many ideas - most of the time we talk about nothing but dinosaurs and plastic!

It makes us grin from ear to ear when you love dinosaurs and our designs - designing something big, bright and bold and is one of our main aims.

Thank you for visiting our shop and if you have any questions then send us an Etsy message - we are very friendly.

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

All of our jewellery comes in an embossed designosaur branded gift box, and our enamel pins arrive on colourful designosaur backing cards, all ready to give as a gift to others... or yourself!

We are happy to include a note, please write this in the comments when purchasing.

We never include an invoice as you receive a digital one and we also don't brand the outside of our parcels, to keep gifts under-wraps, even on the doormat!

If you would like your purchase gift wrapped then you can add this at checkout.

Custom and personalised orders

We LOVE doing commissions, if you have something in mind then please send us an Etsy convo with your idea, possible colours or materials, an idea of how large you would want it and if possible an image of what you have in mind (a photo of your inspiration would be great!)

All of our laser cut pieces can be customised, so if you would like a message engraved on the back, or a name on the front, let us know before you purchase and we can send you a quote.

We can't wait to hear what you have planned!

Wholesale availability

Want to stock designosaur in your boutique or online store? Get in touch! Send an email to and we will be able to send across our wholesale booklet with all our latest designs.

Care instructions

So your jewellery is made of acrylic, BUT that doesn't mean it's invincible, want to keep it in the best condition possible? Follow our top tips...

Do put your jewellery away! The best place to store your jewellery is in it's box, this will stop the chain tarnishing and the design collecting dust.

Don't use perfume, moisturiser, sun cream, hairspray or any other chemical where you wear your jewellery.

Don't apply pressure to your jewellery, it will snap!

Don't get your jewellery wet! Ever.

If your jewellery is looking a bit grubby, we're talking fingerprints and a bit of dust then just use a soft cloth to wipe them away.

Sizing details

All of our laser cut pieces are made in house by ourselves, want a longer chain, we can do that! Need a smaller ring size, we can do that!

Just send us an Etsy convo and we can make your dreams come true!
