Dinosaurs doing stuff

Hey! I'm Charlotte, an Australian born designer living in London.
I studied jewellery design in Melbourne and have sold on Etsy ever since.

So...why Dinosaurs? Why not Dinosaurs!

When I moved to London in 2013 I couldn't bring all my tools with me (baggage allowances ugh!) so I started making jewellery from upcycled materials. I made a couple of dinosaur pieces and they always got the most comments and attention at markets so I used the dinosaur designs and made some coasters. A friend purchased some of the coasters and jokingly requested I train the dinosaurs to do martial arts, fetch slippers and be toilet trained. I made some mini books with the dinosaurs doing these things and sent them off. The drawings were a hit and I made them into postcards and gift tags then began drawing more dinosaurs and made alphabet posters. Eventually the dinosaurs took over and I stopped making the original jewellery and focused on my illustrations.
Fast forward to today, I have a shop full of colourful dinosaurs on a wide range of products, including jewellery.


The request that started it all...
'I would like both Dinosaurs to be toilet trained, and proficient in martial arts, cookie making and fetching slippers. I would also like to know their family histories and place of birth. Ideally this would be in the form of a story book, because I only like to read when there are pictures beside the words'

Gift wrapping

Gift wrapping can be selected at checkout for an extra cost. I can wrap items in any of my wrapping paper designs.

Why don't you offer free shipping?

Free shipping wouldn't really be free. The cost of shipping would be added to each items price, so essentially if you were to buy 3 items you would be paying for shipping 3 times, it would just be hidden in the item price.
I believe not offering free shipping means that you as a customer are getting the best value from my shop.
