Taste for Travel’s

Olivier’s jewellery instantly dress up the simplest of outfits, turning day wear into party wear. A shop seemed like the logical next step.

- Resin jewellery will help you travel light and look glamorous.
- Prices start from $A39.95.
The gum leaf collection of Australian resin jewellery is inspired by the beauty of our continent’s landscape, parts of which are densely populated with gum trees. Slender gum leaves have a unique beauty yet they and the tree are tough enough to withstand the harsh extremes of Australia’s climate. Resin jewellery is tough too, with the durable resin coating able to withstand quite a bit of throwing around. Gum trees have a special place in Australia’s ancient indigenous culture and modern folklore. Necklaces, bracelets and earrings in stock now.
The Aboriginal Art Range is drawn from actual paintings by artist Sarah White from the Central Australia Arts Collective. 10% of royalties go to the collective. Australia’s indigenous art often has a mostly bird’s eye or imagined ariel perspective. Concentric circles, which are a key component of the Central Australia art style, usually represent a group of people or site or place, a campsite or a water/rockhole. These are places of great significance. Resin cuffs, necklaces and earrings in stock now.
Modern Mondrian is inspired by the 20th Century Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. His most famous works included painting grids of vertical and horizontal black lines and using primary colours. Fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent also drew inspiration from Mondrian, producing his famous block grid shift dresses, one of the most iconic fashion trends of the 1960s. Now these geometrical designs are getting an ultra modern makeover. Resin cuffs and necklaces in stock now.
Silver leaf is dramatically designed and coloured to mirror inky depths of our oceans, swirling clouds and dramatic landscapes of our diverse planet, as if seen from space, for the Love My World range. If you travel the globe, this range will match your adventurous spirit. It also reminds me to take good care of our beautiful, yet increasingly fragile planet, and sparks memories of places I’ve visited and yearn to go. Resin necklaces, earrings, cocktail ring in stock now.
The Paris Map range is inspired by a centuries-old map of the City of Love, cleverly reproduced onto the surface. Like all items, it makes a big statement but is effortlessly light to wear. The band of the Resin Ring: Gold Paris Map is adjustable, and the ring complements the rectangular earrings made of gold leaf and resin, which also feature part of the map. Historic maps of Paris have even shown what the site was believed to have looked like in A.D. 360, when it was a tiny village on the banks of the River Seine! Resin rings and earrings in stock now.

About Mo Resin
“I want to keep my business the artistic way”
French-born Olivier is inspired by red and ochre desert colours, native gum leaves and indigenous cultures of Australia, but also draws inspiration from the land of his birth. His very contemporary collections have emotional depth as well as artistic presence. He makes everything himself and has no thoughts of mass production. Olivier is passionate about what he does. It’s a joy to talk to him about his work. Each piece of resin jewellery is engraved with the MO initials confirming their handmade originality.
“I want to know my hands have shaped all my work,” says Olivier. “You’re never as good as when you’re doing something you love, rather than doing something you are obliged to do. I want to keep my business the artistic way.”
And that’s the way I like it too.
