Open House Projects Jewelry
Open House Projects jewelry is designed by Monika Wyndham in New York. Designs usually start their lives as sketches on paper and are eventually carved in wax somewhere between the Catskills and New York City. New work is often made at odd hours, and sometimes in hotels, on picnic benches, and in cars. Open House jewelry often features moving parts, pieces that fit together in satisfying ways, and design elements with utility like handmade clasps and closures. Our aim is to make design objects with integrity that feel good to wear and are nice to interact with. We respect the inimitable nature of something that is made by hand.
We are glad to work closely with family-owned businesses and skilled jewelers in New York City to take each of our designs from concept to completion. Our pieces are cast in certified recycled metals using the lost wax method

And dievca’s card for Master by NewtonAndTheApple Etsy, below.
dievca was all ready to step into her sequins for champagne and dinner when Master called and said, “Change of Plans — just got on the list, we’re heading to a NYE EDM concert.”
Whoosh~ (house, progressive house, tech house, techno, progressive trance)
Clothing change needed to happen ASAP – those venues get HOT and sweaty…
No full sequin dress or tights.
Master’s clothing change was pretty easy:
dievca blanked out, a bit…then decided to keep it simple:
she was so pumped to wear Master’s Collar in public, comfortably.
A 2019 bonus!
HAPPY and HEALTHY NEW YEAR!
dievca ran into a collection of leather goods from Todd Pendu & Zana Bayne called, “Magnum Opus” SS14. she purchased two items: a bracelet and a necklace which she modified slightly to make it a leather collar. How? she added holes at the buckles to tighten it and removed the attached triangle piece so Master could attach His lead.
The term “Post-Fetish” was coined by Todd Pendu as “decontextualizing traditional fetish gear into aesthetic accessories to be incorporated into everyday wear”.
Originally, dievca was focused on the person in the co-collaboration whose name was on the worked leather, Zana Bayne. But, she starting looking deeper into the gorgeous work of co-Creative Director, Todd Pendu after viewing some of his photographs.

“I am a self-described ‘Duchampian Punk’ and a proponent for Libertine Culture. I work independently outside the Establishment. My art doesn’t always fit in to convenient aesthetic categories. I’m interested in personal freedom and expression. I do what I want. I create for those outside society – for those who live by their own rules – not for everyone, but for everyone else.” – Todd Pendu

dievca’s first post: “Eddie Borgo creates beauty for the submissive” was offering a cuff as an elegant solution for a submissive to wear in the pre- 50 Shades of Grey World. Wearing something symbolizing BDSM was an edgy choice and trying to find something subtle, yet elegant was hard.
Times have changed in the 5+ years and now BDSM clothing and jewelry options have expanded. The BDSM flavor has been on many runways and in various collections. Now, it is easier to find elegant BDSM pieces and easier to wear leather collars, o-rings, chains, etc. in public.
That doesn’t mean an elegant, yet direct BDSM reference jewelry piece is no longer sought out. One of the first jewelry designers offering a BDSM edge was Eddie Borgo and this thicker collar came out in 2015. The collar is still gorgeous to wear, either symbolizing your submission – or not.
