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.

Frozen elegance in Bryant Park!
This year was the coldest Thanksgiving since November 30th, 1871.
According to the National Weather Service, that year there was a low of 15 F(-9.4 C) and a high of 22 F(-5.55 C) .
This year’s windchill took the temperatures downward.
Black Friday started out chilly (17 F or -8.3 C) — after this Frozen Moment we are back to 50 F (10 C).
Yet, dievca did cycle to work and Jury duty…
And people wonder why they are sick~
