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
dievca really wants to buy this sweater for a close friend. It would be given with a great deal of humor.
Because dievca is returning to Scandinavia for work, she’s been running around buying hair dye, allergy meds, Coach items, etc. Some are items people have requested and the rest are gifts dievca has found for friends.
One of her very close friends speaks excellent English. But sometimes words take a different meaning in another country. Like the word “Special” – here’s the Mirriam-Webster definition:
Definition of special
Definition of special
None of these definitions apply to how, dievca’s friend uses the word, “Special”. The friend uses the word to describe someone who is high maintenance and demanding or a little bit crazy. Someone who is a pain-in-the-neck. that one? she’s special
The word is said with an inferred eyeball roll.
OK – its sarcasm.
Wouldn’t this sweater be great for someone who is (wait for it….) special herself? dievca’s friend would laugh so hard if she received this sweater as a gift.
Do you know anyone who is…..Special?
avoid the Dueling Parades….dievca will be heading to the beach on Sunday.
This year what will probably be the biggest queer celebration in New York City history will consist of dueling marches – the gigantic, official annual Pride march with all the celebratory floats, fueled by big business sponsors and a breakaway march designed to be a grassroots protest not only for the cause of civil rights but against the over-corporatization of the main parade.

- balance of giving and receiving
- release of guilt
- frees the ability to receive without pretense
- will and thoughts – the reason why we do what we do
- best color when you need Rest and Relaxation
dievca needed a functional outfit that could bounce back and forth between hot and cold temperature-wise. she shopped her closet for the Micheal Kors Sweater and Anorak and then got on a tear with the other aqua gear. Yes, it was a lot of color. But dievca stood out and received many compliments with the unexpected, non-NYC, color scheme. (Note: she had her Rag & Bone jeans hemmed, no ripped hems…).
A bustier (alternatively bustiere) is a form-fitting garment that is traditionally worn as lingerie. Its primary purpose is to push up the bust by tightening against the upper midriff and forcing the breasts up, while gently shaping the waist. A bustier resembles a basque, but it is shorter. It reaches down only to the ribs or waist.
Modern bustiers are often made with mesh panels rather than the traditional boning. Nowadays, it might also be worn as a push-up bra under a low-backed dress, or as a camisole for outer wear. Details
