I bring you quality and originality in the treasures we fashion. Mixing my father’s dry sense of humor with my mother’s artistic abilities, I come up with imaginative makings.

As artists I am inspired by everyday things around me…my family, nature, colors, emotions, moods, etc. Give me a fun piece of fabric, paper or beads and it’s off to the races! I love finding the “unusual” and making it into something functional!”

Welcome to Rich Gypsy Jewelry!

Literally, the term “gypsy” refers to descendants of the original Indian travelers who arrived in Western Europe after the downfall of the Byzantine empire in the 15th Century. They called themselves the ‘Lords of Little Egypt’ which contracted to Egyptians, Gyptians and eventually Gypsies or Gyppos.

I find it interesting that most of us have at least a little gypsy in us… something that draws us to explore and see what abundance life has to offer all of us. Even if it’s only for a day, a weekend, or a lifetime endeavor, we are all travelers.

I like cotton, linen, taffeta and vintage kimono fabrics, topstitching with different color thread, vintage trims, lace and buttons. If you like the same things you might find something you like here.

And for anyone wondering about my internet alias , it’s from T. Pynchon’s Vineland:

[..]They went out of the restaurant and down a long vinyl arcade,
among invisible birds and dew that still lay in the shadows,
to their conference room. The little portable sign read

Welcome to MonikaDesign – Eco friendly shop!
Hand crocheted bath and body gifts, kitchen items and home decor.
My name is Monika and I was born in Czechoslovakia, which is now Czech Republic. From the year 2000 I have been living in Florida with my only son. Ever since I was a little girl I always like to make everything myself.
My grandmother thought me how to sew, crochet, and knit. And once I knew how I didn’t want to buy any clothes and accessories for my dolls anymore; instead I just made them myself. I always had the dream to have my own business, but until 1989 it was impossible to start anything in Czechoslovakia.
My opportunity came after the downfall of communism, around the same time that my son was born. I make and design wooden mobiles for people of all ages,( I have shop on Etsy www.flyingzoo.etsy.com) and this year it will be 20 years since I’ve made my first one.
I’m still doing this for living but this year , maybe 2 months ago I opened second shop on Etsy with my knitting and crocheting. I love make things by my hands and I hope you like my knitting and crocheting too!

My name is Brooke Harper, and my beautiful daugher inspired me to start making handmade organic baby and toddler clothing. After having my baby I decided to take a break from the fast paced NYC fashion scene. I came back to our organic family farm in southern New Mexico, but I couldn’t sit still for long before I set up my shop. I believe in supporting our sustainable farmers and keeping our world beautiful for the coming generations.
