BeadforLife

(photo: Charles Steinberg)


BeadforLife eradicates extreme poverty by creating bridges of understanding between impoverished Africans and concerned world citizens. Ugandan women turn colorful recycled paper into beautiful bead jewelry, and people who care open their hearts, homes and communities to buy and sell the beads.
The beads become income, food, medicine, school fees and hope. It is a small miracle that connects and enriches everybody in the Bead Circle.
All net profits from BeadforLife are invested in community development projects that help people work their way out of poverty.

Tabletop studio


I've been working on my fused glass collection constantly- trying out different techniques, styles......and needless to say I enjoy every minute!:)
I intend to mix styles; I'm very impulsive...:) I don't want to stick to any style,the fun part for me is to look for new ideas.
A hope that I'll be able to show you my glass pieces soon! I bought a "tabletop studio"!:) - I want to photograph my jewelry in a professional way as much as possible - it should not be done any other way since I'm a photographer ;) I have many ideas but I still need few more tools and, of coarse, more jewelry!
In parallel, I have been learning about the business part and designing my website, business card etc. Lots of work, lots of fun!:)
Folyamatosan dolgozom az uvegekszer "kollekciomon"- probalgatom a kulonbozo technikakat, stilusokat - mondani sem kell, elvezem minden percet!:)
Tudatosan nem szeretnek egy stilusnal sem leragadni, ahhoz tul impulziv vagyok:) Nekem az egeszben a legerdekesebb az uj keresese.
Remelem hamarosan megtudom mutatni az uveg alkotasaim! :) Vettem egy kis asztali fotostudiot!:) Amennyire csak lehet, szeretnem , ha az ekszerek es egyeb uvegtargyak profi modon lennenek fotozva.....ha mar fotos vonek, vagy mi :)Vannak elkepzeleseim, hogy is szeretnem a fotokat, -meg kell nehany eszkoz, no meg meg nehany ekszer! :) Koztudottan nem konnyu uveget fotozni, biztos eljatszadozom majd ezzel is!:)

Whistle Stop Bar/San Diego/South Park

We're in South Park yesterday which is a lovely neighborhood in San Diego. (Yes, on the South:) To be exact we're in a bar! To be more accurate we're in WhistleStop Bar. Why this bar is different than any other pub......This bar is more like a neighborhood gathering place where you can also have a beer. There is a movie screening every weekend. They get the movies from the indie video rental place next door. What a great idea! We watched “A Streetcar Named Desire” with Marlon Brando! :)
But there is always something happening there: alternative fashion shows, dj events, political rallies, craft fairs etc. Even dogs are welcome; there were three cute dogs yesterday! Anyways, this is a very relaxed, friendly place......take it easy people!:)


tegnap San Diego South Park varosreszeben voltunk. Egeszen pontosan ott egy kocsmaban!:) Megpontosabban a Vonatfutty Megallo Kocsmaban!:) Hogy mitol is mas,mint egy hagyomanyos becsuletsullyeszto. Hogy nem az. Sokkal inkabb egy kozossegi talalkahely, ahol eppenseggel meg sorozni is lehet, de ez mellekes. Viszont minden hetvegen klasszikus vagy egyeb muveszfilmeket vetitenek , - filmeket a szomszedos indie videokolcsonzobol kapjak.(mekkora otlet!) Tegnap a Vagy villamosa-t nezte a kozonseg .
Mindennap van valami program, olyan,mint alternativ divatbemutatok, politikai vitaestek, irok,koltok, zeneszek, sot van kotoverseny is, kezmuves bemutatok stb. :) Kutyakat is szivesen latnak, tegnap is volt harom!:) Szoval, vidam hely, mindenki bekes egyetertesben - miert is kell mindig mindenem gorcsolni??!:)

Happy Mothers day to everyone!

"Ranchos" Mexican and Vegetarian Restaurant in San Diego

There is good Mexican restaurant in the city. Rather there is some 100 good Mexican restaurants in the city but this one is different... The athmosphere (the entrance is through a flower garden), the lights, the Mexican relics on the wall, Frida, ... everything is friendly but mysterious. The food is always fresh, the service is quick and attentive. And the seafood chowder is superb!:) The taste resembles the fish soup from my hometown but it is possible that it just homesickness!:)
If someone wants to try the Mexican seafood chowder here is the recipe
Van egy jo kis mexikoi etterem a varosban! Pontosabban azt hiszem tobb szaz jo kis mexikoi etterem van a varosban, de ez valahogy mas...Az atmoszferaja ( mar a bejarat is egy viragdzsungel!:), fenyei, a mexikoi relikviak a falon, Frida, olajmecses....baratsagosan titokzatosak. Az etel mindig friss, kiszolgalas figyelmes es gyors . ES! A "seafood chowder"- uk valami csoda!:) Izre icipicit emlekeztetett a szegedi halaszlere is, de ez lehet, hogy tulfutott erzelmi honvagyos rahangolodas !:)
Ha valaki szeretne kiprobalni a mexikoi tengeriherkentyus levest, ime a recept:
Mexican seafood chowder
Things You'll Need:
canned clams
peeled shrimp
crab meat
any white fish
onion
cabbage
carrots
cilantro
jalapeno
tomato
garlic
1 tomato bouillon cube
salt
limes
Turn your stove on medium heat. Get a big cooking pot and fill it half way with water. Add salt and one piece of peeled garlic. Then take your bouillon cube and smash it up with your fingers and put it in the water.
Cut up all your veggies in bite size pieces and add them to the water. When you cut up the jalapenos cut them in four long pieces and add them to the water. Know you will want to wash your hands so the jalapenos don't burn your skin!
Cook the veggies until they are soft.It usually takes fifteen minutes. When the veggies are ready add your clams,shrimp and crab meat,fish.Cook for about five more minutes. When you are ready to serve squeeze some lime over the soup. Enjoy!

Glass casting


I've been trying out glass fusing technics...like casting. The pieces do not always came out from the kiln as I expected - but that's the beauty of it, isn't it?:) In this one too - as I designed it (and carved the firepaper for loooong time) I thought there'd be more Vasarely.....but there is not:) This is the back side of the piece. I think it is more attractive - especially if I let the sun shine through it....:) As the light changes so do the colors :)

Probalgatom az uvegtechnikakat, a darabok nem mindig ugy jonnek ki a kemencebol, ahogy azt elkepzeltem, de ez uveg szepsege!:) Ebben is terv szerint lett volna kicsivel tobb Vasarely ihlet, de nem lett .....:) De ha a megforditom es a nap fele tartom, ugy egesz szep!:) S ahogy a fenyviszonyok valtoznak, ugy valtoznak a szinek is!:)
