Mac

Hi everyone, I hope that you all are well!

My dear husband surprised me with a MacBook for my Bday... So I've been
busy to figure the new system out since then...:) My biggest challenge
is that I can hardly find anything... I miss my folders, my own way to
save and organize things - but I started to like this new guy too ...:) I
hope that after few days I'll be in much better shape:)
Even though I used to my PC I had many problems with it which I hope
won't be an issue with Mac... Just takes a little time and patience,
right?:) Right.

And back to my work:
I always wanted to make multi-strand necklaces. They are so much fun,
and can add a little kick to the pendants.... Usually I design the other
way around but for this piece the glass pendant was made for this cord
color-combination:) More to come!:)


Sziasztok, remelem mindenki jol!..:)


Draga ferjem meglepett egy MacBook-al a szuletesnapomon!:) Azota probalok eligazodni az uj rendszerben, tobbnyire semmit sem talalok:) Foleg a sajat jol bejaratott modszereim hianyoznak, amik persze a Mac-en nem mukodnek, de azert remelem par nap mulva mar ugyesebb leszek!:) Egy kis ido, turelem, ugye?

Hobnail Glass

I see them everywhere... I just did not know how to call them. They are beautiful (sometimes not so), colorful "bumpy" textured glasswares... Finally I know their name: Hobnail Glass. It was very popular in the Victorian times, usually in hand blown, translucent colored glass, which is sometimes called "Dew Drop Glass". Lemonade sets with a pitcher and matching glasses were very common at the turn of the century. In 1939 Fenton Art Glass first introduced their hobnail glass and in those early years it was in translucent colors. Milk glass hobnail was introduced by Fenton in 1950, and proved to be one of their most successful products. It kept the company going during the very difficult years when many other glassworks closed down. Just about every Fenton shape has been produced in hobnail milk glass.







I think we had something similar in Eastern Europe, too. Maybe Czech glass companies made them. I have to continue my research on this....:) Until then I just wanted to show you few I like.:)
 
Mindenfele latom ezeket a kis rucskos uvegeket.de nem tudtam,hogy hivjak oket - vegre sikerult kideriteni: Hobnail uveg. Angliaban is az USA-ban is nepszeruek voltak a Viktorianus korban, ekkor tobbnyire az atlatszo, szines uvegek, majd kesobb a Fenton Company feher opal uvegei terjedtek el.
Szerintem Magyarorszagon is voltak hasonloak, talan a hires cseh uveggyarak keszithettek? Majd ennek meg utananezek, addig is szerettem volna nehany szep darabot mutatni Nektek.

Romantic Prairie Style in California

I'd call myself a city person but sometimes I just wish if I could escape to a house like this... for days, months... with good books..(maybe a little polymer clay:)) . Picturesque landscape, quietness, everything is beautiful in its simplicity.... Peace and easy comfort. I found this California ranch house in the Country Almanac Magazine.(Sorry, no online version)  Country style can be a bit too kitschy but this house is just so stylish and still has the "kick-your-boots-off" feeling. I like how they paired the rugged furniture, farmhouse table with the delicate crystal chandeliers, airy curtains... That's the way I like "country style" ...:) (I'd also add few really modern pieces)

And my fav picture is the outside table with a goat! What a peaceful scene!:)
******************************************************************************

Bar alapvetoen minden a varosi elethez kot, de idonkent nagyon szivesen elbujnek egy ilyen videki hazba - par napra, par hetre...honapra...sok konyvvel, (esetleg egy kis ekszer-gyurmaval:)) Csend, beke, nyugalom, gyonyoru taj, friss levego......Ezt a  kalifornia hazat a Country Almanach magazinban talatam (sajnos nincs internetes valtozatuk) . A "videki stilus" nekem idonkent tul "sok", tul viragos, tul videkieskedo ( tul toszkanositott:), giccsbe hajlo....de ez a haz, olyan, amit szivesen magamenak tudnek!:) Tetszik, ahogy a rusztikus, regi butorokat, hasznalati targyakat  jo erzekkel parositjak a kristaly csillarral, finom anyagu fuggonyokkel...Igy szeretem a "country" stilust! :) (Bar en meg adnek nehany igazan modern darabot is hozza:))
S micsoda idill a kerti asztal mellett legeleszo kecske!!:)) Bar vele nem tudom hogy jonnenk ki...:)

Japan

Now, more than ever, the Japanese people need our help and support to get through this crisis. Every little bit counts. Please help.

All proceeds from this jewelry will go the American Red Cross: Japan Earthquake & Pacific Tsunami Relief



This jewelry was made for donation with lots of love for those people who are suffering in a way we can not even imagine.

For a unique, interesting look I paired the very delicate Original Handmade Japanese Yuzen Chiyogami Paper with the Industrial Style metal frame and chain. The contrast between soft and rigid, modern and traditional materials makes this necklace truly one of a kind.

The Japanese Papers are between two glass layers. The two sides are different - so it can be worn two ways. Buy one and get one free!:)

It comes with a 12" double string metal chain.


You can purchase this in my Etsy shop. Thank you.

Venice Carnival Wall Art





My work was on a little bigger scale this time - it's great sometimes to express my ideas in little bit larger size than a pendant. One of my dream travel destination is Venice during the Carnival season (I've been there few times but never in February) - I really want to take a Carnival photo series (maybe in B&W). Until then I am creating Carnival inspired jewelry and wall pieces.:) This one was motivated by a photograph. I abstracted from the original idea - I focused on shapes and colors... It is on Etsy now:)


Ezuttal egy kicsit meretesebb alkotas - jo neha nagyobb leptekben gondolkodni,mint az apro medalok (bar az enyemek nem is olyan aprok:)  Regi vagy eljutni a Velence-i Karnevalra, kesziteni ott egy (fekete-feher) misztikus fotosorozatot... :) Addig is maradnak a karneval ihlette ekszerek, fali dekoraciok. Ez a darab egy foto utan keszult, absztrahalva, szinekre, formakra koncenralva. Mar az Etsy-n .:)

Spring, Anyone?

Went to the desert......

The Palm Springs tour did not have a very good start:



 To be more precise it had a very bad start since record setting cold and rain was in the forecast… In a place where it’s always way too hot and rain is a rare occasion…. Anyway, this was all set so we had to go!:)

This small town has a very special mood… perhaps the myth which still can be felt. This was the favorite place to party of the 50s and 60s Hollywood rich and famous. Everyone who was somebody had a house there – today buses-loads of tourists visit these places:) It must have been a very exciting life in this desert oasis for all the stars – if those stones could tell their stories of exuberance!:) But it was not only famous as the amusement place for the privileged but was also well-known for the modern architecture which started to boom in the 50s and created a real movement in the US. The “Mid Century Modern” grew out of Bauhaus in the US and such architects were important representatives of the school as Albert Frey, Donald Wexler, Richard Neutra, E. Stewart Williams, John Lautner and many others.
I do not know what your feelings are towards this style but I like it very much - I am drawn to the 60s anyway!:) I like the large floor-to-ceiling windows, the clean shapes, the bare frames, the white walls – only the desert life-style which is not too alluringJ
Besides the Wexler exhibit I was awed by the contemporary glass exhibition in the Palm Springs Art Museum… It is fantastic what some people can do with glass!!:)) Finally, I could see a Lino Tagliapietra piece from up close – I was not disappointed!:)

(To Round Rabbit: Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to see the documentary but I'll order it online! Thank you!









Nem kezdodott valami baratsagosan a Palm Springs-i kiruccanas. Egesz pontosan nagyon baratsagtalanul kezdodott, ugyanis rekordokat dontogeto hideget, esozes josoltak...Ott, ahol szinte mindig elviselhetetlen hoseg van, eso nagyon ritkan...Mindegy, ez most kihagyhatatlan, menni kell!:)

Van ennek a kisvarosnak egy kulonleges hangulata....talan a mitosz, ami mai napig korul lengi. Az 50-es, 60-as evekben ez volt Hollywood egyik kedvenc party-helye, mindenkinek, aki szamitott haza volt itt - ma ezekhez a hazakhoz zarandok turista buszok viszik az erdeklodoket:) Hatalmas elet lehetett ebben a foleg sztarok lakta sivatagi oazisban,- ha ezek a kovek meselni tudnanak, biztos sok bujasagot megtudnank!:) De nem csak a kivaltsagosok szorakozo helyerol hires, hanem az 50-es evekben fellendulo modern epiteszeterol, ami iskolateremto volt Amerikaban. A "Mid Century Modern" Amerikaban a Bauhausbol notte ki magat, olyan epiteszeket jegyez a stilus,mint Albert Frey, Donald Wexler, Richard Neutra, E. Stewart Williams, John Lautner, es sokan masok. A varos ma is tele klasszikus modern stilusu butor es design uzletekkel, galeriakkal.
Nem tudom ki hogy erez ezzel a stilussal kapcsolatban, en nagyon szeretem - amugy is van egy eros vonzodasom a 60-as evekhez!:)) Tetszenek a padlotol mennyezetig ero ablakok, a letisztult formak, a szabadon hagyott tartoszerekezetek, a feher falak, - egyedul a sivatagi eletmod, ami nem vonzo szamomra:)
Az Art Museumban a Wexler kiallitas mellett a kortars uveg kiallitason tatottam a szam.......Fantasztikus, hogy egyesek mire kepesek az uveggel!!:))
Vegre kozelrol lathattam egy Lino Tagliapietra alkotast is - Nem okozott csalodast!:)
