.....and a Simply Red after the Black

I've made this necklace with Christmas on my mind. What are your favorite holiday colors? I like silver with gold.... Or red with silver.... white with silver.... I'm not so crazy about red with green.... but I like simple,  puritan  decoration.... and I don't care for trends... :)

Black Simplicity

For those who like simplicity in this not so simple season.....:)
Azokra is gondolva, akik nem szeretik a hagyomanyos, csillogo, szines unnepi ekszereket:)

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!


I'm very thankful to you all who are following here my journey. Thanks for joining me every day, thanks for your support. Thank you.

Peak view of Ginnifer's necklace


Ughhhhhh... It was a challenging project!:) When I realized that I have
4-5 days all together to create something I panicked a little....:) One
firing process is about 14-15+ hours... And the way I make a pendant is
not the simplest way.... I don't make shortcuts... I always try to do
things differently... (That's why no Glassimo pieces are look-alike)...
So I had plenty of ideas but no time... And suddenly I just came up with
this glass-lace design... I knew that one of her favorite colors is
red... and I added a little silver... somehow it turned out a little
Japanese - isn't it?:) I hope that she would not mind... I was running
around San Diego to get sterling silver rings.. I did:) And I express
ordered the Italian Sterling Silver Necklace... Thanks God it arrived
fast! Now I need to make some final touches, gift wrap it and write a
card to Ginnifer. And it's ready to ship. :) Let's hope she will like
it - and wear it at least once.:)

Huuuuuu....Volt ebben a projektben egy kis kihivas! Rajottem, hogy mindossze 4-5 napom van alkotni valamit...ami foleg azert keves, mert egy egetes/hutes procedura az minimum 14-15 ora. Raadasul sosem a legegyszerubb modszereket valasztom, szeretek minden darabnal valami ujat kitalalni....Igy volt ez most is. Otletek voltak, ido keves. Szerettem volna "valami mast", eloszor egeszen mas elkepzeleseim voltak - aztan egyszer cssak bejott ez az uveg-csipke otlet. Azt tudtam, hogy Ginnifer egyik kedvenc szine a piros, ehhez adtam egy pici ezustot, egettem jonehanyszor, csiszoltam, ujra egettem...De elkeszult!:) Kozben ezust karikakert szaladgaltam, expressz gyors olasz ezustlancot rendeltem _ Halistennek ideert idoben!:) Meg nehany utolso simitas, aztan csomagolom, irok egy lapot Ginnifernek ( mit irjak?) es feladom. Remelem tetszeni fog - es legalabb egyszer hordani is fogja!:)

Bread Pudding with Fruit Compote

This is a perfect "sweets" for a lazy Sunday morning... or afternoon... or any time when you want something easy, light, yet comforting. The "hands-on-time" is only 15 mins. The pudding and the compote can made up to one day in advance. Before serving, bring the compote to room temperature and warm the pudding, covered, in 350 F oven for 30-40 minutes. Your family will be so grateful! :)
Very delicious - enjoy!:)

Serves 10Hands-On Time: 15m Total Time: 1hr 40m

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, plus more for the baking dish
  • large eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 pound challah bread or brioche, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 10 cups)
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 cup dried apricots, cut into quarters
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 2 tablespoons brandy (optional)
  • Directions
  1. Butter a 9-by-13-inch or some other large, shallow baking dish. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, vanilla, 1 cup of the sugar, and ½ teaspoon salt.
  2. Heat oven to 350° F. Place the bread in the prepared dish and pour in the egg mixture, pressing the bread down to submerge it. Let sit for 30 minutes, pressing down on the bread occasionally.
  3. Sprinkle the bread with ¼ cup of the remaining sugar and dot with the butter. Place the dish on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until set and golden, 55 to 65 minutes (tent with foil if the pudding browns too quickly).
  4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the orange juice, apricots, raisins, cherries, and the remaining ¼ cup of sugar and ¼ teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the fruit is soft and the liquid is slightly thickened, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the brandy (if using). Serve the compote with the bread pudding.

Snowflake Plate

This is about all the snow we get here in San Diego.:) Some people say it is a good thing others think we're missing out on something - I think that everybody is right!:)
I definitely need to force myself a little to get into the holiday mood.... the weather does not cooperates ( it's raining, it's pouring now).... perfect time to work next to the kiln!:)
I cut few snowflake patterns out of fusible paper and fused them between two clear glass sheet. After that it was slumped into a form.... and voila!:)

Probaltam egy kis havat varazsolni ide San Diegoba - mert nekem a ho az hianyzik!:)
A kis talhoz specialis "fusing" papirbol vagtam ki a hopiheket, egettem ket uveg koze, majd formaba rogyasztottam - tel 12 x 12cm-en.:)

Simplify Your Holiday


This is my new coaster set which goes to LA's Co-op28 store.
I enjoy designing coasters and plates because of their the larger scale.
This one was created with the Holiday Season in my mind... I wanted a
little spark - but not too much. No reindeers or Santa... so it could be
used all year long. Red glass was paired with amazing iridescent glass.
Iridescent glass was flash-fired with a micro thin layer of metallic
crystal, creating lustrous jewel-like reflected light. The surface is
sometime green-purple, sometimes goldish-blue, sometimes patina-like... all depends on the beam of
light. Very elegant yet simple.You can purchase it in Los Feliz or
contact me for custom orders!:)

A legujabb pohar alatet-szett, ami mar kicsit unnepi  hangulatban keszult. Egy kis csillogast szerettem volna, de nem tul sokat!..."Karacsonyost", de nem renszarvasokat, hoembereket:)...Olyat, amit egesz evben lehet hasznalni, -unnepelyes, de megis egyszeru, elegans. Keves szezonalis darabot keszitek,bar neha elkap az ihlet.:) 
Itt opal piros uveget parositottam irizalt uveggel - ami "patinas" feluletet ad,- a szinek a fenytol fuggoen hol aranyloan-kekek, hol zoldesek, hol lilasan csillognak... Azt hiszem ennyi unnepre utalas boven eleg - nem hianyzik tobb csillogas, motivum stb:) 
A szett Los Angeles-i Co-Op28 ban lesz kaphato, egyedi megrendelesek ugyeben irjatok!:)
