Geraldine Marie releases Magnificence, the new signature collection

Geraldine Marie unveils her signature collection, and goes live on December 17, 2018.

Magnificence goes live on December 17, 2018

This jewelry is made with embedded pinecones, shamrocks, etc in non-toxic Eco epoxy resin, real gemstones, and pearls with gold filled/silver filled components.

Geraldine Marie is known for helping women who feel a deep connection to nature and want to take it with them so they can be inspired by nature.”

— Geraldine Doble

NEW PORTLAND , MAINE, USA, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Geraldine Doble from Geraldine Marie is releasing the brand new Magnificence Collection. This is her signature collection, and each product will be individually made by the designer herself. Geraldine Marie is known for helping women who feel a deep connection to nature and want to take it with them so they can be inspired by nature.Thus, for the first time, Geraldine Doble has created an entire product line of her favorite and most popular necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.

The new Magnificence Collection is scheduled to go live on December 17, 2018. The necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are designed to showcase nature & natural with real freshwater pearls strung on natural silk cord. They make women who want to take nature with them feel as if they were ambling though the forest and hearing the gentle breeze rustling through the leaves.

Several products come in white pearls, pink rose quartz, navy blue lapis lazuli, and green aventurine with all .925 silver filled or 14k gold filled metals to capitalize on today's trends. Some necklace pendants are made from non-toxic, Eco epoxy resin which mean women will be able to buy resin jewelry with confidence and safety in mind. Her collection also includes jewelry cleaning cloths as well as a custom jewelry box with each purchase to keep the jewelry pieces looking like new. The collection will be exclusively sold on the website www.geraldinemarie.us .

Each individual piece has its own distinct name and are also part of a two piece set that is also named. A few examples are: White Luster Lady, Shimmering Shamrock Lady, Elegant Nacre Drops, Lustrous Sparkle and Unconditional Stone. Magnificence ranges in price from $60 to $190, and sets range from $140 to $260. Geraldine Doble is excited to welcome her fans to her the new handmade product line collection they've been requesting.

Geraldine Doble started designing fine quality jewelry using embedded preserved items after she was faced with a very real problem. When she discovered a preserved flower pendant for the first time, it brought back her youthful wonder of nature. She rediscovered her love for the outdoors & wanted to know everything she could about this. She watched countless how-to videos, as well as reading many articles. Unfortunately she also learned how under appreciated this jewelry art form truly was. She was saddened and could not believe how disrespectful this was to the magnificent flowers and plants within. To her, nature deserves respect and appreciation. There is nothing like it, the way it keeps going regardless of the obstacles, or how breathtaking and exquisite it can be. She chose to respect those beautiful organics by elevating all the other components to match its beauty and wonder. After many months of creating these premium quality pieces, Geraldine Doble's products started gaining notoriety amongst the jewelry industry.

She has a very close bond to nature from growing up in the western mountains of Maine. The outdoors has always been her safe haven through the ups and down in her life, and she still uses nature to gain perspective. There is this serenity that comes over her seeing the first flower after the long winter, or seeing the first splash of red, orange or yellow at the beginning of every fall.

But these beautiful things don't last very long. Its just how it is, right? Thats what she thought until she discovered this method of preserving these beautiful things forever, and she was hooked. She is so passionate about this and loves every single part of making this jewelry. She has made this her life's work to love and respect each flower, pinecone, and leaf. By taking it from something that would surely wilt and disappear, to making it into something unique, loved and cherished.

She has always adored any type of rock and can remember how excited she was the first time she saw a real opal on her mother's ring. It mesmerized her, with the sheer beauty and tiny colorful flecks. Where did this come from? It was so beautiful. It was so exciting for her to see all these amazingly precious stones turned into trinkets, like the quartz she grew up collecting and admiring.

To her, adding gemstones (in any form) to the jewelry she designs is exactly the same in terms of value as an embedded flower. It starts off in a natural state and is transformed into a polished, magnificent wearable piece of nature. So it was an easy decision for me to add gemstones and pearls to resin encased flowers and leaves.

“We’re always strong in Americana, with the presidents and the Rev and Civil Wars, but this sale also has strong foreign consignments, too,” said John Reznikoff, the president and owner of University Archives. “We have many British Monarch items that are tastefully framed and were originally purchased from notable autograph dealer Kenneth Rendell. On top of that I note a very unusual WWII period huge Hirohito document which includes a decorative award that is quite a piece of art. Also, a rare Czarina Catherine (the Great) signed document and a handful of others.”

The Washington portrait engraving – an exquisite framed mezzotint measuring 12 ¾ inches by 9 ¾ inches – has an international pedigree. It was engraved from a painting by Jean-Baptiste Le Paon (French, 1738-1785), with elements of Charles Wilson Peale (American, 1741-1827) and Noel Le Mire (French, 1724-1793).

The lyrics and signature were authenticated by Dylan’s manager. The bi-fold letter written and signed by George Washington in 1780 is addressed to Nathaniel Greene, the noted Rev-War general. In it he addresses ongoing concerns about supplies for the troops (est. $15,000-$17,000).

JFK’s personally owned rosary beads had been previously gifted, via donation, by Kennedy’s mother, Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, in 1974, to Sister Fabiola Parent of the Sinsinawa (Wisc.) Sisterhood and curator and founder of the Sinsinawa Rosary Museum (est. $20,000-$24,000). Also, a copy of the special edition of LIFE magazine from 1961, for the inauguration of JFK, one of only three known copies that were signed by Kennedy, carries an estimate of $4,000-$5,000.

A two-page letter handwritten and signed by the evolutionary theorist Charles Darwin (British, 1809-1882), dated “Jan 31”, should gavel for $6,000-$7,000. The letter is to Darwin’s lawyer, Thomas Salt, and regards the family home in Shrewsbury. Also, items pertaining to aviation pioneer Orville Wright – a check dated Aug. 11, 1917 and signed by him, an original part from his plane and a print of the Wright Brothers’ first flight – is expected to soar to $3,000-$4,000.

A large, Japanese World War II-era document, in which Emperor Hirohito of Japan confers the Imperial Order of Meiji upon Eiichi Yamamoto, with the Star of the Order of the Sacred Treasure, signed in Japanese and dated April 18, 1940, should bring $4,000-$4,500; while an outstanding studio portrait of Wild West showman “Buffalo Bill” Cody in full Western costume, with a hat and rifle, signed by him and with a charming inscription, should garner $3,500-$3,750.

With the baseball post-season in full swing, what fan wouldn’t appreciate a mini Adirondack bat signed by some of the game’s all-time greats? These include DiMaggio, Mantle, Mays, Torre, Banks, Aaron, Bench, Williams, Ford, Perez, Gibson, Clemente, Musial and Rose (est. $3,000-$4,000). Also, a Bicentennial (1776-1976) Executive Service Badge (the short-lived precursor agency of the Secret Service), brass and painted red, white and blue, should make $600-$700.

A document dated 1774, probably a military appointment, signed by Russian Empress Catherine (the Great) II (1729-1796), as “Ekaterina” in the lower right corner, printed in Russian Cyrillic lettering on parchment, is estimated at $3,000-$3,500. Also, a one-page letter written in French and signed by Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821), as “Napol”, in which he outlines a grueling marching schedule, penned at Finckenstein Palace in May 1807, should rise to $1,500-$1,600.

A letter written by Union officer David Farragut on July 16, 1862, from his flagship Hartford during the bombardment of Vicksburg, Miss., during the Civil War, on the day Farragut was promoted to Rear Admiral (unbeknownst to him) carries an estimate of $1,500-$1,700; while a newspaper account of the Boston Massacre and the resulting political tensions in its aftermath, as described in the Boston Gazette and Country Journal, July 16, 1770, should fetch $1,000-$1,200.

BriefBuy.com now offers Cool Cloze men’s underwear brand. The Cool Cloze brand brings new and innovative yarn blends and fabrics to men’s underwear drawers

Cool Cloze offers Luxurious Comfort for Everyday Wear at Every Day Prices”

— Krzyston, President Ready To Buy, LLC

HINSDALE, ILLINOIS, USA, October 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Brief Buy announced the introduction of Cool Cloze men’s underwear brand. The Cool Cloze brand brings new and innovative yarn blends and fabrics to men’s underwear drawers.

The current Cool Cloze lines offered at BriefBuy.com includes products crafted from Lenzing Modal, Milk Silk and Bamboo Silk. These modern blends are ultra-soft, lightweight, and luxurious on the skin. Also highly air permeating and moisture-wicking – all a perfect fit for men’s underwear. These fantastic fabrics are better known internationally than in the US, but they are becoming more and more popular here because of their great qualities, luxurious feel and advantages over cotton.

One important advantage the have over cotton is that they are more flexible because of a 4-way stretch (vs. the 2-way stretch of Cotton). This 4-Way stretch means that the new materials comfortably stretch – all ways — around contours to create a personalized ‘3-D’ fit. This is unlike traditional underwear which attempts to accommodate all shapes with a handful of standardized sizes.

Modal, Milk Silk and Bamboo Silk also handle moisture better than cotton since they are lighter weight and quicker drying so they don’t hold moisture in the same way cotton does. Their lighter weight also makes them more air permeating, which means they are cooler than cotton.

Cool Cloze selected these materials for the current line at BriefBuy.com in order to bring their luxurious comfort to everyday wear, at every day prices.

iBrics modules are intelligent building blocks. Each iBrics module is engineered to perform one or more actions. The color-coded iBrics connect to each other, by following simple-to-understand rules, to design and create cool objects. iBrics modules are compatible with each other, including future modules.

After multiple iterations, we developed an effective solution and tested this solution across multiple schools and libraries. Feedback from over 200 middle and high school students who participated was extremely positive. iBrics is the result of our multi-year journey to develop, test, and validate a progressive learning environment which engages students through age and skill based challenges. We help children become “future-ready”, and are counting on the parent community to help us bring this unique learning concept to market”.

Introducing SportCoups: Fundraising for the Student Athlete

SportCoups: Fundraising for the Student Athlete

A fundraising app dedicated to helping student- and youth-athletes raise money for their individual sports-related financial needs is now available!

WILMINGTON, MA, UNITED STATES, October 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — WILMINGTON, Mass., Oct. 16, 2018 — InterlinkONE is excited to announce the launch of SportCoups, a fundraising app dedicated to helping student- and youth-athletes raise money for their individual sports-related financial needs.

Our Story
A silent investor approached John Foley Jr. with a problem and an idea. After watching his son go through countless seasons of fundraising, he realized the process was a hassle, time-consuming and could be easier. He asked, "What if athletes could fundraise directly from their phones?" And with that, SportCoups was born.

SportCoups was created with the individual athlete in mind. The goal is to make it easier for athletes to raise money for things such as user fees, equipment, uniforms, tournaments, camps, travel costs and more! Gone are the days of athletes going door-to-door, standing outside supermarkets or asking family members to purchase coupon cards, candy, etc. Instead, athletes can download the app, create a profile and invite their FANS (family, friends, and neighbors) to donate.

Donor Rewards
"The essence of donating is a selfless act, but we wanted to add a feature to the app that thanks the donor for their contribution with a monetary benefit. Donors will have instant access to nearly 100 coupons right from their phones for 6 months," explains Co-Founder John Foley Jr. With these coupons, donors can easily earn back their donation and more.

Nothing like that exists today. Why $20? Most friends and family will not think twice about giving $20 to an athlete when they know the money will be put to good use. This approach is an effective method of fundraising and those donations really make a big difference.

How It Works
Athletes, or parents, can download the app, register, set up the profile and create the fundraiser. Next, they execute their campaigns by sending out invitations to their fans via text, email, and social media. They can easily manage their fundraiser and keep track of the amount raised. Donations go directly into their, or their parent's, linked bank account.

While SportCoups was created with the individual athlete in mind, teams can also use this to fundraise. To do this, each player would link their campaign to the same trusted bank account. This eliminates the problem of athletes having to be responsible for collecting and keeping track of cash.

SportCoups is now available on the App Store and Google Play. Download today!

About Heavy Fire: Red Shadow
Set in the not-so-distant future, tension between a bold North Korea and the United States have been stretched beyond their breaking point.

Step onto the unforgiving battlefield, establish a beachhead, and holdfast behind a turret-mounted machine gun. A brutal and unceasing onslaught of enemy forces will attempt to flank and eliminate Sgt. Will from every angle as he and a few surviving comrades rain hell upon anything that crosses their sights.
