Juliet Schreckinger: Archival Limited Edition Prints

Email: juliet@julietschreckinger.com
Web: www.julietschreckinger.com/shop

Limited edition fine art prints on archival paper by Artist Juliet Schreckinger. Each one is hand signed, dated, and numbered by Juliet. Print titles as seen in order on the poster: “Oscar’s Lighthouse”, “William and His Lighthouse”, “Oscar”, “The Lightkeepers” and “Horton’s Lighthouse.”

Born in 1999, Juliet is a Long Island, NY based artist. Her work is typically created using a stippling technique in pen & ink and graphite, with occasional splashes of color. Juliet’s pieces are inspired by the ocean, nature, and all of the creatures within our world.

Since the time she was a child, Juliet has been fascinated by black and white photography, colorless television shows, and film noir movies. Being exposed to the lighting effects and sharp contrasts shown in these photographs and films greatly inspired the type of work that she does today.

Juliet’s work is centered around giving a voice to nature and animals, with the goal of showcasing their importance in this world. Through an illustrative take on fine art, she attempts to express a story in each drawing.

Aquamarine: Octopus Statement Necklace in Sterling Silver

Web: http://aquamarinesilver.co.uk/aquamarine_octopus_oc05.htm

Aquamarine means sea water, and according to the ancients, the gemstone is said to hold the ‘Spirit of the Sea’, a sentiment which jeweller Rose Ledbury strives to capture in her designs. Rose is a keen scuba diver who has been turning her passion for the ocean into silver jewellery for over 15 years.

Octopuses are a firm favorite, these peculiar creatures make any dive memorable and they have been the inspiration for this stunning statement necklace, whilst those wanting something a little more delicate could try the distinctive Blue Shark pendant or Bull Shark bracelet, both made in sterling silver. We also have plenty of new additions to our classic collections, including a Whale Shark ring, dramatic Manta Ray necklaces and sweet silver Seahorses.

All of Aquamarine jewellery is designed and made in the UK. It will arrive gift boxed and postage is free of charge.

Fourth Element Thermocline

Tel: +44 (0)1326 574745
Email: info@fourthelement.com
Web: www.fourthelement.com/product-category/wetsuits/thermocline

This is revolutionary thermal protection. Lightweight, neutrally buoyant, machine washable, breathable and hypo-allergenic, the Thermocline range can be worn on its own in tropical waters or underneath a wetsuit for extra warmth making it a versatile lightweight wetsuit system.

The breathable fabric ensures that the wearer is more comfortable when out of the water. The inner fleece layer draws moisture away from the skin and wicks through the breathable membrane where it evaporates off the recycled Nylon surface. In the water, the membrane traps a thin layer next to the body and prevents colder water flowing over the body.

Thermocline dries rapidly, often within an hour or between dives – a quick rinse and a squeeze to get rid of excess water before hanging it up inside out should ensure it is ready for your next adventure.

Thermocline is made using Econyl® Regenerated nylon from recycled Ghost fishing nets and other post-consumer waste. RRP £74.50 – £257.50.

XDEEP NX Series Regulator – LS700/LS200

Tel: +44 (0)333 444 0104
Email: info@nautilus.uk
Web: www.nautilus.uk/findaretailer

The patented first-stage diving regulator NX700 is equipped with a range of solutions. These allow it to be configured so that in every configuration, the hoses are perfectly positioned. Hose routing should avoid bending or contact with the buoyancy compensator, which could negatively affect safety and cause premature wear of the hoses.

The key element is the rotary head located at the front of the first stage. The head can be locked at set angles depending on the preference and requirements of the user. The head can also be left to rotate.

The Low Pressure (LP) ports in the rotary head are placed slightly in front in relation to the buoyancy compensator. The hose ports are also set at an angle so the hoses that point downwards (e.g. the drysuit inflation hose, a second-stage long hose) bypass the inflated BCD without any interference.

As standard, the first stage NX700 is equipped in a rotating head with three LP ports. This ensures the perfect arrangement of hoses in all standard configurations.

The Modular Turret System (MTS) allows for choosing from several different rotary and fixed heads with specific port positions. This enables optimum positioning and angles of the LP ports in all configurations, including non-standard or specialist applications (e.g. some rebreathers). Contact the manufacturer for more information on the available options in the MTS system.

Northern Diver announce new SV Dive Hoods

Published

on

Manufactured from supple, 5mm superstretch neoprene, and complete with a plush internal lining, this hood fits like a comfortable second skin. This is further enhanced by the Black Skin neoprene face seals on the inside and outside of the hood, designed to effectively hug the contours of the face, providing exceptional sealing properties.

Performance, fit and comfort are also improved thanks to the one-way Supervent valve, located at the top of the hood. This innovative vent removes trapped air from within the hood, increasing comfort and ensuring a perfect fit throughout the dive.

The effective fit and construction of the hood ensures exceptional thermal protection, however, this is further improved by a unique Ti-Ax® coating applied to the hood for superior heat retention. Likewise, it also features an external MA heavy duty coating, for increased durability and longevity.

FEATURES

  • Improved design
  • 5mm superstretch neoprene
  • Skin neoprene outer face seal
  • Skin neoprene inner face seal
  • Plush internal lining (red)
  • Supervent at top of hood
  • Unique Ti-Ax® Coating
  • External MA Heavy Duty Coating
  • x2 bartacks on chin seam
  • Northern Diver reflective logo
  • Overprint design on side panels
