The British fine jewellery brand Boodles is pleased to unveil a new collection of exquisite design led creations, Ocean of Dreams; which will be available in Boodles showrooms from June 2014.
Inspired by a mysterious and magical underwater world, 'Ocean of Dreams' is a couture collection of exquisite, one-off fine jewellery pieces. Diamond and coloured gem stone creations depict stories of the sea with delicate and intricate designs; Pariba Tourmalines symbolise the mesmerising waters of the Atlantic, whilst white marquise diamonds represent the elegant curves of a dolphins fin. Created over a period of two years, each suite creates an individual tale of the ocean whilst demonstrating the exquisite craftsmanship and design that goes into all Boodles fine jewellery.
Director and Head of Stone Sourcing, Jody Wainwright commented: 'When looking for diamonds or coloured stones for Boodles high jewellery collections, we not only ensure that they are of the finest quality; they must poses captivating qualities that go beyond the norm. For example, for our 'Atlantic Blue' suite, we sourced some of the finest Pariba Tourmalines from Pariba, in Brazil; Pariba's are judged on colour and these are electrifying, with a glowing neon blue!'

The human soul is as deep as the ocean. It is an ocean made of thoughts and memories, unspoken yearnings and unconscious desires. To dream is to explore its depths, to immerse oneself in its vastness.
The ocean's unfamiliar flora and other-worldly corals unsettle even as they delight. But their magic and beauty is beyond question. The mysterious creatures of the deep are no less alluring; over the centuries, they have given birth to legends. Dreams are as elusive as mermaids, as intangible as their beauty and as irresistible as their call...
DOLPHINS' SERENADE - Diamonds set in Platinum
When dolphins gather for a serenade, they circle joyfully in the water, revelling in each other's company. But all that can be seen from the surface are the gracefully curved fins that inspire this suite, with marquise diamonds standing out among smaller diamonds, like dolphins among little fish.
The playful earrings are made up of fin-shaped sections zig-zagging downward in an angular fashion, whilst the necklace combines the swirling motions of a dolphins' serenade, with a dramatic drop made up of fin-shaped sections.
ATLANTIC BLUE - Paraiba Tourmaline and Diamonds set in Platinum
In the sea, nothing is still. Everything is alive. The gentle movement of underwater foliage is captured here in swirling platinum set with diamonds. Brilliant blue Paraiba tourmalines evoke the reflection of the sky on shallow waters on a cloudless day.
A hidden coral branch can be found on the delicate cuff, amid delicate curls and love hearts.
Precious Paraiba tourmalines and diamonds are clustered at the pendant's neckline and return dramatically at the drop, styled like a mermaid's purse.
UNDERWATER DREAMS -Tanzanite and diamonds set in Platinum
Ethereal and other-worldly seaweed inspires a diverse suite of dreamy pieces. Tanzanites are encircled by smaller stones that resemble delicate aquatic foliage, like seaweed concealing lost treasure.
The earrings take the form of a trailing stem of tanzanites and diamonds, culminating in a larger stone at the focal point whilst the pear-shaped tanzanite at the heart of the pendant and ring, are surrounded by diamond and tanzanite swirling fronds.
MERMAID'S TALE - Diamonds set in Platinum
Swirls of platinum and diamonds evoke the ripples that remain on the water after a tantalising vision. For centuries, seafarers have told tales of beautiful maidens glimpsed in the water for an instant, only to disappear before the observer can be sure his eyes aren't playing tricks on him. The allure of such beauty, always just out of reach, arouses a deep yearning in the human soul.
Diamonds drop teasingly from the swirl of the earrings, drawing the eye from the elusive prey. The ring features round brilliant and fancy cut diamonds amid the swirling platinum aftermath of a sighting.
SEA STAR - Pink and white Diamonds set in Platinum
A tribute in pink and white diamonds to the starfish, a unique treasure of the deep, whose shape mirrors that of the twinkling celestial bodies above. The cuff is a string of pink diamond starfishes entwined with whirlpools of diamonds.
OCEAN MOON - Chalcedony, Diamonds, Sapphires and Aquamarines set in Platinum
There is no setting richer in mystery and romance than the Caribbean on a clear, still night. Long, milky blue drops of chalcedony evoke the reflection of the moon stretching over the night sea. They contrast beautifully with the sparkling, star-like diamonds and aquamarines of clamshell details, separated by sapphires, all mounted in platinum.
Boodles Ocean Moon pendant features charming fanned shell motifs joining the chain before the luxurious chalcedony drop.
SEASHORE DRIFT - Tourmaline, Diamonds and Seed Pearls set in Platinum
Seashore Drift sees their alluring deep green colour reflected in exquisite tourmaline, set off by iridescent seed pearls and diamonds, to resemble treasures plucked from a magical rock pool.
PASTEL REEF - Aquamarines, Tsavorites, pink and yellow Sapphires, green and yellow Beryls with Diamonds, set in white and yellow Gold
Coral reefs are the gardens of the ocean. Their abundant beds are home to a wealth of flora and beautiful sea creatures. The rich variety of forms and colours to be found there is one of the wonders of the world, and is replicated here in aquamarines, tsavorites, pink and yellow sapphires, green and yellow beryls and pear diamonds, all set in yellow, white and rose gold.
DEEP SEA TREASURE - South sea and freshwater Pearls set in Rose Gold
The deep sea necklace comprises South Sea and freshwater pearls, small diamonds and rose gold seashells. The pearls on the earrings dangle from seashells, moving as if with the ocean current.

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging.

The web app is Agile. The REST API is Agile. The testing and planning are Agile. But alas, Data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes which force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software orga...

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between confe...

However, the container space has evolved drastically since coming on...
