Christian Jewelry Company B.BéNI's Mother And Daughter Co-founders Use Modern Technology To Connect From Coast to Coast and Create A Unique Christian Jewelry Line

B.BéNI produces spectacular Christian jewelry that represents deep biblical faith

Many years in the jewelry industry led B.BeNI's co-founder, Diane Beloncik and her daughter, to the realization that something was lacking in the world of jewelry - really spectacular Christian jewelry that represents deep biblical faith. She developed a passion to fill that void with a line of unique designs.  The company now produces unique Christian jewelry, such as Christian bracelets and Christian necklaces. B.BéNI is dedicated to providing customers with the highest quality of faith inspired jewelry with a modern day approach.

B.BeNI's jewelry making process uses computer aided drafting technology to create their one-of-a-kind designs  Each piece is their own original design starting from a simple sketch, which is then transferred to a CAD design and then to a solid model. A cast piece is then made from the solid model. The final step is the plating process and the clear lacquer protective finish for durability. The technological approach to this Christian jewelry business does not end there however.

B.BéNI is a partnership between Diane Beloncik and her daughter, Taryn. It is a unique partnership, in that Diane is located on the East Coast, while her daughter is located on the West Coast. The two spend hours on the phone, face chatting and sharing photos. In their view, the distance between them is barely a factor. In fact, the CAD jewelry designer for B.BéNI is even farther away; he resides in the Canary Islands!

"We feel so grateful that because of modern technology we are able to have a jewelry business together that would have been virtually impossible 20 years ago. The distance between all of us has actually made this journey a more interesting one. Meeting our CAD designer (via the internet) from across the world and working together as a team to create our jewelry line has been a rewarding adventure."

B.BéNI's jewelry is manufactured in the state of Rhode Island, the jewelry capital of the USA. All of the metals, finishes, findings, clasps, gemstones and crystals are of the highest quality available. Fashion, Faith and Quality - not necessarily in that order - is what B.BéNI is all about.

Diane Beloncik has also opened the doors to retailers. The company is currently concentrating their efforts in the Southern US.

"Our dream is to see B.BéNI Jewelry sold in boutiques and department stores across the country. We are targeting stores that carry better quality merchandise. Our jewelry is a made in the USA and made with all the best 'ingredients' so we want shops that represent that commitment."

B.BéNI specializes in three types of Christian jewelry:

Bracelets: Their solid brass charm bangles, beaded bangles and gemstone cuff bangles are richly plated in sterling silver, 24K Russian gold, or rose gold finish. Lacquer finish protects and prevents wear. They are adorned with various solid brass beads in various finishes, various semi~precious gemstone beads, genuine Swarovski and Preciosa crystals, and fire polished Czech glass beads. All pieces are Nickel free and crafted in the USA.

Necklaces: Necklaces combine solid brass chain, clasps & findings with Czech glass bead chain and various solid pewter pendants and connectors. Semi-precious stones and crystals that are either Swarorvski or Preciosa add a touch of sparkle. Richly plated in sterling silver, 24K Russian gold, or rose gold finish. Lacquer finish protects and prevents wear. All pieces are Nickel free and crafted in the USA. The necklace lengths vary and all necklaces may be extended with a choice of two styles of necklace extenders.

Key Rings: Solid pewter key ring charms are richly plated in sterling silver. The ring and connector loops are all stainless steel. Lacquer finish protects and prevents wear.

Questions and requests for more information should be directed to bbenijewelry@gmail.com. More information is available at the company's website at http://www.bbeni.com.

About B.BéNI:

B.BéNI is a New England based inspirational jewelry company that is dedicated to providing customers with the highest quality of faith inspired jewelry. The company is based in Rhode Island.

Forgiveness Leads To Improved Physical, Mental And Spiritual Health States Kristi Burchfiel, Author Of 'Piecing Together Forgiveness'

Kristi Burchfiel is a Christian devotional author and speaker who believes in ‘living in the world while living out the word’

In a recent offering on the Inc.com website, an article written by Justin Bariso cited a study that appeared in the Journal of Health Psychology. In that study it was shown that forgiveness - of self and others - reduced the effect of stress, which improved physical and mental health.

Loren Toussaint of Luther College authored the study and, as mentioned in the Inc. article, in an interview in Time Magazine he stated that, ". . . Forgiveness takes that bad connection between stress and mental illness and makes it zero."

In the same article, Karen Swartz, M. D,. of Johns Hopkins Hospital was quoted as saying, "There is an enormous physical burden to being hurt and disappointed."

An article on the Mayo Clinic website entitled "Forgiveness: letting go of grudges and bitterness" mentions a number of health benefits related to forgiveness, among them "lower blood pressure, fewer symptoms of depression, stronger immune system and improved heart health."

Forgiveness, of self and others, can thereby provide real benefits across the physical, the mental and the spiritual arenas. Can the simple act of forgiveness really improve the condition of one's mind, body and soul that much?

Kristi Burchfiel, author of 'Piecing Together Forgiveness: A Study Of Philemon' believes it can do all of this and much more. In her latest book, readers will learn not only the principles of forgiveness, but also how they can be applied to impact one's life and relationships. Readers will find answers and see how to piece together a beautiful picture of Godly forgiveness.

"God created us to be relational; we are meant to be in relationships with other people, friends, loved ones, even God Himself," Burchfiel explains. “Because of this, it’s no surprise that broken relationships that have resulted in grudges and bitterness will have serious physical and mental consequences. Forgiveness, at its core, is about restoring relationships. When we are able to forgive others and to be forgiven, we are taking steps to restore the relationships that God has given us in our lives.” Burchfiel continues, “We need forgiveness to restore our relationship with God first and foremost. Then, as we forgive others, we experience the medical benefits for ourselves, as well as the potential for restored relationships with others.”

Kristi writes applicable Bible Studies. Her other works include ‘Without Regrets: A Study Of Ecclesiastes,’ ‘The Decay Within: A Study of Amos,’ and an ebook series entitled ‘The Daily Devotional Series’, which includes eleven devotionals covering multiple books in the Bible including Genesis, John, Psalm and the New Testament. Several years ago, God led Kristi Burchfiel through some difficult times in her personal life. Only by studying and applying the truths found in the Bible did she find the answers she needed to get her life back on track.  She now works daily to continue putting those truths into practice.  She is passionate about studying the Bible and invites others to share in the peace of God through the truths found in God’s word. As a Christian devotional author, she believes in living in the world while living out the Word.

"Just knowing the word of God is not enough," Burchfiel said, "we must live it out.”

In addition to writing Christian devotionals, Kristi speaks on a variety of different topics including sections from her Bible study books, devotionals, life lessons, personal testimony and the book publishing process. She has been the keynote speaker for women's conferences, led workshops during all day events, and delivered the message in worship services and Sunday School classes. She has also spoken with literacy groups and has appeared numerous times in interviews for websites, radio, and television. She also provides an online devotional for the day and other Bible tools.

Kristi Burchfiel is available for media interviews and speaking engagements. She can be reached using the information below, or by email at k_burchfiel@yahoo.com. More information is available at her website. All Kristi’s books, Christian devotionals, Bible studies for men and women and ebooks are available at Amazon.com and at her website at http://www.kristiburchfiel.com.

Profile:
Kristi Burchfiel grew up in Valley Center, Kansas and received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee, Oklahoma. She and her husband, D Burchfiel have been married for 18 years. She resides in Wichita Kansas where D is the Campus Pastor of Summit Church.

Snyder's father was shot down over Europe during WWII. He evaded capture and was missing in action for seven months. 'Shot Down' is a dramatic retelling of the story surrounding that event

Military books, especially books about aviation, are very popular with American book buyers. While many of these military books are well researched, very few of them are written by people who can provide us with a view from inside the story, having been there as the story unfolded. Award winning author Steve Snyder has managed to give readers just that.

Steve Snyder’s father, Howard Snyder, was a B-17 pilot stationed in England during World War II.  On February 8, 1944, his plane, the B-17 Susan Ruth (named after Snyder's daughter), was shot down over the French/Belgium border after a mission to bomb Frankfurt, Germany. The book tells the true story of events leading up to and following that harrowing day. Of the ten man crew, some died, some ended up in prison camps, and some evaded capture. What makes this aviation book unique is the varied, detailed, and amazing story of what happened to each crew member, in particular Howard Snyder who evaded capture and was missing in action for seven months.

Readers are given the opportunity to read the letters and documents that were exchanged before and after the Susan Ruth was shot down. 'Shot Down' is filled with photos that enhance the presentation of these extraordinary WW II events that must never be forgotten.

Snyder completed his recent European tour to film locations in Belgium where the events in the book took place and to interview local people about these events. He traveled to Munich, Germany to film an interview with Hans Berger, the German Luftwaffe pilot who shot down his father's bomber, the B-17 Susan Ruth. Michael Palmer of RacefanTV accompanied him as Director of Photography. The film is currently in production.

'Shot Down' has received numerous high profile awards:

Reviewers have praised 'Shot Down'. Publishers Weekly stated, "This is a great introduction to the history of the U.S. air war in Europe, humanized by the experience of a single bomber crew." The European Center of Military History said, "Steve Snyder has reached a level of scholarship few amateur historians achieve." Foreword Reviews called it a "masterful book." Midwest Book Review called it "An inherently fascinating and deftly written account."
