Three Steps to Winning our First-Ever Instagram Photo Contest! - Beth Millner Jewelry

Three Steps to Winning our First-Ever Instagram Photo Contest!

February 20, 2015

Holy Wah! We're using Instagram!


As a celebration of our decision to join the modern world, we're giving away a "Love in the Deep of Winter" goodie bag to one lucky Instagrammer!

Also, it's the middle of February, the snow is up past our eyeballs, and there's a windchill of about -14F.  So, we want to brighten someone's day!

The prize for the best Instagram photo that uses the hashtag #BethMillnerJewelry is: 

A Small Sterling Silver Winter Tree Pendant with a tiny Kelly Gilligan Heart Charm and a darkened 18" Silver Box Chain!

 

Oh! And some really delightful bean-to-bar dark chocolate that we got from Everyday Wines!  

Here's what you've got to do:

1. Follow us on Instagram: @BethMillnerJewelry

                                   Tap "+follow"

2. Post a photo on Instagram that shows off you and your favorite piece of Beth Millner Jewelry, and...

3. Use the hashtag #BethMillnerJewelry

                                                  

That's it! It's easy!

When we hit 100 uses of #BethMillnerJewelry, the staff here will pick out the winning photo based on the following loosely judged criteria:

1. Good show of the piece

Blurry picture of the necklace but you've got a nice smile? Thanks for the tag! We're glad you're happy today! ...Nice shot of the necklace AND your lovely teeth? Hooray! 

 

Pretty silver ring AND potatoes? I dig it.

 

 

 

2. Displaying your regional flair, or creating a sense of place.

Where are you, and how are you connected to your Place?  All of Beth's Jewelry is inspired by our Place, Michigan's forested Upper Peninsula and the rocky shores of Lake Superior.  Show us your happy place!

 

          

In the last Facebook Photo Contest, we loved Anne Marie's photo showing off her UP pendant while living in Switzerland!  

3. Following the theme of "Love in the Deep of Winter." 

We love Love! It's the warmth in our hearts that gets us through these dark Northern winters. Also, we love winter! (or at least Andrea really does) What do you do that celebrates winter? What do you love?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can submit up to three photos for the contest (but feel free to tag as many as you want!) Each photo is an chance to win! 

Bonus Points that do not necessarily guarantee winning but we think are cool:

  • Multiple pieces of Beth's work--show us your bling! :)
  • Multiple individuals wearing Beth's jewelry in one photo 
  • General Creativity/Quirkiness/Goofiness
  • Also using the hashtag #PureMichigan

 

May the Odds be Ever in Your Favor!

 

 

Be well, do good work, and keep in touch--@themaskedbird

Sizing
Ring Sizing

Purchase this ring sizer to help determine your ring size. This sizing tool is most accurate for double band rings and bands 6mm and under.

Fingers can change size due to many circumstances. The best way to get an accurate size is to check the size a couple of different times throughout a several day period to determine your best size. The majority of our rings can be resized, but if the ring has a stone setting other than a diamond, it probably cannot be resized unless otherwise noted in the item listing.

Some of our rings with stones are shown with the stone not set in order for us to size the ring to your specifications and set the stone afterwards. This avoids damage to the stone during sizing. Reference the individual ring listings for more details. Wide Bands 7mm and above have more friction against the finger and will need to be ordered a little larger.

Our double band rings fit like a narrow band. When getting sized for a double band ring, you can get sized for a ring that is narrow.

When getting your finger sized, inform jeweler of the width band you are intending on purchasing and rely on them to determine your ring size.

If you need a ring resized that you have already purchased please contact us. 

Engagement Ring Sizing

Purchase this ring sizer to help determine your ring size. This sizing tool is most accurate for double band rings and bands 6mm and under.

There are many sneaky options for getting the size right but the best way is to have their finger sized by a professional.

You may be able to sneak one of their rings and bring it into a jewelry store and ask them to check the size.

Beth Millner Jewelry has wish lists too, so they could come in to the store and fill out a wish list and we will try to get their ring size written down.

Bracelet & Cuff Sizing

Measure wrist circumference. Take your measurement just above the wrist above bone.

Use the chart below to determine the correct size.

The bracelets we make are designed to fit comfortably, but if a looser fit is preferred, the next size up may be suitable.

Size Wrist Measurement (Inches) Wrist Measurement (cm)
Small 5.5-6 14-15
Medium 6-6.5 15-16.5
Large 6.5-7 16.5-18
X-Large 7-7.5 18-19
XX-Large 7.5-8 19-20.5
Bangle Sizing

Bangle Size is determined by hand size, rather than wrist size

Measure hand size by tucking your thumb in, just like when trying on a bangle. Measure around the thickest part of the hand while in this position.

Use the chart below to determine the correct bangle size.

Bangle Bracelet Sizing Beth Millner Jewelry Bangle Bracelet Sizing Beth Millner Jewelry
Size Hand Measurement (inches) Hand Measurement (cm)
Small 7-8 18-20
Medium 8-9 20-23
Large 9-9.5 23-24
Pendant & Earring Sizing

When determining the size of pendant or earrings you would like to purchase, please reference the item description which includes the size of the piece.

Also, there will be an image with a hand in the picture to help visualize the size.

When choosing a piece for another person, we find that our customers choose pieces that are similar to their overall stature.

People that are shorter and small tend to like smaller items, tall slender people tend to like our longer larger pieces.

Chain Length

When picking out a chain, 18 inch is the most common length.

This would cause the pendant to sit between the collar bones.
