A Bee-autiful Collection and Collaboration

May 26, 2015

As you walk in the door of Beth Millner Jewelry in downtown Marquette, you may hear hammering or sawing mixed with laughter drifting down from the spiral staircase into the showroom.  This is local at its finest, where each piece of jewelry is handcrafted by NMU Art & Design alumni Beth and her small team of assistants (a mix of art alumni and current students) in the studio above the shop, using recycled metals and eco-friendly practices. 

In keeping with the heart of the shop’s community minded mission, Beth Millner Jewelry is proud to partner with various organizations to design and craft exclusive lines of fundraiser jewelry.  A portion of the proceeds from these pieces are donated to the organizations, which have included the U.P. Diabetes Outreach Network, the Alzheimer’s Association, a memorial art scholarship, Bay Cliff Science Camp and most recently the MooseWood Nature Center with the new honeycomb series.

   

The launch of Beth’s new honeycomb series this spring comes at a time when bee education and awareness is brought to a national stage.  As a long time bee admirer, Beth is excited to donate 10% of the proceeds of any honeycomb jewelry to the MooseWood Nature Center in Marquette, Michigan for their efforts in establishing and maintaining a pollinator garden and continued bee and environmental education.  

 

MooseWood Nature Center is a fantastic non-profit family friendly center that celebrates the natural beauty of the Upper Peninsula through action and education.  Open on the weekends, the center is a great stop to make with your family as you picnic or play at Marquette's popular Presque Isle Park.

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 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.

Look here for more information about resizing items that you have already received.

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 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 hopefully they provides their ring size.

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.

Small 5.5-6 14-15

Large 6.5-7 16.5-18
X-Large 7-7.5 18-19

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.

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.
