We are excited to announce Abby as one of our new Summer 2019 Brand Ambassadors.
"My name is Abby Jacques, and I live just outside of Jackson Hole, WY in a small town called Dubois. My boyfriend and I just bought an acre of land in the woods that we are in the process of building a cabin on. I would love to tell you that we made this decision because it was our life long dream—which it is—but as with most decisions in our life, it was completely dictated by the love for our three-year-old Alaskan Husky, Elektra. We hope to have more dogs just like her soon.
I was first introduced to Beth’s work when I attended Northern Michigan University. I fell in love with the philosophy behind her company, and the feeling of home that she instills in each piece. As an Ecology major with an Outdoor Recreation minor, I am no stranger to the wilderness that is the Upper Peninsula. I couldn't get enough of the trees, the rivers, and of course, the lakes. Lake Superior will always have a strong hold on my heart. It was because of my experiences at NMU that I packed up my car and headed west in search of more wild places.
Since my time at NMU, I have worked as a camp chef in California, a snowmobile guide in Yellowstone, a dog musher in Alaska, and just about everything in between. The Tetons, however, were the one place I kept going back to. I am now settled in Wyoming, and own a small social media management company. I also keep busy working at a dog boarding and day care facility. I am hoping to build my own tour company once we are more established.
In my free time, I go hiking, dog mushing, fishing, snowmobiling, bird watching, snowshoeing—pretty much anything that gets me outside. I also love playing the fiddle and crafting.
One of my favorite pieces of Beth's is her Picnic Rocks Pendant. I have been on that beach in just about every type of weather. From soaking up sun in the summer, studying on tailgates in the fall, to sipping coffee and having heart-to-hearts as the waves roared in the winter—it was my go to spot. This pendant reminds me of so many memories. The mixed metals in the pendant perfectly show the diversity of stones you can find on Lake Superior shores. Knowing that the metals are recycled and some are even harvested in Michigan make it even more special. All of her jewelry is breathtaking and for a Michigander girl, her jewelry represents home."

BMJ mixed metal pendants are my faves, but this one may be the new #1 in my collection. Sunflowers give off such a happy, cheerful vibe that I decided this was the piece that I wanted to wear to help me get through my first chemotherapy session. And you know what? It totally worked. My day sucked a little less wearing this little piece of sunshine. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us - I'll be your biggest fan for life!
I love how Beth's double-banded rings can make a bold statement but still feel light and fit so well. They're my go-to rings.
These are the best for polishing my jewelry
I recently purchased the hummingbird pendant and earrings. I absolutely love them and have gotten so many compliments. Very high quality.
Perfect birthday gift for my daughter-in-law :)
I love this pendant. My husband purchased it for my 50th birthday. We are Minnesotans and we love the UP. The fact that this stone is from the UP makes it very special. And I love that the pendant is reversable!
I love my new earrings, they are such a beautiful shape and color. They are a perfect addition to my Beth Milder collection of jewelry
I am so happy to have ordered this unique piece! as someone with metal allergies it is hard to find silver jewelry that doesn't cause me to break out and I have never had a problem through Beth Millner! Supporting a small local business is an added bonus!
Fifty years ago in September, I began my first semester at
Michigan Technological University.
Superior, its forests, rivers, and rock completely captured my mind and heart.
I return each year with my partner to continue to explore the beautiful, the wild, and epic of this place.
As a remembrance of all that it has meant, and continues to mean to me, I purchased your beautifully crafted “Two Hearted River” pendant.
Thank you to all of the artisans who contributed to this stunning piece.
