Beth Millner Jewelry and Stormy Kromer Giveaway

The Winner

Congratulations to Jacob Juliot who won the Stormy Kromer/ Beth Millner Jewelry giveaway! Thank you to all who entered. It has been a blast celebrating this fellow U.P. made company with all of you. 

 

A Match Made-In-Michigan

Having been long-time admirers of Stormy Kromer, as we share so many core values, a collaboration seemed natural. Their Ironwood, Michigan factory is just a 3 hour drive west from our shop. 

Stormy Kromer represents the outdoor lifestyle characteristic to our region and our people’s high standards for quality materials and products. We are proud to announce a collaborative giveaway with this iconic Upper Peninsula company.

The Stormy Kromer Story

Back in 1903, the Original Stormy Kromer cap was built with quality fabric, carefully handcrafted in the U.S. It was authentic, rugged and durable – perfect for Stormy, a hard-working Wisconsin railroad engineer.

After repeatedly losing his cap on the windy locomotive, he asked his wife Ida to make him a new one, with a snug, pull-down earband to keep it in place. The popularity of that first cap launched a small family business.

More than 100 years later, Stormy Kromer products are still made by a family-run business with the same quality and care. Only now they’re a bit more comfortable and a lot more fashionable – perfect for, well, just about anybody.

The Beth Millner Jewelry Story 

Beth Millner Jewelry was started in 2007 in the corner of Beth's tiny kitchen while she was a student attending Northern Michigan University.  After graduating from the Art & Design program, Beth traveled the country for several months showing at art and music festivals.  

Five years later, in 2012, she opened her own storefront in downtown Marquette, Michigan.  Our mission is to provide artisan designed jewelry fabricated in a socially and environmentally responsible way. 

Each piece of jewelry is carefully crafted in the studio upstairs of the storefront in Marquette, Michigan with a high level of attention to detail and craftsmanship. Locals and visitors alike have come to know Beth Millner Jewelry as a staple shop for high-quality, meaningful gifts and a fun, friendly place to visit in Marquette.

A Minimalist's Guide to Beth Millner Jewelry

July 18, 2019

We all know the beautiful designs Beth Millner Jewelry is known for: layered landscapes, adorable creatures, and detailed trees. So, when I started working here, I was surprised to see all of the options outside of these categories. I instantly gravitated towards these simple and abstract pieces. Being somewhat of a minimalist, I often go for jewelry that can pair easily with everything in my closet. Below are my favorite BMJ pieces that would fit into any minimalist's wardrobe.

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 the 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.
