Have you been wanting to make masks to help with needs in your community for personal protection equipment? 

At Beth Millner Jewelry, we have put together a free pattern for both masks and removable aluminum nose pieces. We've listed some tips and tricks on how to make them below. If you'd like to check out our website, we have masks available for purchase on a sliding scale. This allows anyone, regardless of financial ability, to purchase masks and supplies.

One exciting aspect of our pattern is that it allows for the nosepiece to be removed and replaced whenever it is needed. This ensures that the mask will have the comfort of a flexible nose strip, but will last much longer than similar masks that use household materials like pipe cleaners. You can purchase nosepieces from us on a sliding scale on our website.

1. UPDATED June 17th, 2020 Here is a pattern the staff at Beth Millner Jewelry put together. It was inspired by other local patterns being used: Mask Sewing Pattern with Filter Pocket and Removable Nosepiece. 

2. It's easy to make cloth ties with T-shirt yarn! Click here to learn how. (Note: these ties are best for personal use only, as they can become tangled when washed together.) We have masks with ties like these available on our website here if you'd like an example. 

3. A great tip is to thread one continuous tie! You can check out this listing for an example, or search our entire collection of cloth masks.

4. Although you can file your metal nosepieces with an emery board, it is easy to round them with scissors as well.

This video can show you how! If you'd like to purchase aluminum nosepieces from us you can do that here

Jewelry Ambassador Kristen's Unboxing Blog Post
Unboxing Your Fears and Acknowledging the Gift Inside by Jewelry Ambassador Kristen

Before I signed on as an ambassador, one of the promises I made was that I would record and post an “unboxing video” to social media. In exchange for promoting a business I already love, as an ambassador, I would receive some free jewelry pieces, and I’d be sharing with my network of friends the moment I opened my gifts. I definitely thought that I was getting the better half of the deal until I remembered how uncomfortable I am being recorded on video. There’s a reason folks mostly see videos of birds and other wildlife on my pages!

Growth Happens Outside of Your Comfort Zone! by Jewelry Ambassador Grace

When Beth and the team created the Wildflower pieces this Spring I instantly felt a great connection to these pieces and could not turn them down!  Spring is a sign of change and growth and I feel like that these pieces give us that opportunity to embrace that change and feel confident in allowing the growth and change to occur.
