Marquette History Center Fundraiser Piece

The Marquette Regional History Center is celebrating 100 years of service to the Marquette community, and here at Beth Millner we're celebrating with a centennial fundraiser pendant! Now available in-store and online.
The Design
The design will feature Harlow's Wooden Man - a local celebrity, and the namesake of the History Center's quarterly journal. The pendant will be made out of recycled sterling silver, and will include some of Beth's classic landscape designs. The wooden statue currently sits just off the local bike path on private property, but can be seen when the leaves are falling. This was taken into consideration when creating the pendant, and the unique design makes it particularly perfect for anyone who loves Marquette history.
Who is the Wooden Man?
In 1875, Amos Harlow was walking through the forest when he stumbled upon a cedar tree that appeared to have certain human-like qualities. He cut it down, added some additions, and Harlow's Wooden Man was born.
The Wooden Man has lived a quiet life since 1875, but was married to Ada Mapes in 1891, and is an established poet (although some say his work was written by a man named Robert C. Clark.)
The History Center
As with our other fundraise pieces, $50 from the sale of each pendant will go to support the Marquette Regional History Center. The center has an extensive permanent collection, which, according to their website, "includes artifacts from the Prehistoric copper culture through contemporary times." In addition, they have special exhibits throughout the year. Currently, they're hosting The Changing Face of Medicine: A History of U.P. Healthcare, and will begin hosting Centennials in January. They also curate a research library, run family-friendly educational programs, host school visits, and offer free outreach programs for events. 
We are so excited to partner with the history center, and celebrate all of the incredible things they do for our community! We hope that you'll keep an eye out for this whimsical pendant (debuting October 5), and pay the MRHC a visit in the meantime!

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.
