Alexa's Top Picks for Spring '22

Alexa wearing Cat Pendant by Beth Millner Jewelry
Cat Pendant - Your favorite jewelry will enhance your outfits and express something about your personality. This pendant says it all: I love my cats! It’s also cute and stylish enough to wear with more formal outfits.
Sunflower Ring handmade by Beth Millner Jewelry
Sunflower Ring - The use of texture and color in this ring make it a real work of art. I love the fabric details pressed into the copper to imitate the look of sunflower seeds. I recently gifted this ring to my sister-in-law, who needed a little bit of sunshine in her life!

More about Alexa

What was your first piece of Beth Millner Jewelry?
"I started working at BMJ a few months before my wedding, so my first purchases were Mini Superior Gales earrings for my bridesmaids and custom wedding bands for my husband and me."

What is your favorite part of working at BMJ?
"I really enjoy the team of people I work with! It’s great to be part of a multi-talented team that supports each other and shares my love for art, nature, and community."

What is your favorite way to enjoy nature?
"I like hiking and exploring new trails through the woods. The more remote, the better! In winter, I also love to downhill ski. Traveling to new hills and mountains is a great way to get a new perspective on the world."

What do you like to do when you're feeling creative?
"I really like drawing and hand-lettering. Lately I’ve been getting into printmaking and carving my drawings into stamps in a process called linocut."

What's your favorite thing to listen to?
"I’ve been listening to lots of different podcasts lately, but the one I never get sick of is RadioLab, an investigative journalism show that covers all kinds of stories about how our world works."
