We are excited to announce Kate as one of our new Fall 2019 Beth Millner Jewelry Ambassadors!
"I’m Kate and I am from the Grand Rapids area—a small town called Lowell. I’m now finishing my final semester at Central Michigan University where I’m studying Fashion Design. I live here in Mount Pleasant with my boyfriend—who introduced me to Marquette and the U.P.’s beauty—and my puppy, Chester.
I grew up with an intense passion for creating. I was always painting, drawing, knitting, sewing, or really doing anything I could get my hands on. I grew up in a family that enjoyed that type of thing, but no one ever pursued something creative as a career, until I came along!
I’ve discovered so many more interests during my time here at CMU. Recently, I’ve invested in a large loom where I have been weaving entire garments, and will also begin commissioning wall hangings soon, as well. I have taken up photography within the last few years as I’ve been working for CMU’s fashion publication, RAW Magazine. I also worked for the publication as a graphic designer before I was promoted to Creative Director for my final semester. When I was younger I surrounded myself with people who I was always forcing myself to have things in common with, but I’ve been able to find so many like-minded people through my journey at CMU that I’m so thankful for. Surrounding myself with other creators and designers has helped me push my ideas more than I ever anticipated.
With my interest in weaving garments in particular, I’ve began studying how this process is a minimal-waste method. It’s important to me to keep the planet as clean as possible, and fashion is one of the worst industries at doing that. So Beth Millner Jewelry resonates so well with me because of every step the brand takes to stay sustainable. To top it off, I love supporting local businesses, and Beth Millner makes it extremely easy with all of the beautiful pieces!"

My wife loved her gorgeous garnet and silver earrings - perfect gift for a 70th birthday. We are likely your most enthusiastic Minnesota fans of Beth Millner Jewelry. Thank you for your beautiful artistry!
This pendant is absolutely beautiful. The workmanship is stunning. The mixture of 18k gold with the super shiny silver is really eye-catching. I have worn it everyday since I received and have had many compliments. The trees and swirling winds depicted in the pendant certainly say Michigan! I also want to thank Jane and Nina for their advice and help. BMJ is fortunate to have such awesome employees.
These are so versatile and cute. Perfect for anyone wanting to start a collection of Beth Millner jewelry on a budget.
They look great with absolutely anything. Of course, that can be said for any of Beth's jewelry. Love them!

Love, love my new Beth Milner piece. Compliments my valentine one perfectly
The pendant was a gift for my daughter. She absolutely loved it as the silhouette of the dog looks just like her rescue dog.
My ring is absolutely beautiful! It fits perfectly and is very comfortable to wear. Just love it!
Reminds me of the dog we have now!! Puts his butt in air just like that!!❤
I was very pleased with the pendant! It is for my daughters birthday. She has several pieces of Beth’s and enjoys them all! Excellent quality.
