We wanted to introduce you to our summer 2021 ambassadors! We're excited to collaborate with these amazing individuals.
Hannah Shaneberger - "I am a jewelry lover, outdoors enthusiast, poetry writer, & pit bull mama to her dog Fran."
Laura Hrubes - "I grew up in the Marquette area and stayed through college at NMU. While I have since moved away, it will always be home to me. These days I live in SW Wisconsin with my little family and a couple of dogs, a feral cat, and a bunch of chickens. I’m 45, and stay as active and fit as I can. I work as a baker, which I absolutely love as it makes other people really happy. I’m a huge gardener and knitter and make lots of my own clothes, and live in a very rural area in an old Amish farmstead. I used to travel a lot, but these days I spend most of my free time back in the UP, there really isn’t anywhere I would rather be."
Marissa Lindstrom - "I am a graduate of Northern Michigan University, where I graduated summa cum laude with a BA in Environmental Studies and Sustainability and Spanish in December 2019. After graduation, I joined the Peace Corps and traveled to Guatemala, where I served as a rural development facilitator before the worldwide Peace Corps evacuation due to COVID-19.
After returning to the states, I began my career in outdoor education, moving to Murray, Kentucky to work as an interpretive naturalist at the Woodlands Nature Station in Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. I am absolutely in love with my career, as everyday I have the opportunity to share conservation messages with the public, work with rescued native wildlife (such as birds of prey, bobcats, endangered red wolves, and venomous snakes), and encourage other to explore the outdoors and all the beauty and magic it holds. I love when I happen to be wearing jewelry that relates to what I'm interpreting in the field to nature center visitors (such as songbirds, hummingbirds, woodpeckers and butterflies)."
Paige Courtney - "I was raised in Northern Wisconsin and fell in love with the UP over the course of my lifetime, and when I moved out west, I couldn't wait to get back. So I packed up my little pitbull rescue named Zia and my Subaru and made my way back home to the lakes that I swear flow through my veins. I'm a yoga devotee and hope to become a teacher one day. I can't think of a better way to spend my day then on a paddle board, with my pup and a good book on shore waiting for me. I'm an avid rock hunter and beach comber, and when it's too cold, I snowshoe, snowboard and cross country ski. I live to travel and care deeply about this earth. I rise and fall with the sun and change with the seasons."

BMJ mixed metal pendants are my faves, but this one may be the new #1 in my collection. Sunflowers give off such a happy, cheerful vibe that I decided this was the piece that I wanted to wear to help me get through my first chemotherapy session. And you know what? It totally worked. My day sucked a little less wearing this little piece of sunshine. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us - I'll be your biggest fan for life!
I love how Beth's double-banded rings can make a bold statement but still feel light and fit so well. They're my go-to rings.
These are the best for polishing my jewelry
I recently purchased the hummingbird pendant and earrings. I absolutely love them and have gotten so many compliments. Very high quality.
Perfect birthday gift for my daughter-in-law :)
I love this pendant. My husband purchased it for my 50th birthday. We are Minnesotans and we love the UP. The fact that this stone is from the UP makes it very special. And I love that the pendant is reversable!
I love my new earrings, they are such a beautiful shape and color. They are a perfect addition to my Beth Milder collection of jewelry
I am so happy to have ordered this unique piece! as someone with metal allergies it is hard to find silver jewelry that doesn't cause me to break out and I have never had a problem through Beth Millner! Supporting a small local business is an added bonus!
Fifty years ago in September, I began my first semester at
Michigan Technological University.
Superior, its forests, rivers, and rock completely captured my mind and heart.
I return each year with my partner to continue to explore the beautiful, the wild, and epic of this place.
As a remembrance of all that it has meant, and continues to mean to me, I purchased your beautifully crafted “Two Hearted River” pendant.
Thank you to all of the artisans who contributed to this stunning piece.
