Meet The Beth Millner Jewelry Brand Ambassadors!

Whether you're local to the Marquette area or not, our brand ambassadors have something to share with you! Meet the two women pioneering our first ever Brand ambassadorship. 

They are fellow nature jewelry enthusiasts excited to share their take on all we do at BMJ. Find links to their social media outlets where you can follow along this journey with them. 

Beth Millner Jewelry New Brand Ambassador Erin Potter

Erin Potter

My name is Erin Potter and I live in Trowbridge Park in Marquette, MI.  I have lived in Marquette for almost 18 years. I live with my adorable dog, Scout. My friends Scott and Julie are staying with me for the summer along with Scout's best friend, their dog Howie.  

I have worked at Marquette Pediatric Dentistry for six years and love it!  I am also a server at Zephyr Bar and feel blessed to work with a fantastic group of people; it is a pleasure to serve phenomenal wine, cocktails, and food with those crazy humans!

An avid reader, I spend a lot of my free time with my nose glued to a book.  My favorite genre is historical fiction, but I rarely meet a book I don’t like, especially if it was recommended by a trusted friend.  I like to cook, walk in the woods with Scout, play my ukulele and sing, fly fish, and camp. Most of all I enjoy spending quality time with cherished family and friends.

Most people likely wouldn’t guess I love to shoot handguns.  It is something special I did with my dad while growing up. We still enjoy going, but I was definitely a better shot when I was young!  

I wanted to be a Brand Ambassador for Beth Millner Jewelry for many reasons. I love supporting local artists in general, but no jeweler has ever caught my attention and maintained my affection for so long.  Not only does Beth’s jewelry perfectly capture the rugged beauty of the Upper Peninsula, her designs showcase it with a clear love of nature, understanding of wilderness, and passion for living things.  I have many Beth Millner pieces including pendants, rings, and so many earrings! When I heard about the Brand Ambassadorship I couldn’t wait to apply! Who wouldn’t want to help tell the community about her favorite jeweler?

What has me the most excited for this Brand Ambassadorship is writing for the Beth Millner Jewelry blog.  I love to take photos and write but have always been too lazy to have a blog of my own. I have never done anything like this before; what a fun adventure it will be!  And let’s be honest, I’m really excited to get some new pieces. My desire for BMJ appears to be insatiable.

My favorite pieces of Beth Millner Jewelry are my owl earrings and pendant.  I bought the earrings from Beth when she was still working out of her house! I have misplaced them a few times, but they have always come back to me. My wonderful older brother, Chris, bought me the matching pendant just because he knew I would love it. The three owls will forever be cherished and mean the most to me even though my collection is becoming what could be best be described as vast.

Meet Bekah Walsh one of Beth Millner Jewelry's Brand Ambassadors

Rebekah Walsh

I live in Baltimore, Maryland where I work in publications for a global health non-profit. In my free time I can be found stooping with my dog, husband, and neighbors (a communal Baltimore activity in warmer months) and watching musical theatre.

Something most people would find surprising about me is that sarcasm is my true first language; many a stranger has been caught off guard!

What I love most about Beth Millner Jewelry is the nature inspired look and strong craftsmanship. I'm excited to share a small, local business to new audiences who may have never discovered these gorgeous pieces otherwise.

My favorite pieces of Beth Millner Jewelry are her twig rings. They are dainty but detailed, perfect for my own style which I often describe as "classic with a twist."

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.
