Meet the New Beth Millner Jewelry Brand Ambassadors!

We are excited to begin our second season of brand ambassadorship! Beth Millner Jewelry brand ambassadors are people who live in line with our values of nature loving, sustainability, adventurous spirit, and passion for the arts. The two women chosen for this season certainly embody these special qualities and we are so happy to have them. 

 

Beth Millner Jewelry Brand Ambassador Nora

Meet Nora, Our Local Ambassador 

"I live in Negaunee township in an old 1940s farm house surrounded by about 40 acres, 15 minutes from downtown Marquette, MI with my Husband and three year old daughter. I am an active stay at home mom and I also own a small organic dessert catering business. 

Weather its summer or winter I am always outdoors exploring with my toddler by my side. We paddle the rivers, lakes and hike the trails that inspire Beth's pieces. When Beth came out with the Lake and basin series It got me really excited. I have stories of adventures from each place she has showcased.  I am not one to blog or really write about my life at all but something about these little gems has made me want to write the stories I keep. I truly love to inspire people to get outside,  be active and see all that our surrounding area has to offer with a low impact on the planet. 

Its hard to say what Beth Millner piece I say favorite. Maybe its my “We, Family of three” Tree pendant. I bought this pendant last year in the winter months for myself after drooling over it for years. I really like the recycled gold setting sun on the rolling hills and trees all framed out of recycled silver. Since I have bough this piece I have never taken it off until last week when I gave it back to Beth for her crew to add one more tree making it a family of four for our up coming addition!   

I am an advocate for the reuse and recycling of goods and hardly ever buy new items (besides refurbished, recycled) and the jewelry I wear every day needs to fit into my busy lifestyle and reflect my values. I applied to become a Beth Millner ambassador because she has created a brand I can stand behind based on recycled eco friendly metals and durable yet beautiful nature scenes of places dear to me. Also, you get some great perks and I plan on spoiling me mom and friends with some new jewelry :) "

Beth Millner Jewelry Brand Ambassador Erika

Meet Erika, Our West Coast Brand Ambassador

"I live in Seattle in the cute and quiet neighborhood of Leschi. I’d like to think it’s a secret little gem because it’s away from the hustle and bustle of the city center. Leschi is a neighborhood full of parks and walking trails in the woods and sits along the shore of Lake Washington. There are so many sets of secret stairs climbing the ridge, bistros and cafes scattered throughout, and amazing views of Lake Washington and the Cascade Mountains all around

I’m employed at a small, employee-owned environmental consulting firm in Seattle. I work with local business and industry to ensure their business practices are compliant with regulations and help promote environmental stewardship.

You can find me outside (whether I’m at work or not), I love all recreational activities and I’m an avid snowboarder-turned-skier, cyclist, kayaker and hiker. I’m fortunate to live on Lake Washington and near the foothills of the Cascade Mountain Range, so I end up spending my time between the two.

Ever since I saw an episode of Discovering featuring Beth Millner, I’ve been hooked on her jewelry. I’m so inspired by the craftsmanship that goes into every piece and her ability to highlight the natural landscapes in a beautifully artistic way. I really want to be able to bring her shop to the west coast. While much of the jewelry is inspired by the natural settings in the UP and around Lake Superior, we have very similar natural landscapes in the pacific northwest and I know that the jewelry will resonate with folks in the PNW just as it does in the UP.

I’m most excited to share my love of all the amazing jewelry Beth has created, and to promote shopping small! I love showcasing her pieces and I’m hoping that this brand ambassadorship will help me to reach out to even more people. I’m really lucky to have this opportunity during the holiday season…I now know exactly how to help friends and family who are struggling with gift ideas!

The Lucid Dream Earrings are my favorite piece and I don’t even think it’s worth my time trying to explain why…just look at them, they’re absolutely gorgeous! I love all of Beth’s mixed metal pieces, they highlight the details and intricacies of each piece when a variety of metals are used. These earrings are truly a statement piece, yet they’re so delicate and detailed. I especially love that the materials a locally sourced in Michigan, the obvious benefit being sustainable and equitable sourcing and supporting local business/trade, but also because those materials are all a little reminder of “home”."

Red, pink, buttery yellow, silver and blue. These are all of your options when it comes to the newest selection of Lake Superior Agate Drop Pendants. These agates are a nice medium size, large enough to be eye-catching, but small enough to be an every day piece. Grab a piece of the lake before it freezes over for the winter and hold it close to your heart.

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.
