I’ve had the name Chester picked out for my first dog since I graduated high school. I always knew he would be a golden retriever because I had several growing up, and I love the breed. Although I had the freedom to do what I wanted as an 18-year-old, I knew I had to wait until I was ready, to get Chester. I needed the right amount of free time, and the right amount of funds.
I met my boyfriend, a Yooper, in December of 2016. Our friendship flourished for a little under a year, and then he brought me to Marquette to meet his family and friends. Being from the Grand Rapids area, the U.P. was instantly such a different atmosphere, but I loved it. His family and friends were so welcoming, and the scenery in Marquette is unmatched.
Fast forward a year and a half and his mom texts that a friend of hers is going to have a litter. Her first litter, and her last! It was the perfect opportunity—I would get him in the summer, while I was only working a few hours a week at my current job, and when I get back to school, I would only be taking a couple classes before graduation. It was perfect. I found out in March that I would be getting Chester, who was born on May 11th. I spent those months non-stop planning and preparing to make sure I would have everything I could need for him.
I got to pick Chester out when he was six weeks old, and the 5 hour drive was full of anticipation. I had no idea how I would choose just one out of a litter of 7 adorable puppies! The time went by so slow on that drive. When it was finally time to meet the litter, they were all asleep in the yard, snuggling in the cutest little puppy pile I had ever seen. Then there were some little piggy grunts coming towards me, and one of the pups came to say hello! He was the sweetest boy, staying by my side, loving to be held and putting his head on my shoulder. It was easier than I thought. I didn’t really have to choose—he chose me!
In mid-July, it was finally time to pick him up, and I have no idea how I survived that long of a wait! I brought him home, and my entire family fell in love with him too.
He’s almost six months old now, and he is the best part of my life. Every time I walk in the door, I’m attacked with kisses and affection. I couldn’t ever imagine being without him now.
When I received the Beth Millner Ambassadorship, I was immediately drawn to my Fox on a Starry Night Ring because it reminds me so much of Chester. So, in my mind it’s not a fox at all—it’s just Chester! I never want to take it off because it holds such a special place in my heart, just like my fur baby! And 20 years from now, I’ll be able to look down at this ring on my finger, and I will be able to see Chester still with me.

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.
