Northern Exposure Regional Art Competition

The William Bonifas Fine Arts Center located in Escanaba, MI is a hub of creativity in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. They offer workshops, classes, theatrical productions, and exhibitions featuring a variety of artists. Exhibitions are free of charge so take advantage if you find yourself in the area. 

Northern Exposure Exhibition at Bonifas

The Northern Exposure Regional Art Competition is an annual extravaganza that brings together artists from the U.P. region for an exhibition and competition to increase attention to their work. This year $3,000 in prizes were awarded in addition to press and media coverage. 

Beth entered a piece titled "Nocturnal" for the show and received one of three Arts Network Awards. which can be viewed through December 21 at the Bonifas. Nocturnal is displayed alongside an intriguing collection of works from other artists around the region and is definitely worth a visit! 

Nocturnal Metalwork Piece by Beth Millner At Northern Exposure Art Show

Unlike most of Beth's work which is flat, "Nocturnal" has multiple 3-D layers of silver, brass, and copper. The concept plays off the predator/ prey relationship. The color variation across the horizon of this piece was done using a patina to mimic the night sky. Little gold flecks were added as stars. If you are intrigued by the piece, you can stop in our shop after the holidays to see it in person! 

Art in the Upper Peninsula continues to grow and is supported by the thriving creative community and events like this. Attending and sharing such events are great ways to show your support and allow the artists of your community to continue creating. 

If you make it out to the show before it closes let us know what you think! And as always stay updated on all the latest lovelies via our Facebook and Instagram pages updated daily.

Mother's Day at BMJ
Mother's Day at BMJ

How can we possibly begin to say "thank you" to the people who have loved us unconditionally? While they deserve much more than one day per year, Mother's Day is a time for us to give back to the people who have given the most. Perhaps a piece of jewelry isn't enough to show them our immense gratitude and love, but the sentiment behind it can come close.

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 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.

Look here for more information about resizing items that you have already received.

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 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 hopefully they provides their ring size.

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.
