Pairing Pendants To Craft a One of a Kind Look

Upper Peninsula Charm and Presque Isle Autumn Shoreline Pendant by Beth Millner Jewelry

If you're a fan of Beth Millner Jewelry odds are you value individuality. Our small batch  jewelry is handcrafted so that each piece is unique. One way we love to personalize our necklaces is by pairing larger pendants with our small charms. If you gave or received a BMJ pendant for the holidays and want to expand the collection, this is an affordable and customizable way to do that!

1. Initial Charms 

Adding a hand carved initial charm can be for the name of the wearer or perfect for those with children or new babies! We love the idea of adding an initial charm for each child. So sweet and perfect for mother's day. They pair very nicely with our Springtime Mother and Child Chickadee Sterling Silver Pendant.

This darkened tiny loopy chain provides a relaxed look to allow the pendant and charm to really make the statement.

2. Tiny Bird Charm 

Perfect for bird watchers and lovers. This charm can be paired easily with most any pendant, but is super adorable paired with our Heritage trail pendant. The Heritage Trail is a great place for bird watching with its lush forest and mixed terrain. 

The way this sterling silver box chain reflects the light compliments the shine of both the pendant and charm.

3. Small Spring Daffodil Charm

Daffodils are among the first flowers to pop up when spring finally arrives in the Upper Peninsula which is why Beth wanted to make them. Pairing the daffodil with a 4 seasons tree piece is a delightful addition. The combination of the silver charm and the Summer in Michigan Copper Tree Pendant gives the contrasted look of wearing mixed metal without the cost of a mixed metal pendant. 

This darkened box chain brings out the darkened patina of the silver charm and ties the mixed metal look together, nicely complimenting the copper of the pendant as well.

4. Reversible Tiny Tree Mixed Metal Charm

There's just something about being surrounded by trees. For anyone infatuated with the forest this pairing of our Conifer Tree Landscape Pendant with a tiny tree charm is too perfect. The charm is silver on the backside so it can easily be switched up and paired with many pendants!

This darkened box chain makes the shading of the conifer pendant and cutout tree really pop.

5. Small Spring Buttercup Charm 

Buttercups are also one of the first flowers of spring and represent the hope of new life. It is shown here paired with the Grown in the Upper Peninsula Pendant Mixed Metal Pendant. The charm gives the pendant a lovely feminine touch and serves as a reminder that spring will always come eventually at the end of a UP winter! 

The sterling silver box chain adds a traditional look to a truly unique pairing and catches the light with the pendant.

6. Tiny Upper Peninsula Charm 

Last but certainly not least we have a locally inspired pairing! The tiny UP charm is a great way to keep the gorgeous place we call home close to your heart. It is so heartwarming paired with the Presque Isle Autumn Shoreline Pendant or any of the locally inspired pieces.

The darkened box chain compliments the texture of both these daintily intricate beauties.

Nice to meet you! My name is Kris Goymerac, and I’m a UP resident, world traveler, and a self-proclaimed Yooper Ambassador. I don’t have many chances to spread my love of the UP, “the 906,” to other countries these days, so I feel very grateful that I’m able this summer to instead spread my love of Beth Millner Jewelry while exploring all of the secret little niches of the Hiawatha National Forest, and other UP places I haven’t gotten around to discovering yet.
