A Minimalist's Guide to Beth Millner Jewelry

Taylor's Staff Picks

We all know the beautiful designs Beth Millner Jewelry is known for: layered landscapes, adorable creatures, and detailed trees. So, when I started working here, I was surprised to see all of the options outside of these categories. I instantly gravitated towards these simple and abstract pieces. Being somewhat of a minimalist, I often go for jewelry that can pair easily with everything in my closet. Below are my favorite BMJ pieces that would fit into any minimalist's wardrobe.

Copper Lake Superior Agate Pendant

Beth's collection of copper laced agates were the first pieces that caught my eye. Tiny glints of copper within the agate texture makes for one of the most interesting stones I've seen. The small drop pendants are my favorite use of this stone. I love that the stones come right from Lake Superior, so while wearing this pendant I'm carrying a piece of the UP with me.

Mini Rustic Upper Peninsula of Michigan Ring

This ring is another subtle way to represent the UP. I like that the Upper Peninsula outline is small enough as not to clash with anything I pair it with. I absolutely love the look of double-banded rings on my thumb. It feels bold and funky, just how a thumb ring should.

Textured Silver Ring

Another ring I've been eyeing is this 3mm silver band. The hammered texture (called Moonscape in our online shop) allows the look to remain simple without being boring. A true everyday ring. 

Textured Copper Dot Earrings

The copper dot earrings are cute in every texture, but my personal favorite is the hammered. Noticing a pattern here? I'm in love with Beth's hammered texture jewelry. Maybe it's because you can only see the detail up close. Maybe it's because that texture reflects light with a little sparkle. Either way, I want all of the hammered texture jewelry!

Silver Hammered Bangle

My final staff pick is, surprise, another hammered textured piece. Thin bangles are an item of delicate beauty. Wearing these bangles solo adds a touch of elegance to an outfit. I always make sure to pair this item with fine dining, a glass of wine, or musical theater.

Although our selection of minimal jewelry is much larger, these five are at the top of my list. Some are funky and some are elegant, but all are simply beautiful. You can find even more minimal jewelry in the basic collection of our web store, here.

Copper Agate Ring by Beth Millner
Traveling in Your Twenties by Sarah Babcock

Although I am still in the early years of my twenties, I have had so many amazing experiences because of travel. I believe getting out of your comfort zone and exploring new places, go hand in hand on the journey to “growing up.” Originally from a small town like so many others, I did not have the opportunity to travel
