Drawing inspiration from it's name as well as unique sandy banks, the Two Hearted River locket was born.
Beth designed this photo locket just in time for Valentine's Day, featuring a hemlock tree couple. Tree couples are representative of strong partnerships with deep roots, standing tall on the sandy banks of a river.
After the locket was released, Beth simplified the design and now offers the Two Hearted River as a pendant as well.
The Two Hearted River gained notoriety beyond the local fisherman after being featured in Ernest Hemingway's novel: "Big Two Hearted River". The short story follows a fly-fisherman named Nick who reflects on his life while fishing and camping along the banks of an Upper Peninsula trout stream.
"He watched them holding themselves with their noses in the current, many trout in deep, fast moving water, slightly distorted as he watched far down through the glassy convex surface of the pool, its surface pushing and swelling smooth against the resistance of the log-driven piles of the bridge." - Hemingway in Big Two Hearted River
Another Michigan crafter was inspired by the Two Hearted River: Bell's Brewery in Kalamazoo, MI. They've created the delicious Two Hearted Ale, a classic IPA "well suited for adventures everywhere".
It is still known as a great trout stream and many people visit the Two Hearted's banks to camp, kayak, and enjoy the breathtaking natural beauty. Truly one of the U.P.'s hidden gems, be sure to make a voyage to this beautiful area at least once in your life.

I'm always up for mixed metals, and the detail of this flower is amazing. I have a number of rings from the twig collection and I like choosing which "season" to wear.
I wasn't especially smitten at first. (My wife was.) But seeing it on her hand in bright sunlight made a huge difference, it's beautiful. I gave it to her at dinner several days ago and she hasn't taken it off since.
I got this to give as a gift and it is perfect. Quality piece. Would definitely buy again.
I bought this as a gift for a dear friend of mine who loves puzzles, can appreciate the artwork, and who spent many years living in the UP, so a perfect gift all around.
Delivery was timely and communication with your company was excellent.
Unique looking ring and very comfortable
Had looked at this piece for a long time and finally ordered it. It has good weight and definitely good size. Love the stone and the silver work makes it even more interesting - Am very happy with the purchase.
I love this pendant with my whole heart and soul. It is breathtakingly beautiful. The waves, icicles and creative frosty background texture are the perfect setting for the lovely aquamarine and diamond. Nina created a masterpiece and I will always cherish it.
It is a beautiful set we are using as anniversary rings. They go perfectly with the wedding set we also purchased from Beth Millner.
These earrings are stunning with their copper accent and precious bears, I've gotten many compliments on them! They are also quite light weight, which is great for my sensitive ears.
