Grocery lists, to-do lists, check lists.... We make a lot of lists throughout our lives. It usually has to do with helping to remember what we came to the store for, organizing tasks to meet a deadline, taking inventory, etc. and usually aren’t as fun as they were back when we made Christmas lists every snowfall in anticipation of those shiny gifts under the tree.
For myself, making lists feels therapeutic, similar to coloring in a coloring book or doing a word search puzzle. I enjoy the easy flow of thought when thinking of “things that are blue” or “my favorite smells” or “things I am excited about for fall” such as:
Crunchy leaf noises
Flannels fresh out of the dryer
Pumpkin pie crust, specifically
Thick socks in boots
Chilly, but sunny days
Those super in-style felt hats
Deep red and bright orange trees
The “crisp” smell
Quiet tourist towns
Tall, skinny pumpkins
But I do think my favorite kinds of lists are wish lists. And speaking of that, here are some of my favorite Beth Millner Jewelry pieces that speak to me and maybe to you too
Lake Superior Agate Ring
The only way to get a truly “one-of-a-kind” piece of jewelry is to snag a Lake Superior Agate because the big lake never makes two quite the same. I love the intricate details of the stone against the simple and elegant setting of this BMJ piece.
Mini Superior Gales Earrings
I am a bit partial to these earrings because I already have the matching pendant! I really love the season-less design (summer waves, winter waves, gales of November, etc.) and the sturdy latch on the back. I wouldn’t have to worry about losing an earring dancing or going off the beaten path 😊
Crescent Moon Post Earrings
Because I have double pierced ears, what a perfect thing to match with my #2 wish. Crescent moons over the waves. We all have those earrings that we leave in for weeks (maybe months??) at a time, and these are going to be my next staple!
Lake Superior Copper Agate Drop Pendant
Copper replacement agates are one of the Seven Wonders of the U.P. and the gem of the Keweenaw. BMJ also features copper replacement agates in ring form too! This particular pendant reminds me of the tide against the shore and colorful rock beaches of the Keweenaw.
Lake Superior Agate Cuff
Another agate piece, can you tell I have a favorite stone? Cuffs remind me of southwestern jewelry usually adorned with turquoise or spiny oyster gems. This Michigan take is gorgeous and would go great with a rolled-up sleeved flannel.
So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and make that fun wish-list :) And use code BAPC10 if your fun list includes some BMJ treasures.
Take care, -P

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.
Love these so much! I love all my jewelry from Beth.
I'm very happy with these earrings. They are delicate and lightweight, and perfect little Lake Superiors! Very well-made.
I purchased this pendant as a gift for my sister, and she loves it. The pendant is small, but the design is bold enough that the cardinal is visible when worn and makes an elegant accent. Beth & team also worked with me to replace an item that had been lost—their customer service is exceptional!
