Beth Millner Jewelry celebrates 15 years of business!
Beth Millner Jewelry is awarded the Catalyst Business Award by the Community Foundation of Marquette for their continuous work with local nonprofits and giving back to the community.
Beth provided instruction of jewelry fabrication, casting and sculpture courses at Northern Michigan University, standing in for a faculty member on sabbatical from the School of Art and Design.
Beth Millner Jewelry's Artisan Goods collection was released, featuring an array of eco-friendly puzzles, prints, coloring books, notebooks, and greeting cards featuring Beth's original paintings and drawings. As part of their commitment to the environment, Beth Millner Jewelry partnered with the National Forest Foundation, planting one tree for every Artisan Goods item sold. This marked a significant milestone for the company in their efforts to promote sustainability.
Beth works with fellow artists to create unique, one-of-a-kind belt buckles, wallets, and belts featuring her iconic conifer couple design. Additionally, she pairs her artistic talents with her creative eye to produce a selection of greeting cards that showcase her original artwork.
Beth Millner Jewelry was honored with the Michigan Woman Owned Small Business of 2020 award from Michigan Celebrates Small Business, recognizing their commitment to innovation, philanthropy, performance, and enriching workplace culture.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the team shifted their production to create and distribute handmade masks and mask-making supplies. Their dedicated craftsmanship resulted in 50,000 nosepieces and 6,000 of their locally handmade masks being donated and sold to people across the nation.
The Northern Michigan University Alumni Association honors Beth with the Outstanding Young Alumni award, recognizing her achievements as an artist and small business owner.
By growing her team, Beth Millner Jewelry is allowing Beth to pursue her passion for jewelry design and creation wholeheartedly, while a manager focuses on building the business and marketing strategies.
