Beth Millner Jewelry Opening May 16th.

Preparations

I have spent many hours getting my new store ready over the last week!  I have found awesome tenants for the apartments behind my store and worked out leases and all of the details of being a landlord. My partner Mike helped with some minor repairs that needed to be done.  I had wanted to convert the apartments to artist studios in the future, but the amazing thing is the two apartments I had opening rented to artists!  How cool is that?  Even cooler yet, my one bedroom apartment is going to be rented to an acquaintance that has just graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in jewelry from Northern Michigan University, right here in Marquette.  Her name is Laurel and her jewelry is fabulous.  I am very excited to be also renting her some studio space in my new workshop.


Shop and Gallery Set Up

Some of the things I have done to ready the store have mainly been moving items in, setting up my studio and getting the gallery space ready.  I got the glass replaced on my display cases and hung photos of my jewelry on the walls.  I have also been busy with online and custom orders and I am really enjoying working in the new space.


Help is so good!

I am so very grateful for my assistant Christy.  She spent EIGHT hours polishing all of my jewelry.  I have many items right now and will hopefully be sending some items out on consignment soon.  My assistant Christy has a Bachelor of Fine Arts and she concentrated in photography.  She is also now taking all of the photos of my jewelry and is doing a great job!


I have my jewelry in many locations around Michigan and with help from employees, I will be able to still have items for sale in these other locations.  For a full list of the galleries and gift shops where you can find my jewelry, please take a look at the Galleries Page on my website.



I am so grateful for the supportive community I live in.  As a token of my appreciation, the first 10 customers at Beth Millner Jewelry downtown Marquette, Michigan on my opening day of May 16th will receive a FREE piece of jewelry!  I will be having a grand opening sometime at the end of June and will be announcing that in the coming weeks.


Looking forward to seeing you at my store!

Sincerely,

Beth Millner
