We’re still here for you!

We’re still here for you!

We’re sad to report that Mill City Made will no longer be operating as a general retailer; we are no longer participating in art and craft bazaars around town or selling pre-made items online. However, we are still here for your jewelry needs! Both Ann and Terri continue to be busy designing and assembling custom orders and are ready to take your order at anytime! Please continue to keep us in mind if you need something repaired, altered, or designed brand new—we would love to help you out!

In addition to our affordable, one-of-a-kind, handcrafted jewelry, we will also be selling a selection of new handmade crafts. Items that are perfect for a baby shower or a hostess gift.

Repairs and Redesigns

Do you have an old necklace that you don't wear any more? Do you have a piece of jewelry that broke and you want repaired? Contact us, we can help!

The picture below is just one example of the repairs or redesigns we can help with. The original design included two suede cords that fit into a wire ring and could slide to tighten or loosen the necklace around the wearer's neck. The owner of this piece felt the suede cords were cumbersome. We removed the cords, and instead added two thin wires with a classic lobster clasp. Also, the two silver beads that were originally at the ends of the suede cords were repositioned at the base of the new wires where they could be more easily seen.

Jewelry Boxes

So you just purchased a new item for your collection - where are you going to store it? Check out these cute and functional jewelry boxes!

Every little girl needs her private little box to store that one thing she holds dear. With shiny rhinestones letters and a cute little flower to match this would be just the thing! Open the latch and you will find the box lined with soft felt to keep everything scratch free. Only 3 1/2" long by 2 1/4" deep and 2" tall, this little box can be tucked away safely on any shelf.


Us grown-ups also need a place to store our treasures! This hand painted, green and gold highlighted box would do just that. Accented by gold vines on the top, you will open the box to find a small mirror and velvet lined bottom. 6 1/2" long by 4 1/2" deep and 4" tall.


Heirloom Elegance :: part two

An earlier post highlighted a portion of a our pearl collection. In addition to the timeless look of the necklaces, we also have bracelets that would mix and match perfectly!

each bracelet priced at:

8 inches round on memory wire
