The Science Behind Studio Jewelry
Rebecca Mohr is an Artisan Jeweler specializing in precious metals and natural stones. She’s been designing jewelry since 2007 and in 2015 decided to capitalize on her creativity and transform it into a sustainable income. Rebecca is also a PhD Chemical Engineer with over 22 years of research experience with a Fortune 500 company, but today she prefers the titles Entrepreneur and Business Owner.
The studio of Mohr Designs is located in a historic brick home on the bank of the Susquehanna River, which inspires her art. Each piece she creates is hand fashioned, and her collections include earrings, pendants, necklace sets, bracelets and rings. Rebecca is both passionate and practical about her creations: “I could simply focus on the fun of design and fabrication of jewelry; but I know that without the business development effort, there would be little chance of a viable income”. With that in mind, Rebecca turned to the Bucknell University Small Business Development Center (SBDC) for assistance. The SBDC helped her focus on developing a clear path to success for her new business and hosted the ribbon cutting for the new business in August 2015.
Rebecca’s transition from a scientist in corporate America to entrepreneurship has been a unique journey. Her commitment to achieving her dream of business ownership is expressed in every piece of jewelry she creates. In Mohr Designs, she captures the moment where art and science come together to create something amazing.
