The Science Behind Studio Jewelry
For the last decade, Rebecca has emerged as an artisan Jeweler specializing in precious metals and natural stones. The Susquehanna River outside her studio window in Lewisburg inspires authentic, hand-crafted designs that are comfortable and kinetic. Unlike most jewelers, her path to this art was through a career in science. As a result, her ideas are influenced by the wonders of nature.
In 2008, Rebecca discovered her passion for working with metal and stone. With her background in the sciences, her workbench quickly turned into her "studio" full of torches and tools, where she learned the techniques of goldsmithing and lapidary. In 2015, she had the opportunity to pursue the jewelry business full-time and launched Mohr Designs.
Rebecca launched her on-line store in 2016, introducing 5 collections. In her collections, you can touch bubbles, find deep red sunsets, hold a pearl in its shell, see fairies, and get caught up in the beauty of movement. She polishes the stones she uses in her one-of-a-kind pieces. To share the natural wonders she discovers in these stones, she has started a series of blank greeting cards and stone coasters.
Rebecca’s transition from a scientist in corporate America to entrepreneurship has been a unique journey. In Mohr Designs, she captures the moment where art and science come together to create something amazing.
