Mary Beth Moberg… Artist, Entrepreneur

February of 2004 marked the culmination of a dream and the beginning of a quest. After a quarter century of working as a bench jeweler in Wausau and Chicago, Mary Beth Moberg finally had her own shop. It would be a jewelry store that broke the mold: Upscale, Uptown and Up North, Never Uptight. Inspired by the beauty and the ethos of Wisconsin’s Northwoods, its shelves now sparkle with ethically sourced gemstones and Mary Beth’s unique custom designs. 

Our Town

Wausau, Wisconsin… Gateway to the Northwoods, whose name in Chippewa means "Far Away Place". Nestled at the foot of Rib Mountain, with its world class ski resort, and on the banks of Lake Wausau, where the Wisconsin and the Rib Rivers meet, the city is home to a thriving downtown arts community. Anchored by the historic Grand Theater Arts Block, the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art, the quaint interior space of Washington Square, the River District stores along Scott and Third Streets, downtown Wausau has become a haven for artists, musicians, craftsmen and specialty shops like The Northwoods Goldsmith. Take a day or two off, come Up North, and drop in for a visit!
