Mercurial NYC is the work of designer, Miranda Watson. Miranda grew up in Western Canada, dividing her time between the mountains, the lakes, and the cities. After moving to New York in 2010 she found new inspiration in New York City’s iconic Art Deco architecture & its geometric shapes. These themes, paired with her curiosity towards nature & the comfort of its imperfections, create a world of dichotomies typical in her design aesthetic.
After taking a design internship with a large scale jewelry design house she decided to attend the reputable jewelry school, Studio Jewelers, in Midtown Manhattan. Here, she learned the deeply traditional methods used in Metalsmithing & Diamond Setting. She also discovered a love of Lost Wax Casting and the subsequent excitement of seeing it brought to life in metal. These skills inform all of her work & her ability to create everything by hand, with love.
