Mercurial 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.
Inspired by an empty coin necklace from a funerary portrait of a woman dating back to second century Egypt. This style of pendant called an "Aureus" was popular through the ages but here we've taken a modern approach pulling back on the detail and letting the shape and texture shine through.
