Mary Margrill was raised in New York City’s artistic Greenwich Village, the child of a celebrated artist and accomplished public relations executive. It is this upbringing that laid the groundwork for her unique mix of artistic vision and business acumen. Throughout her career as a key creative for renowned international jewelry lines, Mary Margrill has traveled the world creating beautiful, imaginative, and trend-setting designs. Her unique vision of elegance and style, coupled with a proven track record of designing and producing exceptional jewelry, has made Mary Margrill a sought-after commodity in the world of jewelry.
Mary’s love of art was born when she first learned to throw pots in the third grade — leading to a life-long love affair with clay, sculpture, and jewelry. Mary received her BA from Bennington College in Vermont. Several collectors purchased Mary’s sculptures during her college years, including the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation, for display in the foundation’s library. Mary spent a semester at San Francisco Art Institute, where she received honors for her paintings. She was then offered a prestigious position at Christie’s Auction House and returned to NYC to further her education, where she received a Masters’s degree in Fine Art from the School of Visual Arts. In addition to her work as a fine artist, Mary perused several jewelry designs and manufacturing courses at Parsons School of Design and The Fashion Institute of Technology. Upon graduation, and in the years since, Mary has created designs for some of the world’s most well-regarded jewelry and watch manufacturers.
In 2002, Mary founded M² by Mary Margrill (pronounced M-squared), and today (2009) has teamed up with a well-established and regarded manufacturer — together, they combine beauty, spiritual meaning, and the finest quality jewelry. Mary’s pieces remind us that we can trust our lives’ positive energy and ultimately gain strength from it. Mary’s jewelry embraces a vision of universal harmony and understanding and at the same time entices us with the sparkle of diamonds and the luster of gold.
It is clear that Mary’s work is inspired by the human need to adorn and communicate. This is an infinite facet of civilizations that originated in ancient times and that will continue far beyond any time we could imagine in the future. Mary says, “It is what we think, feel, and communicate that define our destinies.” As Mary says… now that’s “A conversation worth having*.”
