Spring is just around the corner and the custom-made jewels of Morphée Joaillerie capture nature’s reawakening to perfection. With a showroom located on the grand Avenue de l’Opéra in Paris, the young jewelry brand was launched last year by Belgian-native Pamela Hastry, who previously worked in design and development for a number of international jewelry brands.
Following her passion for jewelry, Ms. Hastry made her dream come true with Morphée, which translates to Morpheus in English and is the God of dreams in Greek mythology. As if straight out of one’s dreams, her debut collection combines artistry, elegance and natural whimsy with pieces that appear to blossom in front of your eyes. Delicate in design and meticulously handcrafted, each piece grasps the natural beauty of life’s fleeting moments.
A budding twig of cherry blossoms twirls around the finger or curls about the ear, the body becoming a virtual extension of the verdant sapling’s blooms. Set with rosy pink sapphires and sweet pink opals in rose gold, the blossoms burst with vibrant color reminiscent of springtime.
The dream world continues as sapphire-studded swallows sweetly chirp the coming of spring while perched upon a white gold branch ring. Emerald grape vines crawl up the ear and weave through fingers while a pavé diamond butterfly flutters about the neck in strands of Akoya pearls. As the dreamworld turns to night, a constellation of diamond stars awaits the countless wishes made upon them in the twinkling night sky.
Though her creations mix elegance with a sense of history, her collection utilizes the latest jewelry-making techniques with each piece being handmade and limited to seven editions. For those looking for one-of-a-kind pieces of their own imagination, Morphée also offers custom-made designs to transform others’ dreams into reality. A certified gemologist, she nurtured her interest in gemstones and love of nature with a truly enchanting collection of jewelry designed to evoke a sense of whimsy during our day-to-day lives. From London to Paris via Antwerp and Rome, Ms. Hastry finally found her place in the fairytale world of Morphée Joaillerie.
