Fledgling Parisian brand Morphee Joaillerie captivates with a whimsical new collection of jewellery

Pamela Hastry, the designer behind Morphée Joaillerie in Paris, creates delicately crafted and entrancing jewels that capture ephemeral moments in time.

Specialising in custom-made and limited-edition pieces, Morphée Joaillerie creates luxurious and whimsical jewellery with a non-conformist edge.

The brainchild of Belgian designer Pamela Hastry, who sells her jewels by appointment only from a showroom on Avenue de l'Opéra in Paris, the latest Morphée collection inhabits a verdant natural world in which cherry tree blossom trails down the finger and blooms on the ear, an emerald grape vine weaves its way between the fingers and a swallow swoops across the hand. Each piece is inspired by its own story and, through delicate craftsmanship, captures ephemeral moments in life.

Pamela's jewels emerge from imagined stories centered around the mythical character of Morpheus (Morphée in French), also known as the God of dreams in Greek mythology.

After training at Kingston University, the Instituto Europeo di Design and the National Federation HBJO, Pamela worked for a number of international jewellery brands before setting up Morphée Joaillerie last year.

From London to Paris via Antwerp and Rome, she seeks inspiration from every corner of the world. Drawing upon her interest in art, elegance, design and human nature, Pamela uses her knowledge of precious stones, high craftsmanship and the latest jewellery-making techniques to create pieces that combine elegance with a sense of history.

A certified gemologist, she has a passion for gemstones and is fascinated by the aura and poetry that emanates from every stone. All the jewels in her collections are handmade and limited to seven editions, adding to the feeling of exclusivity.

An intricate butterfly made out of white gold and diamonds, clinging onto a stream of Akoya pearls, tells the story of two siblings who, every Sunday, would chase the fluttering insects at the butterfly pavilion, while a brilliant constellation of diamond stars evokes starstruck lovers admiring the twinkling night sky. Morphée's custom-made pieces are a unique alternative to off-the shelf jewels designed to stir up the feelings and memories of each individual client and provide a breath of fresh air in a busy modern world.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
