PARIS-BASED jewellery brand Morphée Joaillerie is presenting its collections at the Haughton International Art and Antiques Fair, London next week. The fair is renowned for its selection of objets d’art, all vetted for quality and authenticity by a panel of industry experts.
Art Antiques London brings together leading international dealers and visitors from all over the world, who can buy with confidence at this strictly authenticated summer showcase. The fair takes place in a bespoke pavilion opposite the Royal Albert Hall which is close to the site of the Great Exhibition of 1851.
The jewellery line Morphée Joaillerie, established by Belgian gemologist Pamela Hastry, will be one of the exhibitors at the fair. Morphée Joaillerie offers limited edition jewellery collections as well as custom-made designs. Starting out at Kingston University, London, where Hastry developed a solid base in design, she went on to refine her jewellery-making skills in Instituto Europeo di Design, Rome, where she learnt the intricacies of jewellery, especially through drawing. In Paris, she studied at the HBJO. jewellery school and also explored the technical aspects of workshops, which sharpened her manufacturing requirements based on the traditional techniques she learnt from various skilled jewellers.
Hastry worked at various jewelry brands before setting up Morphée Joaillerie Paris in 2013 in Avenue de l’Opéra. Morphée Joaillerie is inspired by “imagined stories centred around the mythical character of Morpheus (Morphée in French), also known as the God of dreams in Greek mythology.” The brand is known for its exquisite, unique and poetic pieces.
Morphée Joaillerie can be found at the Art and Antiques Fair next week on the Lucas Rarities – stand D1.
