In Greek Mythology, The Nereids are Nymphs.
Goddesses of the sea.
Guardian Angels of sailors and fishermen and who came to the aid of men in distress.
They were depicted in Ancient Art as naked blissful maidens riding on sea creatures, so gorgeous and charming that they were able to make any man or god fall madly in love with them.
In order to pay the best tribute to the boldness of these unknown Goddesses as well as their selfless power of protection, La Fiancée du Facteur needed a whole year to create The Nereids Collection.
To find the perfect camaïeux of purple which corresponds to the depths of the oceans.
To discover the origins of the rare and precious materials used.
The Brazilian mines of Amethysts.
The Indian mines of Quartz.
The gold plated brass factories in South Korea.
The pearl farms of French Polynesia where are cultivated the famous sea pearls of Tahiti.
To contact one by one all the crystals suppliers of North America and Asia to collect Swarovski Crystals made in the 50s, which are not in production anymore and of which the psychedelic reflections remind those of the sun passing through the water.
And finally one year to create the whole Collection, piece by piece, all handmade with love...
Every jewelry is given the name of a Nereid.
