    The owner of MusiBatty offers us unique design with a modernistic flavor. I am always amazed by the one of a kind look of her creations and I will continue to be a loyal follower. Purely practically speaking, the wider base of the ring wraps so confidently around my finger that it almost feels like a hug that is hard to say " No" to.
    I am thankful to fate for allowing me to peek through" the window" of this shop and enjoy Ms. Jennifer's beautiful, high quality creations.

    This is a stylish ring which carries a special beauty. It seems to me that there is some form of magic engraved into it: the magic of a creative mind or/and the peacefulness of a good human soul. I do not know, but it definitely feels special. And.... the joy of wearing it is..... worth experiencing.
    Thank you to Etsy for helping me discover your incredibly beautiful and unique creations, Musibatty!

    Absolutely luminous! Jennifer's simple bold shapes combined with this fantastic fluorite crystal's color and internal structures give this ring a soothing, glowing depth. As always, amazing quality and care. She is a master metal sorceress.

My Story

I was born in the mountains outside Mexico City where I grew up among black lava sand dunes in a house with thick adobe walls built by my father. I had a creative childhood. My mother, a textile artist, filled our home with art supplies, and from her I learnt to draw, paint, batik, dye, sew, punch rugs and make jewelry.

As a child, I roamed the countryside looking for pre-Hispanic chards and figurines. Finding a link to the past filled me with wonder, and through my discovery of ceramic fragments I connected with ancient craftspeople. Although never complete, the chards felt strangely whole and self-sufficient, like symbols or visual stand-ins for the people who had made them. Since then, I have longed to find a visual vocabulary of my own that could communicate at a primal level with that part of us that remains constant, regardless of time.

At the start, clay was my preferred medium. I built large, hollow, coil-formed pieces that were unconscious simplifications of objects I encountered in daily life: vessels, buildings, trees and tools. As a silversmith, I continued to explore the same visual language I developed in ceramics, with the added challenge of making wearable pieces. When I draw or paint, my exploration is more graphic.

I continuously revisit self-contained forms in my work. My art speaks of solidity and weight, of rock and mineral associations. Each piece is still and frontal. As I work, I look for balance between positive and negative space so that both coexist. I strive to be as present as I can to each step of the creative process, letting the piece become what it needs to be, understanding the work is not a production, but rather an exploration.

Welcome!

My name is Jennifer, and I am the artist behind MUSIBATTY (pronounced moo-see bah-tee).

I inherited a unique visual and creative language from my parents, which is why I named my creative self in their honor, joining their last names: Musi and Batty. My mother –Julia Batty– is a British-American textile artist. My father –Jorge Musi– was a Mexican-Lebanese architect. MUSIBATTY is a tribute to the rich cultural heritage of my ancestors.

I hand-build all of my jewelry in my studio in Mexico City. I use sterling silver recycled from photographic processes.

Thank you for reviewing my shop policies.
