love. love. love. I am totally in love with these pieces from Mexico City based designer, Jennifer Musi. She approaches each piece “as a small sculpture, yet considers how each piece will interact with the body, it’s texture, weight, how it reflects light, looks against a hand, and frames a face.” Each piece starts out with a sketch and a silver wire or sheet. She then uses very basic tools; a chef’s torch, wire cutters and a jeweler’s saw to create these one-of-a kind pieces. Jennifer does not use molds, which is I think what gives her pieces so much beauty and emotion. She was kind enough to send me pictures of her work space and sketches, which are seen above.
I fell in love her line, MUSIBATTY, because she incorporates patterns so beautifully in her pieces. They have such a raw, strong feel to them, but are still slightly feminine and just feel authentic. She has a showroom in Mexico City, but if you are interested in purchasing a piece simply check out her website and email Jennifer to purchase. She has a true passion for her art and is also just one of the nicest people. Take a moment to peruse her site and what she is all about. Enjoy!
