About me/ Me presento...

My first entry on the blog!

My name is Monica and I love making jewelry.

I live up north in Spain, surrounded by very beautiful mountains and beaches. I love nature, animals, art and travelling whenever I have the opportunity, I always enjoy visiting my family back in the US.

I started by making a pair of earrings and I was hooked! I make different styles of rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings; I love to try different techniques and experiment with different types of materials (silver, copper, polymer clays, gemstones, Swarovski…).
I first made mostly jewelry with Swarovski, and then I started using gemstones, and now I´m addicted to them! ;) I have quite a collection.
I also like to make felt brooches, key chains, cell charms, hair accessories…a little bit of everything!

Dofikatt came up taking the name of one of my kitties “Dofi”, I wanted a name that nobody else could have, so I made it up :).Here´s a pic of the real kitty after my brand name:

I chose this pic of him sleeping in wich I based the kitty for the logo

If you have any questions about my work please feel free to contact meI´d love to hear from you!

Para mi primer post en este nuevo blog tan solo quiero presentarme.

Soy Mónica, vivo en Asturias y me dedico al diseño artesanal de bisutería y complementos.

Todo empezó por casualidad y poco a poco comencé a hacer anillos, pulseras, collares, pendientes, broches, llaveros, colgantes de móvil…vamos, un poco de todo!
Me encanta utilizar distintos materiales y técnicas para experimentar y poder desarrollar líneas distintas.

Uno de mis materiales favoritos son las piedras semipreciosas, me encantan sus colores, texturas y formas que siempre son una fuente de inspiración.
Mi marca nació por casualidad, creada a parte del nombre de uno de mis gatitos, Dofi.

Si quieres, puedes ponerte en contacto conmigo, me encantaría saber de ti!
