Hi, My name is Dolores Pargana, I was born in Lisbon, Portugal, and emigrated to Canada in 1965. Have been living in Toronto, Ontario since then. Raised two girls with the help of my husband, Joe, worked as Systems Programmer Analyst for about 18 years, retired earlier due to illness. I had breast cancer. That was 8 years ago, had the cancer removed, and I have been cancer free ever since.
After retirement and regaining my health back, I decided I need a hobby. I started buying beads and tools, wire, took some lessons, and began making some necklaces and earrings. I liked it so much that I kept buying more and more beads and all the paraphernalia necessary to design handmade jewellery. I love to work with small glass beads and use ancient stitches to create lovely pieces. What started as a hobby, turned into a business.
Now I sell on Etsy and Artfire. Links show on top of the page.
I hope you like to read my posts. I will try to post once a week.
