Wow. It’s been nearly six years since this website first went online and it’s been through several changes. Now it’s changing again. No, this isn’t a “going out of business” announcement. It’s simply a refreshing of the brand. Just as my jewelry making style and skill has evolved over the last six years, so have my web and social media skills. So as I refresh and re-do old pieces that just aren’t up to my standards any longer, so goes the website.
The biggest part of the facelift is pretty obvious. I’ve changed up the header photo and switched up the color scheme. However I’ve also restructured my gallery of images, making it easier to find photos of older necklaces, bracelets, earrings or whatever. Now, you no longer have to sort by collection. Just pick the type of jewelry you’re looking for and there you go! That isn’t every piece I’ve ever made, of course, but just some of the highlights to give you a feel of what sort of styles, designs, colors, and media I work with.
I’ve also added a link in the navigation bar so that visitors can more easily find my Facebook page. Let’s face it. The world moves fast today and social media, whether it’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Snapchat, are making businesses – even online ones – more responsive and mobile. That goes for the handmade jewelry biz as well. So if you want to stay absolutely current, follow the link provided in the navigation bar and become a fan. Just make sure to “follow” me and like a post or two so you’ll keep on seeing them in your feed.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be making additional changes, most of them subtle. I’ll add a list of shows I’ll be participating in, continue to update the Gallery of Designs and a few other things. I’ll even try to make a few more blog posts. However, when you’re also a romance author, sometimes balancing two jobs is a little tricky.
So if you like what you see – or even if you don’t – head over to Facebook and drop me a line there. Or if you’d prefer to stay right here, follow the links in the “Contact Us” part of the navigation bar. Our office staff is changing. We’re sad to announce the departure of Betta fish Horatio Caine and Ginny Wade, but now you can say “HI” to Jean Claude Van Damme Fish and Bubbles.
They’re new around the office, but I’m sure they’ll get into the swing of things in no time!
