Finally after nearly 2 months, a computer breakdown, bad eyesight, and a heatwave which made working impossible, I have finally completed the new version of my site! By using a content management system (CMS) it is now easier to search for stones and jewelry types, plus easier for me to maintain. And although certain graphical enhancements I created on the old version like the side navbar with the little bead representations of stones can’t work on these new pages, I will be working to bring other graphic delights into the mix like the ability to change themes.
I’ve been working as much as I can to get these new pages together. I’m more than halfway done, I have only about 100 jewelry sets left to add to the new format…just the “Silicates” are left to finish up: Agates, Jaspers and Quartzes.
I am gradually adding my inventory to this new version of my old site (formerly at http://eyebalm.com/jewlery.shtml) You are welcome to look around here, however it will be a while (weeks?) until I have everything sorted out. I’m about a third of the way done now I will keep the original pages up on the older version, however that site will no longer be updated. This URL is shorter anyway, and easier to remember 🙂
