Skylight Jewelers had a WordPress site with a customized theme that was no longer being updated by the author. As WordPress was advancing, the quirks were becoming too obvious to site visitors. It is natural then to not want to update software because of fear of breaking more parts of the website – a cycle familiar to most web designers. At the time quite a few security problems were identified and fixed in the newer versions so until our go-live the site was vulnerable to hackers.
At the foundation, the goals of the update were somewhat practical but it was a golden opportunity to have a modern design portfolio. Our selection process brought us to Avada theme because of the many options it provides to beautifully present image portfolios.
Goals of the update
- To be able to update the site without fear of code failures
- To fix the gallery slideshows
- To make the website responsive to different device sizes without having to maintain 2 different sites
- To make the site load faster
Thank you! You are always a wealth of information. I appreciate your generosity and sharing.

I am loving the way the (new almost published WordPress) site is looking!!!
Deb quickly understood my goals for the site and had great site design suggestions. She was very responsive and easy to work with!
It is hard for me to pick only three attributes that best describe Deb. She is personable, talented, and easy to work with. She created a clear and inviting web site for the complicated information I needed to impart.
I haven’t had time to look at everything but the new Google calendar looks wonderful and we can now print it… WOW!Thanks so much.

I don’t know how long it’s been since I looked at our website, but DAMN! it has improved immensely! Somebody or somebodies have done an awful lot of work to put together a very nice setup. Please send on my compliments to whomever is responsible for all the info and pictures. They did a great job and it is quite easy to navigate.
