Skylight Jewelers had a WordPress site with a customized theme that was no longer being updated by the author.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
Excellent work on my website my Friend.
Deb gently nudged me into a more modern website with clear communication, research and detailed instructions where necessary, timely follow up and good humor.

Yes and Yes, I see the basic website is perfect to get started. This is looking good.
