    Smile Brandnew Website

    Hi everybody,
    What do you think of my brandnew website. I did with the help of my friend.
    So check it out at Handcrafted Beaded Jewels and let me know what you think. Also I would apprciate it if you point out typos, that you might see
    Thanks so much
    Lexi

    Hi Lexi,

    Love the new site! Very, very nice.

    This page doesn't exist from menu bar...

    What's the chance that you could switch the google ads to the right side?
    They were too much of a distraction from your products for ME...I am in the habit of zoning out those when they are on the right side...on the left side, they are in my face...

    I am REALLY impressed with the uniformity of the background in your products pictures...nice job.

    Hope you are enjoying your new site...looks wonderful...Good Luck

    Very nice you and your "freind" did a wonder job, but he always does. You should be in the green in no time. Do you make your products? They look very nice.

    With Marnicky on the job, how could you go wrong! Looks great.

    Did notice one link that I stubmbled upon..........the B-291-2 Necklace on the Extravagant page. When you click on the picture to open a large view, it opens in a web page. When you "X" out it closes the web site.
    Just an FYI.

    Good luck with the site and sales!!

    Thanks for spotting that Andy.

    Lexi... open up the extravagant page and on the image B-291-2 change the link to 'open in a pop up window'.


    oh and what's with the stat counter on the home page???? Not required Lexi, you have a perfect stats program in your control panel and it's quite a well know fact that stat page counters do not give a true reflection of hits, nor do they look very professional

    Really nice color scheme and even though the navigation is shifted to the left to make room for a Google search bar, it didn't bother me or distract my eyes from the main focus of the page. Aside from a few of the other things that were brought up, I'd say really nice job!

    Hi, site looks fine & well laid out.
    Couple of things to look out for is page loading for the less fortunate with dial up & slow broadband. http://www.beadedjewels.biz/extravagant.html is at nearly 1400kb & could easily been brought down to 3-400ish by optimized the images. The images will also look less distorted on the thumbnails. This is the same on most pages
    Although the header is nice to have at 26kb, it’s the 1st thing you see & has been over reduced & pixilated. Bringing down the other images sizes & increasing this may look better. EXSAMPLE. AT 39KB
    Quite a few of the pages have different coloured backgrounds to the text & wasn’t sure if this was intentional. IE: http://www.beadedjewels.biz/closeouts.html
    If you are making the jewelry yourself, I assume you are taking the pictures yourself. It would be worth investing in a light box/tent with a good light, it will get rid of the grey backgrounds to the images. I think Lady Eye has a post somewhere on a home made one from a cardboard box.

    Good luck with the site.

    Left side = Better pay out than right side!
