Okay kids ......
I've just finished updating my website! New home page, new fonts (I actually bought the main display font), new work - you know ... updated!
I do love that display font. I think it really speaks to my concept of "urban primitive." It's one of those 'dirty' fonts with chaotic splotches and lines within the very crisp lettering. You'll notice I've got variations of the home page image running as headers on my other sites - I'm quite fond of the doctored version on this blog and Etsy and Facebook. I'd really like to change the whole look of the website, but that can't happen until I re-shoot my entire catalog. And since I just shipped the samples back out west, it won't be happening anytime soon. Ah well, one of these days..........
So of course I'm looking for feedback and, even more importantly, if there are any glitches or inconsistencies ... links don't work, font colors are not consistent, images with text that should be centered and are off a pixel or 2. If you've ever built a website from scratch, you'll know just how cross-eyed you can get. Then there's the added challenge of remembering to stretch my right arm and shoulder so's it doesn't freeze up, which it has done and which hurts like the dickens.
As an incentive ... check it out, leave a comment and I'll throw your name in the hat to win this Urban Primitive Steel Portal Pendant.
This one's the polished steel with bronze. It has my 'l i g a" blessing written on my hand cut and dyed silk, adjusts from 34" down to 18" with sliding knots on my hand-plied silk cord - a KVK bronze tag at one knot and a Rory Raku bead at the other.
So check out the new and improved site and let me know what you think. I'll draw names this coming Friday the 16th.
Thanks in advance!
