I don’t know anything about jewelry, but see if that stops me from prospering off it

I can only take partial credit for this one: A lot of the heaviest lifting comes courtesy of a couple WordPress plugins and a theme, and even the layout conception and logo are the work of the person — my friend Angela — who also designs the jewelry and owns the site. I assisted with some of the layout suggestions, made sure all the parts came and worked together, and cut up and reglued the code as needed to achieve the desired layout without breaking anything. Since then, I’ve added/tweaked this and that as needed. I also made it so that the logo jumps when you roll the mouse over it, which is a huge, huge deal.
