Things I’m Working On

I have been collaborating with a fellow jeweller, my friend Nadia, to make a custom silver pendant.  I don’t want to give away too much but this project is exciting as there will be Arabic writing involved and the overall design is pretty unique.  However, it is in it’s early stages so things are constantly […]

Smartphone-Friendly Website!

I’ve been quietly improving my boutique website (shop.annieli.co.uk) to improve it’s performance.  One of the things I changed, after fixing my friend’s website, is the ecommerce system.   The website is now fully functional and should not have any future problems should I decide to tweak a few things here and there. The main change you […]

With the limited time in mind I kept the design simple, abstract and based around a shape I rarely turn to: heart.  The bespoke silver hearts pendant turned […]

A New Look and Going Mobile

My first attempt at making this online boutique mobile/tablet-friendly didn’t quite go according to plan (plug-in  limitations and other technical issues).  However, after a lot of reading and learning I’m going to implement these media-friendly features myself.  In the near future this website will, hopefully, look just as beautiful on smartphones and tablets alike. Oh, […]

Happy Chinese New Year!
