Iain Stewart-Hargreaves, a silversmith based in Calanais on the west coast of Lewis, wanted a web site to display and sell his hand made silver jewellery. Iain also wanted to be able to add articles on topics which interested him and his visitors, including traditional stories he had transcribed.
Iain already had strong ideas concerning how the site should look, and we based the design on these. We constructed the site on a commercial ecommerce platform to simplify the process of listing products and accepting online orders. We then added the product details on Iain's behalf and retained responsibility for updating the site on Iain's behalf. The shop has around 100 products in total.
The content, including images, were all provided by Iain himself, and were edited and processed by us to fit the constraints of the site. The result was a visually striking and very interesting web site with a fund of information within its pages.
