Very good coding you've got going on! That green is nasty though in my opinion. :) But if you like it, keep it.

just thought i point it out that when viewing your site in mozilla firefox some of your text overlaps with one of your green separater bars.

Any chance you could get me a screen shot, or tell me what page it's on?

Also, do you have text zoom set to something greater then 100%?

My text is to 100% although if i decrease it it fits in perfectly.

i like the colors and also like your logo as its nice and simple.

Hrmm for some reason the font size is bigger on yours then it is on mine. I'll just stretch out those divs when I get a chance. Thanks for the screeny :)

I like the theme, it's very 80s but cool. You heard my opinion on this before...

I am kind of confused by the purpose of this site of yours. I'm not sure if it's a jewelry store or a webdesigning company.

It is very good, but the color scheme is....not to be offensive, but it looks a little disgusting.

Your site does look like it will succeed though, just try and fill it up a little as fast as you can.

LOL! I did the same thing as Blades....decided to go ahead and read everone elses comments before I posted.

Sorry mate, but the yellowish-green look is hideous. I couldn't get past it! I also don't care for the font. However, these are just personal preferences and have nothing to do with the actual content of your site.

I would also have someone proof-read your text. I'm your quintessential grammatical idiot, but I did notice that the sentence structure in a few places could be improved a bit.

On the plus-side, there are not alot of 'heavy' graphics to slow down your pages, and the overall layout wasn't bad either.

First of all, i hate the colors. The lime green with the grey is just shocking! Red or blue with grey looks cool but lime green...?

Anyway, it's up to you.

Over all, i like the layout but found that it wasn't that obvious what i was viewing... jewelery.... it didnt hit me right away!

Good effort though, think about changing the colors.

Thanks for the comments and suggestions guys, but the green is staying.

Reason: Everyone is so adept to seeing blue websites that green doesn't sit right, well if one person even tries to use the theme, then it makes a difference. Sorry just anti-confomitory feelings.

lol i dont actually mind the green and the grey, i would go a darker grey and use a sans serif font arial/verdana and reverse the text (white) then that would look much better imo ;-) got some nice elements though.

yeah just looking again the text is ugly, a sans serif would be best, but i do also see that you are linking it with the style of your logo...hmmm

The problem with the green is not that it does not sit right. the problem is that the eye get soon tired from this type of contrast. In other words, it decreases the accesibility of your website. Since you are in webdesign, I am afraid that this your prospective customers may be repelled, rather than excited by your non-conformity.
