Patrick Burt is an artisan jewelry sculptor in Tempe. Pat does great work but has to compete with big-name jewelers and chain operations. Z-Com Creative built a robust, searchable product catalog for Patrick Burt Studios, featuring various taggable criteria, Paypal integration, and a couple photos of each item. The catalog currently features several hundred items, all managed by the client.
The website also features a blog where Patrick posts articles outlining his production process. Really interesting stuff!
Since PatrickBurt.net launched in 2006, other, better solutions for independent artists have cropped up on the web. Patrick sells most of his work through Etsy.com (another Drupal site!) these days. We’ll be re-launching PatrickBurt.net in the near future with a stronger focus on the blog and gallery, and tighter integration with his Etsy site.
