  1. TheGem is perfect for every pixel! Though, I am attracted to use Kalium for my second web, since it has so neat design for photography sites. Thanks for sharing the creative top <3

    • Brandon, Ilike very much the Gem, the demos and all in it. But i’m not sure if i will be able to create a fashion blog with it and show my creations. I have no computer skills :(…it is complicate to use it? or should i use the Kalium or other theme?

      • Dear Rose, I guess it’s ok to not having code skills.You can give TheGem a try. Me myself don’t have that much coding knowledge and I’m pretty good working with it. The documentation is really great and same are the videos! Hope it helps and sorry for my way late response ?
