    I have been trying to speed my handmade jewelry website. Tried all kinds of plugins. Some of them did not work, others broke my website. I even hired a web developer, that did not work so well either. What would you recommend?

    There are loads of ways to speed up a site: image compression, remove plugins, simpler theme, gzip, static resource caching.

    I'd start with getting some decent hosting. The TTFB is very slow.

    One where you aren’t sharing a server with thousands of others. It may mean paying more but good service isn’t cheap.

    See if there is a local provider, sometimes smaller independents are better than the big nationals.

    Change hosting plan first, also hire a good web developer who are able to do this task.

    There are multiple factors which directly affect the site speed including Image optimization, Code and site hosting. You should check these things manually and trying working on it.
