Allendale Native Turns Stylish Creations Into Instagram Business Success

In an era marked by social distancing and customer caution toward shopping in brick and mortar stores, Cedarville junior Jessie Gerakinis took to Instagram to turn a passion for handmade style into a successful online business along with Cedarville junior Keziah Stockdale.

Awe & Co. launched in May 2019 as an online business specializing in polymer clay jewelry, "patch pants" and a handful of other fashion staples ranging from canvas dresses to beaded necklaces. Stockdale, the seamstress, and Gerakinis, the jeweler, work together to create quality products with a unique flair.
