Jimdo Stories: Allison’s New Twist on Jewelry

Allison Hertzberg epitomizes the DIY lifestyle. The fashionable Brooklyn professional first started making her own jewelry in college. It all started when she was taking a make-your-own documentary class (we weren’t kidding, DIY expert alert!). Her documentary told the story of wooden boat building in Portland, Maine. It was there that lobster fishermen showed her knotting techniques, which inspired the design of her tactile, woven, and funky necklaces. What started as a hobby quickly turned into a thriving business. This then turned Allison on to her next DIY adventure, building her own website with Jimdo.

 

We talked to Allison about her journey with Jimdo and turning her handmade jewelry into a successful side business.

Ben took a break from his performance schedule to talk with the Jimdo team about his music and his Jimdo website, and to star in our very own video!
