It began on a July afternoon in Cleveland, Ohio. Derek and Johnny Halladay were searching for bracelets and couldn’t find anything with the unique and custom look they wanted that didn’t break the bank, so they started designing their own. After sharing various designs with friends and family they decided they wanted to share the idea with the world.
From the start we wanted our image to be distinct, modern, different, inclusive and creative.
As we continued to design bracelets we created a new design element to represent this image of fearless uniqueness. Together, we came up with the idea of each bracelet having one unique bead and called it the "Oddball bead". Now we not only had a design element to represent our message, we also had a perfect name for our company that embodies everything we stand for: Oddball.
We recognized we had a solid product and were certain there were others looking for distinctive bracelets at a fair price.
Every bracelet is hand-crafted in our desert design studio, located in southern New Mexico, in order to maintain the high level of quality we believe essential to the Oddball brand and our mission: to save the world from naked wrists, one bracelet at a time.
