Odell Design Studio is a NYC-based jewelry design company aimed at creating fun, colorful and chic everyday statement jewelry for the fashion-forward woman of every age.
A woman-owned business co-founded by mother-daughter duo, Marilyn and Haley Ballard. They collaborate together on each eye-catching design from bold geometrics to sculptural pieces in their NYC studio.
Winners of the “Most Unique Materials” award at Metal + Smith Show NYC April 2019, and featured in The Retail Magazine’s “Look Book” section July/August 2019 issue.
By merging their unique colorization process never seen before in jewelry making, onto high quality gold plated brass, while keeping their products lightweight, they achieve a luxury finish along with quality and durability. Their hand-made earrings, necklaces, cuffs and rings are each individually colorized making no two pieces the same.
