OTL is designed and created by Erica Young and her small team of makers, piece by piece, bead by bead. Our HQ is in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, but we are lucky to be able to collaborate with crafters and artisans from across the United States.
Erica began making colorful, quirky, hand-beaded bracelets and necklaces at summer camp and has not stopped since. 20+ years in the making, her aim is to create durable, high-quality jewelry that evokes a sense of adventure, nostalgia and pure FUN. She loves taking incessant, inconspicuous inspiration, seen in the everyday and often overlooked, and turning it into a little, wearable talisman.
Being ' on the lookout ' is Erica's constant reminder to keep her eyes, ears and heart open - aware of the silent draw and gentle pull of what she loves, as it will never lead her astray. She encourages you to be on the lookout for everyday inspiration in your own life, as well as the many opportunities the universe provides to help you create a life you love.
