About Us

Founded in 2006, ChickBait is a family-owned-and-operated company manufacturing high-quality fashion jewelry in Phoenix, Arizona. Our bait earrings and other products are made in the USA and are packaged and assembled by physically challenged people. We make it our mission to provide local jobs to local people

Getting Started

On a sunny day in 2006, Amy Halm developed the idea of making fashionable jewelry out of fishing lures. It sounded a little crazy at first, but she took a chance and showed it to her friends — and it took off like a rocket!

Expanding Outward

 Since then, ChickBait has grown nationwide, having a presence in multiple fashion markets. ChickBait merchandise can be found in retailers as well as our newly designed online storefront.

Supporting the Community

When you buy ChickBait products, you are supporting the physically challenged people who work at Epi-Hab in Phoenix, Arizona. They've been with us since our first day, doing final assembly and packaging of our products.
