Well, I designed these glass cufflinks and worked with my glass worker over some time to perfect the size, shape and coloring of the cufflinks. It made the most sense to put up an online store where people could see and purchase my cufflinks since the internet is an amazing channel to gain exposure and sales from people around the country and world, much faster than you ever could by placing your items in stores.
Q2. Is glass cufflinks the same as enamel cufflinks?
No, enamel is made by melting and fusing glass powder and then joining the melted substance onto other glass, metal or ceramic. PM Cufflinks are made by starting with a single borosilicate (known often as Pyrex) rod and working by hand to the proper shape, dimensions and colors. As far as I know, you will never see cufflinks made entirely of enamel as it needs to be fused to another substance. That is what makes PM Cufflinks unique; being made entirely of glass.
Q3. When did you start your cufflinks business?
I started working on these designs and the method in 2006. We put together the site and started selling in 2007.
Q4. Which is your favorite pair of cufflinks? Why?
I have two favorite pairs of cufflinks. I love the simple, elegant light blue set. Blue is my favorite accessory color (ties, etc) and I get countless compliments on these cufflinks when I wear them out. I also really like the Eye of the Storm set.
Q5. Do you give advice in forum or give any public talk?
I haven’t spoken in public or on any forums. I would love to talk more on the web about dressing and accessorizing, and the resurgence of the cufflink in men’s fashion. Any ideas? continue reading »
