The Jewel of Your Cuffs

Wear a piece of art history on your sleeve with these charming cufflinks. Made from actual material from the Isabelle R. Martin House, one of three iconic Frank Lloyd Wright buildings at Graycliff estate, they're a stylish way to pay tribute to the legacy of Wright's work. Each set contains copper recovered during the restoration of Graycliff, one of the most extensive summer estates ever designed by the renowned architect. Often called "The Jewel of the Lake" for its place overlooking Lake Erie near Buffalo, New York, Graycliff is known for its organic beauty and sweeping scenic views. A fitting symbol for Wright's knack for blending high design and the natural world, the reclaimed copper within these cufflinks contains a rich patina, a detail any architecture buff is sure to love. Made in New York.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Disappointed when the MTA filled in the "Y" cutout of their classic subway tokens, Ward Wallau was inspired to find a fun way to incorporate the unaltered tokens into cufflinks. He wanted to prove to the MTA that the original tokens were worthy of celebrating and repurposing and, after 11 years of "no," Ward became the first licensee of the New York City MTA. Since that time, this "authenticity hound," has assembled and grew his team of artisans, production staff, and authenticators in Berkeley, California, where they re-imagine nostalgic artifacts as unique gifts that tell a story. Ward loves breathing new life into things that already exist, be it letterpress blocks, a wooden seat from Wrigley Field, or a bat broken at a Major League baseball game. "This business is ever-challenging, dynamic, and satisfying," he says. "It's not a good day if you don't learn something new!"
