The New Black

Emilie Shapiro's take on classic black tux cufflinks is one of deconstructed, casual elegance through recycled sterling silver and rough cut obsidian. The chunky, jet black obsidian--a volcanic glass--is set in lightly patinated recycled silver bezels, making these distinctive accessories for a postmodern formal look. Perfect for an alternative groom or any evening calling for French cuffs with flair. Handmade in New York.

“A goal is just a dream without a deadline.”

There was never a moment that Emilie Shapiro didn't consider herself an artist. "Before I could speak I expressed myself through what I made with my hands," she says. "I am so incredibly lucky that my parents allowed me to pursue life on the path I chose." That path led to a line of jewelry comprised entirely of one-of-a-kind pieces she crafts by combining her metalsmithing skills with her love of found objects. "I have a massive stone collection that I started when I was two," says the New York City resident. "I usually pull out my drawers of gems and minerals and something catches my eye that I haven't seen before or forgot about." When Emilie creates a piece, she says she imagines the wearer seeing a reflection of themselves in it—“beauty in imperfection."

The cuff links do not look like the photo. The silver is dull and the obsidion is chipped leaving white powder chips on the black. I will try to polish with a soft cloth.
