Jose Vasquez is a talented pinmaker based in the Bronx, New York. Working a day-job in security, he eventually landed a position in the offices at esteemed fashion magazine, Vogue. His keen interest in accessories and innate creativity, in part, lead to him managing all the fine jewellery. After acquiring a strong feel for styling and what people actually wanted in fashion accessories, Jose and his partner, Jason, started their own pinmaking company called Pin Drop NYC and now sell their pins all over the world.
