An Interview of Dylan Brannon from Glow Sequence from Racine, WI

Interview by Anna Fox of Premium e Liquids.com

Glow Sequence producers of top quality Coil Pendants.

How to reach Glow Sequence

Anna:

So, how did you get into vaping Dylan? And where you a smoker?:

Dylan:

Alright well, I started vaping this summer. I always liked hookahs and things and didn’t want to be a smoker. I bought a vape pen to try out from Walgreens this summer and almost got bored.

Anna:

How were you introduced to vaping?:

Dylan:

A friend of mine when we sat around a hookah, back when vape pens were new.

Anna:

What are you vaping now? Whats your Mod and Premium e Juice?:

Dylan:

The thing that got me, being artistic myself, was when I saw those weird complex coil builds on Instagram. I went deep into building. It was a challenge for myself. Now I vape mostly on my IPV 3 Li mod with the gotta have for builders rda Phenotype.

Anna:

Nice!:

Dylan:

I recently got a job because of this passion I have for vaping.

Anna:

Do you work in a vape shop?

Dylan:

In 2 weeks I jumped the ladder from coffee shop barista, to home improvement sales, and now regional manager for Infinite Vapor Wisconsin.

Anna:

Woah! That’s amazing!

Dylan:

Thank you.

Anna:

How did this happen?

Dylan:

I have a background in sales and when I want something that I’m passionate about, I go get it. I met them just walking into their store looking for a twisted messes rda. They didn’t have anything like it, and I thought that needed to change. So I emailed them my resume.

Dylan:

When I was 7 years old, I went on the sidelines of a highway, built a stand and wrote RARE ROCKS FOR SALE.

Anna:

Haha! That’s awesome!

Dylan:

I put a bunch of cool looking rocks I found in the woods on the table.

Anna:

Do you want your coil necklaces to be a full time job or a hobby? And how did you come up with this idea?

Dylan:

That is a hard question, my idea first…. I loved building, I almost build more coils than I vape juice. So when I ran out of wire, I panicked. I remembered having some wire and saw some really artistic wire work before but thought it would be neat to practice. When I saw what I just did I laughed and put it around my neck. Then I wore it for a while after I snapped a pic on Instagram.

Anna:

Sweet!

Dylan:

Vape wire was on back-order so I started looking up gauge size to make the wires the same proportion but in an enlarged version.

Anna:

Smart idea, people love it!

Dylan:

I picked a few people with about 300 followers and sent them out for them to try on. Thank you.

Anna:

How many did you give away?

Dylan:

As for work or hobby, well I tried hiring 3 different people just to assist with a part of the process. I gave away 3, including the first one I made. So it ends up I’m a one man shop. People are surprised by my prices but they don’t understand the difference.

Anna:

What do you charge?

Dylan:

$47.96 plus ship for a standard pendant.

Anna:

Can you explain the difference in the wire and time to make it?

Dylan:

That includes 6 hrs of labor specialized in building, plus materials and tool table maintenance. It ends up that I make less than minimum wage in the end. The wire is a mix of aluminum and copper alloys, you will see similar wire at craft stores. Being the highest demand, I need to find special request colors that still fit the proportions. My last inventory search lead me to an exclusive vendor in Hungary for an incredible teal.

Anna:

Why does this wire take longer to work with? Love the teal!

Dylan:

Well, the biggest difference is that art wire is softer and larger sized wires need more force to spin around like a clapton coil. Its a dance between creating a tight uniform weave, and snapping of the wires (calling a start over.) My average snap rate is 3-5 per coil. I have a way to minimize it though where I can just trim off damaged areas and go back to building length again. They are also colored which you have to keep in mind you don’t wear or chip.

Anna:

Impressive! Very delicate art.

Dylan:

Extremely delicate. Of the 3 people I trained to help out, they returned a mess of wire saying its too hard.

Dylan:

Furthermore, for durability, they are polymer coated.

Anna:

What is the life span of your necklaces?

Dylan:

This includes a dip, set, heat, trim , repeat then over tight cure. Then they are backed for aesthetics and to seal those wiry ends from fraying or bothering your neck. The durability coating should keep you good from surface scratching. Stepping on it however will smush it….. on the positive side, if it is wrecked from whoever s fault or reason, you can send me the original, and I’ll send it back to you like new. Every time. The idea here is that I am selling you my art. Not just wires. Art doesn’t die.

Anna:

So, I’m guessing with this much passion you would like to turn this into a full time thing? Go to vape events?

Dylan:

If there was a balance that could allow me to pump out that many unique and high quality pendants that I felt personally proud of each one, paying the bills etc. It would be a tempting reality. I am currently speaking with lawyers and have a patent pending.

Dylan:

I have a good friend, a glass worker that I pay to make those tiny drips. It helps to support his side business to keep his torch full every 5 drip pendants I sell, he get a share.

Anna:

So cute! The drip is fantastic! Thank you! This was fun!!! Have a fantastic week!

Dylan:

You too! may the weekend come running!
