I've published gerber files of the PCB layout to the github account. There you can find nearly all the individual glyphs.
If you'd like to support the project I'm running a crowdfunding campaign where you can pre-order the Glyphs. The plan is to ship units this summer (2016).
If you want to go full DIY then I also made a video showing how I do the SMD/SMT assembly.
The Glow Glyphs are defined by a couple of unique components, here they are:
|Solid-state Lighting Connector||AVX||009159003001106|
|Warm White LED (3000K)||OSRAM||GW PSLLS1.EC-GTHP-5R8T-1|
