sunday sparkle

Some glitter history brought to you by Erica Domesek of P.S.- I made this... (via her twitter)
Glitter was invented in 1934 by Henry Ruschmann he developed a technique of crushing plastics turning into amazing sparkles
 Henry Ruschmann then started Meadowbrook Inventions which is still in business today and the largest producer of glitter!  They have also recently branched out into synthetic fibers to create Angelina® fibers.  These fibers can be combined a number of ways with different materials to create subtle shimmer, iridescent shine, or a holographic quality.
