Welcome to the world of Gorgeous Glass Glitter!
In the olden days, all glitter was made of glass…then plastic glitter was invented as a cheaper alternative. The problem is that plastic glitter is a microplastic and microplastics are hard to get rid of and can be hazardous to marine life and the environment.
However, glass glitter is a gorgeous, environmentally safe alternative to all those nasty plastics, PLUS it makes your spellwork shine and sparkle in ways that no plastic can imitate! It’s like sprinkling your spells with virtual diamonds!
Glitter is used in spells of attraction, to draw positive attention to your objective and can also be used to repel negativity like a mirror. The easiest way to add glitter to your spellwork is to dress a candle with a spiritual oil and then sprinkle with a colorful glitter corresponding to your spell intention.
This set comes with nine gorgeous colors packages in old-fashioned corked glass bottles. Here are glitter colors included in this set and their corresponding intentions:
1/8 oz Bottle Black – protection, banishing, reversing
1/8 oz Bottle White – Cleansing, clarity, blessing
1/8 oz Bottle Silver – Healing, connection to spirit

Packaged in convenient 1/8th ounce glass bottles with old-fashioned corks, this finely ground colored glass is silver coated for extra sparkle and shine. Over time, a beautiful patina ages the colors, to give you a really authentic vintage glass glitter look.
These gorgeous sparkly glitters are produced in Europe by fine art glass glitter artisans in a labor-intensive hand-crafted production process. It is created by a small family-run company in the heart of Germany. This family comes from a long line of glassworkers and craft each batch of glitter by hand.
Instead of being produced by large glass manufacturers, who produce many other products, this glitter is produced by Bavarian Glass Artisans who create a far superior product and only create Artist Grade Glitters, and not a wide range of industrial glass products like the competition.
The glitter is created in a seven-step process that starts with coating a thin substrate of glass with a coat of pure silver. After firing the glass at high temperatures, color coatings are added, followed by additional firings and coats of sliver. After the coated colored glass is completed and cooled, it is ground into different sizes. The multi-stage process and base coat of silver gives this glitter exceptional sparkle and shine and also its ability to tarnish to a rich vintage look over time.
No clear glass is added to extend the glitter. It is created with pure silver-coated colored glass.
Glass glitter is not generally sharper than plastic glitter, but as this product is ground glass, so it is not recommended for children and should be handled with care.
Coating your hands in a thin film of baby powder before you start is a great way of stopping glitter sticking. To save yourself / carpet / pets and children becoming covered in glitter, simply put your project into a large plastic bag or box before applying the product. Any excess glitter should be well and truly contained, and it’s easy to then pour any excess back into the container.
