How it all started...

My signature glittered pear ornament...

Thought you might like to see how all this glitter stuff started. This glittered pear ornament above was one of my very first products, waaayyy back in 1999. I started playing around glittering faux apples (for the teacher), pears and peaches, added wired ribbons to them, made a wire hook so it could hang as an ornament, then wrapped them in cello and showed them to a few friends. They all thought they were beautiful and that I should consider selling them. The rest is history...and the best part is that I still love making every single one! Now I sell lots of different fruits & veggies...pomegranates, plums, artichokes and even chili peppers! Lots of people use them as Christmas ornaments on the tree, but just as many hang them in windows, year round or put them in a glass bowl or on the mantel.
I'll post pix of some of my other designs soon & I'll also post some project instructions for those of you who love glitter as much as I do!
Enjoy!
