The glitter is flying...literally!

Glitter has really taken wing around here...on the wings of fat little birds, hummers and dragonflies. Lately I've been working on a series of sweet flying things for the Christmas tree and am getting ready for this coming season of shows and workshops. Can't believe another year has flown by....Hopefully these guys will start to get you in the spirit. ( I know, it's waaaaay too early, but it's Christmas everyday here at GlitterWorksStudio!!!) This hummer above is glittered with my special blend of glass & non glass glitter, so a bit of the bird's color will show thru but it will still tarnish a bit over time. It will never tarnish to a really dark patina, however, like 100% glass glitter.
These little birdies are such fun and shine like diamonds on the tree. The camera really doesn't do justice to the sparkle...I'm using vintage silver glass glitter on all of these. Some of my birdies are hanging on wire, some have wires on their footsies to attach to the tree branch, some sit in little nests and others are on a long wire so you can put them in a flower arrangement on your holiday table...or you can also just stick it right into the Christmas tree. I'm in love with these guys...wish I could keep them for my own tree! You'll also see a glittered letter, dragonfly and snowflake (oohhhhhh, does this mean snow is coming? Wait a sec...Halloween (Glitter-ween) hasn't even come yet!!! I know, I know, slow down girl...but I have to think months in advance!)...there will be much, much more to come...


Back to the glitter pits....
