German Glitter - Dreaming of Sparkles

This last week, I have been dreaming about "german glitter".  I recently was viewing The Vintage Farmhouse facebook page and they were highlighting german glitter.  If you have not heard of german glitter than just look at the below amazing items. This is not your ordinary glitter that you get from craft stores but ground up glass (for adults use only) and I have heard sprinkles like diamonds.  Check out The Vintage Farmhouse Pinterest Board for more ideas. 

Look at these amazing colours available in german glitter.  Snapy Crafty on Etsy showcases all the beautiful colours available.  Check out my favourite list "Glitter Sprinkles" for other inspirational items on Etsy that were made by using german glitter.
I almost wish it was November so I could start making christmas gifts using this amazing glitter.  When looking for buying options, I have discovered Meyer Imports trading from California.  They are import their german glitter from a small german family whom are Bavarian Glass Artisans. I just need to choose the colours that I want but it will be a very hard choice.  To learn all about how german glass is produced then read about it on Meyers Imports website.

Looking for a idea for a spring or summer project, below is a very clever idea of how to create beautiful tea light holders by using teacups.  Visit Meyers Imports blog "Everything Glittery" for ideas of how to use german glitter and a link for the inspiration for the below sparkly teacups. .

Tomorrow, I will post an idea of how to use german glitter for a Easter egg decoration.
