Glitter: Three Questions About One of the Oldest Trends Answered

Have strong feelings about glitter? You’re not alone – little kids swoon over it, unicorns bathe in it, police use it to solve crimes, and glam rock stars have it in their make-up arsenal. But how did this glitter craze begin? And how can you make dazzling accessories a part of your décor without making it tacky? There’s no need to spend anymore googling – all the answers are here! 

Why We Are Attracted to All Things Glitter

Though the first production of modern glitter took place in 1934, we’ve been attached to shiny things since the dawn of time, which isn’t surprising – after all, glitter and wealth often go hand in hand. Meanwhile, according to Mentalfloss.com, the roots to our attraction to everything sparkly go deeper than this. New research has proven that our impulse for shiny surfaces is driven by an instinct to seek out shimmering rivers and streams. This explains why Paleolithic people used to bedazzle things with mica (sheets of silicate-forming materials), why modern kids prefer things that sparkle, and why wearing a shiny object evokes a sense of optimism in adults.
