Shiny: The History of Glitter

Not all that glitters is gold

All That Glitters: The History of Shiny Things from Etsy on Vimeo.

Nope, this isn’t a sarcastic take on that Mariah Carey movie. It’s about humanity’s historical predilection for shiny things, and making ourselves into shiny things.

Also about 1930’s era American cattle farms. Now go get rid of all the tinsel that’s static clinging to you from the tree.
