Q25th Sept:
I bought some shiny sequins. The back of the packet said:
FOR CRAFT USE ONLY.

?What else could they be thinking of using them for?

In certain circumstances I might attempt to eat them.

Um. Is witchcraft a kind of craft? Or wizardry?

i was just reading about this last week. it's a warning. you see, tiny people of less than 6" in height were using them in the discus event at the tiny people's olympic games but the crowds of tiny spectators and the tiny cameramen & commentators were getting dazzled by all the multicolour flashing reflections. so they were banned, hence the warning.

No zero. You should check snopes before you post. The real reason is that the sequins have very sharp edges and sliced the heads off all the tiny spectators in the first row.

Eye test for toddlers with limited language: scatter shiny sequins on high chair tray table. If toddler can pick up a sequin, chances are vision is not impaired enough to warrant correction.

(but if you don't want your toddler to eat sequins, you can always use candy sprinkles)

you can't use sequins as series reflectors for high-power lasers. they pose a risk of fire.

you are also not advised to use them as salad garnish.

My family labored in the sequin mines of Tennessee for generations. My own grandfather died of sequinosis, barely able to bend at all from the scaly adhesions, and the company denied that it had anything to do with his 50 years of deep-sequin work. And those craftpeople are no better! If there weren't such a demand for sequins, people like my grandfather wouldn't be forced into lives that end with them looking like immobile parti-colored lizards. Those craftpeople are the reason there is a sequin-mining industry at all. The only thing worse is the rhinestone mines!
