Refulgent.

Intensely bright, shiny, reflective; by extension, glamorous. Light bounces off the thing, and only grows brighter.

Nothing that structured; I just stumble across things.

Yes, aglets! I made a point of learning that when I was quite young, as people kept making a joke of how nobody knew what they were called.
