Sorry not sure how to add working link, so I just pasted the link above. I love this because of the clarity in the glass and the depth of the flower. It looks so real.

So hard to pick just one item! I think it's going to have to be Emma's Welsh Dragon Rhun though (http://www.etsy.com/listing/50035658/lampwork-dragon-pendant-borosilicate). Not only is he a stunning creation, but he reminds me of the 4 wonderful years I spent living in North Wales whilst at uni, and when I first saw him on Flickr he instantly caused a flood of fond memories!
