I am going all the way back to the very beginning and my very first favouite shop, EndangeredCreations, is run by an Australian Lampwork artist, who I only know as Steph. She now lives in Sydney and her work is just to die for! I originally came across Steph on Ebay, but have continued to follow her on Etsy. Her work is bright and when you see it in real life you want to lick it and see if it tastes good too!! I have only bought beads from her, and mainly beads I have requested which, if she has the spare time, is always willing to do personal orders. Steph also designs and creates amazing sterling silver jewelry which is truly unique. Here is some of her work.

The shop, Beautifully Handmade Designer Buttons by TESSA ANN is another amazing shop. Tessa makes buttons from polymer clay, but she doesn't just make ordinary buttons, she makes amazing buttons that have intricute detail. Each buttons seems to tell a "Once upon a time" story and I want to know the ending to each one! The pictures will speak for themselves, but if you are after a different gift for a little one, or wanting that personal touch to a scrapbook page or canvas for a room, then you will want to see Tessa's designs.
