Textile artist Charlotte Alexandra has a wide selection of truly lovely handmade textile pieces, including wrist cuffs, brooches, necklaces, and hair clips, in her Etsy store Sew Lovely. Pictured above is a piece called Japanese Love Affair, featuring wet-felted wool, embroidery, blue paper-based flowers, and Swarovski crystals. Just add party dress and cocktail, and you’re good to go!

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
