Growing up in Chicago, I remember the first time I heard the sound of cicadas, a loud, unmatched symphony. Despite the fact that cicadas are pretty large insects and can be kinda scary as they fly around, they have an undeniable beauty, especially in their delicate wings. Based in Lawrence, Kansas, Sudlow Jewelry has a line of cicada wings, including earrings (pictured above in brass), a gorgeous cuff bracelet, and a necklace. They’ve traced a real cicada wing to get all of the detail, and then laser-cut the design into brass or stainless steel (your choice).

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
