Hello and welcome to Cake for Corvids the home of British designer, maker and illustrator Tara Shaw who's based in the heart of Bedfordshire. Tara's work is heavily influenced by the natural world and the wonderful flora and fauna that live in it.
Tara has worked in the zoological industry for six years specializing in birds- everything from corvids, birds of prey to parrots. Birds play a huge role in Cake for Corvids (can you tell?) and the name itself is drawn from a box marked 'cake for corvids' which held left over cake crumbs to treat a pair of ravens she used to care for!
Tara spends her days going through beautiful vintage animal encyclopedias, lithographs and etchings to find the very best antique depictions of species. She also illustrates many of the images too and turns them into beautiful, one of a kind, jewellery pieces. The jewellery Tara makes is one-of-a-kind and of a high quality. Every piece is slightly different, making each piece very personal and unique to its owner. She also loves to take on custom orders and she prides herself on making someones vision a reality.
