About

My name is Tala, and I am a geek.

I am a computer geek, I am a science geek, I am a pop culture geek and yes, I am a craft geek. Two of these I plan to pursue as major parts of my professional life, the others provide the influences that keep me inspired.

First, science. I graduated in 2009 from Colorado State University with a pair of bachelors in Biological Sciences and Microbiology with a minor in Biomedical Sciences. I am still searching for that first door-opening mind-blowing life-creating job in the field of public health, where I want to build a life fighting infectious disease and saving the health and lives of those who never even knew they were at risk.

Second, craft. When not slaving away hunting for that first post-undergrad career sort of job, I make, and make, and…

Second, craft. When not slaving away hunting for that first post-undergrad career sort of job, I make, and make, and make. My preferred crafts right now are polymer clay, jewelrywork, embroidery, sewing and knitting. I track all these obsessions on my blog at http://corvustristis.wordpress.com, where you can find information on my business, my life, my geekiness and above all my craftiness.

In this store, I tend to sell unique and unusual jewelry and accessories, as well as my line of polymer clay buttons. Most recently I've begun to explore the idea of starting my own embroidery pattern business, based off the exciting response to the free embroidery patterns I regularly post at the aforementioned blog. The biggest thing standing in my way right now is getting a physical product made; should you know anything about how multi-imprinting heat transfer embroidery patterns are made, I would greatly appreciate any leads.

I have been selling my work off and on since high school under the Corvus label. The name refers to the avian genus which includes crows and ravens; species popularly known for a trickster's spirit and a legendary draw to all things sparkling and shiny.

Mmm, shiny.
