“I'm inspired by the idea that all that is built, made, painted, and fabricated by humans was an idea. What an amazing thought, and it means nothing is impossible.”

Tamara Hensick is a sculptor whose muses are manifold, and range from ideas and idioms to funny notions, stories, and fairytales. Her first piece was a chicken wishbone molded and cast in sterling silver to inspire one to always make wishes. Sculpting in soft, malleable jeweler's wax and hardening clays, her finished designs are molded and cast in various metals. Her collection of cast pewter, sterling silver, and bronze pieces include organic, figure, animal, and object motifs that bring a saying, idea, or whimsical phrase to life.

Comments about HAND SIGNS PAPERWEIGHTS:

I read the size but still pictured slightly bigger than what came. I love the one with the first and fourth fingers up, as that is the Hook 'em Horns sign. Would love to have just that one in a slightly larger version.

Comments about HAND SIGNS PAPERWEIGHTS:

These would be GREAT if I could buy the American Sign Language manual alphabet letters. Anyone involved with sign language in any way would love them! Even those who have no experience with sign language would love the idea of having such a great visual form of their name of motto in another 3D language. Make it happen and I will buy the whole alphabet.

      Comments about HAND SIGNS PAPERWEIGHTS:

      These are way too small and light to be a paperweight. Plus, one of them doesn't stand up! The look cute sitting on the desk, and thats about it.

      Interesting product for a person who has had some experince with signing. These are meaningful and will be a joy to use. My only concern is with their size, as paper weights they may easily get lost or thrown out accidentially.
