“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 Handmade Pewter Wishbones - Set of 7:

I was so excited when I saw these because making a wish on the wishbone used to be a huge tradition in my family. I am wrapping each one individually to give to each member of my family for a special memento. They are flimsier than I expected for a [$] price tag. I wish they were made a little stronger and had a more even finish.

    Comments about Handmade Pewter Wishbones - Set of 7:

    This is a cool gift for the person you want to buy for who doesn't need anything. I gave one to each of my girlfriends-all ladies in their 60's who don't really want any more "stuff" in their lives. Possibly just a chance to make a wish. May I suggest an option to include a box for each wish bone.

        The wishbones are small yet sturdy, and easy to store. I plan to place one at each place setting in an organza gift bag for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas dinner.

        This was a cute idea! However, they are very fragile. My extended family was spending Thanksgiving away from home so I decided to pass out wishbones as a Thanksgiving souvenir of our non-traditional celebration. Everyone loved it! But like I said, they are extremely delicate. I had to preface my giving them out with a warning not to bend them too much.

          I am giving these as a gift, for a special reason. I am not that impressed with their quality, especially for the cost. [$] is way too much to pay. They are attractive and unique, as I commented, but they are super flimsy. They look nice, but as soon as you pick them up you can tell their quality. They bend with the slightest touch. Luckily I am putting all seven in a jar as part of the gift - otherwise I might be embarrassed to give them. I love Uncommon Goods and have been very happy with all purchases previous to this one.

              This is kind of a senseless gift---7 breakable wishbones with no inscription, in an unattractive cardboard jewelry box for [$]? Truly not up to the quality or ingenuity of Uncommon Goods usual fare.

                    I have purchased many of the pewter paperweights at Uncommon Goods.They have been huge hits to everyone I have given them to.These wishbones are no exception. I bought them to give as "just a little something" along with a card--they are perfect. Again, that high quality pewter material.I love this company!! You are the best with the most unique, quality gifts ever. I also love the simplicity of your products--they say so much. [...] I will continue to shop with you forever!
