Tamara Hensick

Born in Iowa and raised throughout Germany, Tamara Hensick creates small sculptures in sterling silver, bronze, white bronze and pewter. Her fascination with crafting intricate objects by hand started when she was a gemologist, working daily with jewelry and gemstones.

Her first piece was a chicken wishbone cast in sterling silver, made to inspire her to always make wishes. She has continued to create sculptures of natural shapes, from leaves to milk drops, and never forgets to maintain a sense of play with her work.

She creates individual pieces by sculpting in a soft malleable jewelers wax, then molding and casting into various metals. collection

      I got this as a token for all who will be with us for Thanksgiving...I am putting each one in a small drawstring bag with a printed card that reads: This year " everyone gets the wishbone, may all your wishes come true".

      They are just as described - and arrived in a timely manner. I couldn't be more pleased.

        The wishbones are larger than I thought they would be and very sturdy looking. They made exactly the impression that I had hoped for. This was a great gift and I will buy it again.

              These are no-fail wish granters. You can assume each wish made on them will come true without having to break them! It was very hard to think of giving them away.

                Saw these in a magazine ad on a Thanksgiving decorated table. Bought them in advance for next years family get together to pass out as gifts. Read the posted reviews before I ordered, so knew what to expect. I think they are adorable.

                    These wishbones will be attached to all guests dinner napkin at the Christmas dinner table. During the dinner each guest will make a wish for the up coming year and take their wish bone home with them.
