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

          Loved the idea but for a paperweight, it should have been heavier. It was also hard to read the wishes on the wishbone.

                    I received this as a gift years ago for graduation and loved it so much that I have regifted it many times, this time at a babyshower, where the recipient was very pleased.

                          The product itself is great and we are very happy with the look and quality, but the adhesive stickers that held the box closed on each side were so sticky that the cardboard of the very nice packaging boxes tore and made the boxes look very beat up.

                          It would be GREAT if the adhesive closures came in the box and could be applied once the gift arrived and we were able to look at it before giving it to our client. I had to buy very expensive stickers to cover the spots on the box that tore when we opened it to look at the product. Otherwise, great! But that was a bit of a disappointment.
