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.

She currently lives and has a studio in Los Angeles. collection
