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

    Comments about "SAFE" PAPERWEIGHT:

    Hesitant to order after reading a couple of reviews saying it was small, I was pleasantly surprised that the size, although not large, is fine, and the weight is sufficient to use as a paperweight. It is cute, well made, and I am sure my "baseball fanatic" grandson will love it.

        Comments about "SAFE" PAPERWEIGHT:

        This is a gift for a huge baseball fan, and it is perfect! Others have noted that it was smaller than expected, and it is only about 5" long, but the perfect size for the top of a desk. Very pleased with the quality. I would certainly recommend this item.

        Service and delivery comments:

        The baseball player paperweight came in the time expected and was wrapped extremely well. It was in a cute little gift box surrounded by nice packing. All I need to do is wrap it to make it a nice gift. Very happy with this supplier.

        Comments about "SAFE" PAPERWEIGHT:

        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.

              This was a gift to my grandson who has played ball since he was 3. He is 11 now and loves baseball and loved this paperweight. It is on his desk with his ball trophies. I think it was a perfect gift just to tell him how special he is.
