“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:

    These precious wishbones were the perfect gift for my brother who started a company with "wishbone" in the name. He'll give them to his investors. Wonderful accidental find! Could not have found such a perfect gift if I'd been looking for it. I gave him the bigger one with lettering to keep for himself. He loves them all.

    Comments about Handmade Pewter Wishbones - Set of 7:

    I bought these to give to friends but after receiving them, decided not to. They are pretty but larger than I thought and VERY fragile. Best to be kept on a shelf and not used. Would have been nice if they were a little smaller and sturdy enough to be kept in a pocket.

      These little gifts are perfect for brightening up someone's day!!! Everyone makes wishes and everyone wants some good luck to come their way. I ordered these and have given them out to a few friends and family members. Everyone has enjoyed them in their own unique way. I personally have mine pinned above the main entrance to my home. When people ask I simply explain that it's to bring luck and love to anyone who walks under it.

        Comments about Handmade Pewter Wishbones - Set of 7:

        I was so disappointed in these. Very small, easily bent out of shape. They are cute, and a cool idea. For the price, I was just expecting something better. And the note that they are "sold as a set of seven in a box" is true, but misleading. Yes, they are in a box - they are bunched together in a small jewelery box, about the size that you would need for a bracelet or a pair of earrings...

        I didn't return them because it was too close to Christmas and I was counting dividing these out as additions to other gifts, but if I had more time they definitely would have gone back.

          The picture in the catalog is misleading. I thought each of the 7 were engraved with a different wish for each day. Then thought the engraving was so tiny I just couldn't see without my glasses. Re-read the description several times before realizing that only the larger single wishbone was engraved. Disappointing.

            Gave them out to each dinner guest for thanksgiving as there is only ONE real wishbone in the turkey. Now giving them to friends for New Years with wishes and luck in 2010.
