Clay, Silver and Handmade Glass Jewelry

Cheri Platter of Faerie Hollow has been working with the faeries in Brown County for the past 18 years. After 33 years as a production potter, she was advised three years ago by these wise fairies to change her creation of art to jewelry.

She listened!

Precious Metal Clays are pure metal dust mixed with organic binders and most metal clay is processed from recycled metals. After studying metal clays and researching semi-precious gemstones, Cheri took a Level One Certification class needed to teach classes in Metal Clay and in 2009 remodeled her studio space as a comfortable place to teach. Please visit her website for details of classes.

Gone are the pottery wheel and equipment, the glazes and chemicals and the kilns.

In came the tiny metal clay kiln, tiny tools, tiny texturing sheets and all new work surfaces.

After completing Silver or "Bronz" clay pieces, they are coordinated with semi-precious gemstones for necklaces, earrings, pendants plus a selection of individual silver beads for "beaders" and jewelry makers.

Now some will tell you she is working by herself because there is no such thing as fairies!
