Precious Metal Clays -
Silver & Bronze Clay Jewelry
             

Cheri has been accepted into  Indiana Artisan for her silver metal clay and bronze clay jewelry.

Cheri represents the finest of Indiana craftsmen as evidenced by her acceptance into Indiana Artisan for her work in silver and bronze metal clay. Cheri's new work in jewelry, her Faerieware, is made with fine silver wire, silver and bronze clay, 22-carat gold accents, and semi-precious gemstones and findings.

All pieces made of silver art clay are 99% pure silver dust, with added binders to make the silver act and function in a clay form.

Bronze clay was developed in 2008 to work just as silver clay does, but in a more affordable medium. Each type of clay, whether gold, silver, bronze, or copper, require a specific set of techniques, firing methods, and finesse to create the perfect piece.

Being used to working with pottery for 30 years, it took a great strain off of Cheri's arms to go from 50-pound boxes of porcelain clay (three to four tons of clay each year!) to 50 to 200 gram bags of PMC clay.

Cheri's work incorporates Brown County's exquisite natural beauty, telling the story of the magic that happens in the leaves and flowers that poise themselves around Faerie Hollow. Images of dragonflies (faeries' most loved disguise!) and other natural elements fused with elements of the earth (silver, bronze, and gems) create a one-of-a-kind visual experience with which to ornament your body.
