Fleischer studied Ceramic Design at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Artesis University College Antwerp (1995-1999) and the Jewellery Design and Silversmithing Program at Sint Lucas University College of Art & Design Antwerp where in 2002 she received her 2th MA. Between 2005-2011 she invited designers and artists to set up events at her space for contemporary jewellery in Antwerp, Silke & The Gallery. Fleischer has been connected as Visiting Professor at the MAD-Faculty PXL University College in Hasselt and teaching since 2005 at the Stedelijke Academie in Sint Niklaas and Berchem (Antwerp, Belgium). Besides her jewellery classes a new department has been organised at the Stedelijke Academie Berchem for graduates who wish to deepen their research and professional skills. Currently she is participating and coördinating as a curator for Jewellery Sessions and further developing her jewellery research together with commissioned work.
