Hello, Kathy;

no, pewter is not attracted to magnets. magnets only attrat iron and iron alloys, such as steel.

If you can see where the item is located, perhaps a piece of something sticky (like chewing gum) attached to a long stick, or one of those long cable tools with the little metal claw fingers that extend when you push a button on the other end might do the trick?
