I created some new polymer clay pieces in the Pantone fall colors with more silk screen patterns. I was wanting some new designs so ordered several silkscreens by Tonja Lenderman. She has some really unique patterns and I selected the ones that would work well on smaller pieces of clay such as earrings and snaps. Many of the silkscreens out there have quite a bit of open "space" and work best when creating larger items.

I really like the Mini Gingham - Hound's Tooth pattern. I wanted to experiment a bit first without using too much clay so I positioned the silkscreen in the center of the clay sheet and printed a partial section of each side. A little sheet of clay can go a long ways when making snaps, earrings or other small jewelry pieces.
