Silk Screens & More @ Tonja’s Treasures

test3

Hi everyone ! I am a designer of silk screens and clear stamps who also enjoys making polymer clay jewelry. If you like to be creative and love to use unexpected patterns & textures you will be overjoyed with the hundreds of designs available in my Etsy Shop. You can access my Etsy Shop by clicking on any one of the images in the Etsy Mini interface on the right side of this page. I would love it if you also visited my Facebook Page and my blog Polyclay Corner . I should probably post more often, but there is some useful content. 🙂 You will also find announcements of new products and sales events. If you need to contact me directly please send me an Email.


Message to Groups & Guilds: I can do large group orders of silk screens at a discount. Contact me for details. FYI: I have about 500 silk screen design and many are not listed in my Etsy shop. They can be seen on my Facebook business page.

A little info about me. I hail from the beautiful Northwestern United States, but more specifically the NE part of Washington State. I have been an artist most of my life thanks to the influence of my grandmother. She taught me how to sew, crochet, macrame,  plus a few others beginning at the age of 10. I have tried my hand at many types of art, but I discovered polymer clay about 18 years ago and was hooked right away. It became a true obsession after about 3 years of just playing with clay. I gave away anything non clay related and the passion took over. I mostly enjoy making jewelry, but I have been known to wrap clay around a pen or bowl or light switch cover from time to time. Having an art medium with so much versatility leaves the door wide open to endless possibilities.

I was included several times in Jewelry Crafts before they stopped publishing the magazine. I’ve also had an article in Polymer Cafe and they gave my necklace the cover ! (See cover image below) I also had the honor of having an article about silk screening on polymer clay published in The Polymer Arts magazine. I have a few free tutorials available. Here are the links – Layered inks Pendant , Crackled Faux Tile Shards , Ancient Images Tile Bracelet .

I live with my wonderful husband and our 2 fur babies, Farrah & Sydney, who are miniature dachshunds. Yes, they are all a handful at times, but life would not be complete without them. Here are pictures of my girls. 🙂
