I have been painting a lot lately, I am not been that well and have not had the strength or the balance ( Vertigo problems) to be able to carry on with my jewellery , just enough to be able to finish the christmas orders.
So when Teabreak a colleague on Folksy started a thread in the forum about ACEO's I was fascinated and so had a go, any way below are a few of my efforts and I have set up a new shop for them at

Anyway I hadn't heard of them before so I thought maybe you hadn't either, so here is the explanation that Teabreak kindly offered us when we started. Have a peep at teabreaks shop on folksy at

ACEO stands for “art cards, editions and originals”
They are tiny works of art that MUST measure 2.5″ × 3.5″
They are highly collectable and were started by artists in the US who liked buying art but didn’t have enough wallspace to hang their paintings on. By buying these tiny artworks, they were able to enjoy original art and display them in photo albums .
An aceo can be any kind of artwork…painting, drawing, collage,print…it doesn’t matter as long as the size is correct. (preferably your own work !)
They are a bit like the football cards that children collect and can be very valuable.
Prices can start at a few pence to many pounds!

  1. Very nice Wellydog. I'm going to have a crack at some Aceos over Xmas. I had a go at that Cornish tin mine Gelert posted, but I thought the end result just wasn't me!

  2. I will be very interested to see what you do

  3. They are gorgeous, you have so much talent going on!
