Artist Cards Editions and Originals (ACEO)

I became interested in ATCs when I found some on the web. ATCs have two requirement: they have to be 2.5" x 3.5" and they have to be swapped, not sold. I've also found out about ACEOs - those Artist cards that can be sold - they are originals and editions. Same size. The artwork for ATCs/ACEOs can be anything, but typically they are either painted or decorated with stamping designs. I decided to make some by beading and/or enameling!

I first did a series of ATCs for my Bead Journal Project for 2011. These were fun to do. In 2014 I found the material Shibori Silk Ribbon, then being used by many bead embroiders. I fell in love. Thus my 2015 ATC/ACEOs were started. During COVid, I didn't have many shows to do so I started my enameled ones.

If you would like to trade with me or see a larger version of one of them, please call or email me. If you want to trade, that's great, but I'd appreciate if you make a few so I can have a choice as you have a choice of mine. I'm willing to trade various materials and techniques (like pottery, painted or just metals to name three), not just beaded or enameled.

Note: if you want to do enameled ones on copper, check out this site: StampingOutLoud.com who is offering a one time use per person discount code: kcenamel10

I'm Keeping For Myself (lol)

Silken ATC - #2698: This is a series of ATCs that started because the 1st two included an albalone bead that I had. They were so different, using the same larger bead, that I decided to make a series, as I have 8 of these beads. I'll see how many different colors schemes I can create with .I kept these and framed them.
