Today we’re delighted to be spotlighting one of our sponsors for Interior Canvas: Ex Voto Vintage!!! This beautiful jewelry collection, that was begun in 2011 by founder, Elizabeth Adams, carries such an amazing story with its pieces. After Elizabeth’s youngest child sadly passed away from a brain tumor, Elizabeth found solace by turning her energy to creative outlets like mixing different jewelry patterns, colors and hardware together. From there, Ex Voto Vintage was born. Creating these unique pieces gave healing to Elizabeth as well as a gift to others. In addition, a portion of each sale was, and still is, given to The Cure Starts Now Foundation for pediatric brain cancer research. The gift that keeps on giving!
Here’s a little bit more about this beautiful jewelry line, its founder and what keeps these designs inspiring and unique. And don’t forget to read to the end so you can enter our GIVEAWAY CONTEST! Enjoy!
Tell our readers a little bit about the creative minds behind your fabulous jewelry lines!
Elizabeth Adams is the owner/designer behind Ex Voto Vintage Jewelry. Born in Montgomery, AL and the daughter of two artists. Southern roots keep her designs grounded in traditional and classic aesthetic, but the look is never predictable and stiff. Elizabeth’s personal style is a mix of classic and bohemian. We think this is what makes Ex Voto Vintage jewelry appealing to women of all ages.
Ex Voto has a one-of-one collection as well as a limited edition collection. The limited edition collection has so many different varieties that you will never see yourself coming-and-going (which is every woman’s nightmare.) The one-of-one collection features antique elements, some of which are 100 years old or more. Elizabeth designed a signature toggle clasp for Ex Voto which has a design patent. The toggle, the shape of which is inspired from an antique key, allows two pieces of Ex Voto jewelry to be connected together so that a bracelet can become an extender for a necklace or two necklaces can become a longer necklace and change the style altogether. We love versatility. Watch our short videos which show the many ways to connect ExVoto on our vimeo page here:
Where do you get your inspirations for your different pieces?
Elizabeth finds inspiration for her collection through the materials and elements themselves and is often inspired by architecture as well. Elizabeth wants her designs to be unique but also very wearable. “Make a Statement Every Day” is the motto at Ex Voto. Statement pieces you can wear every day with everything, from a pair of jeans to a cocktail dress. That is what Ex Voto is about.
Tell us about your Fall 2013 Collection. Can you single out a few of your favorites?
For fall 2013, we have a lot of dramatic pieces like the gold leather band necklace, the Zelda necklace, and the Ellie necklace with vintage acorn pendant (the giveaway piece for your readers.) The Galena necklace and the Florence necklace and bracelet are a great example of a statement pieces you will want to wear again and again because they work with everything in your closet! Women are also really loving the Woodley cuff bracelet. It gives off such a Wonder-Woman-girl-power vibe that you feel like you can take on anything your day throws at you.
