Creatives in Conversation: The Blog Series
Uniting powerful stories from the past and present, Ex Voto Vintage specializes in timeless jewelry produced with high intention and skillful execution to encourage conversation, gratitude and inspire a creative spirit.
When Elizabeth Adams was born, her father’s mentor gave her a locket and a small card with the handwritten blessing: “May your life be as beautiful as you are.” She has come to see that while life is not always easy, it can be beautiful. The daughter of two artists, Elizabeth was encouraged to be actively creating at an early age. Growing up in a historic neighborhood in the south, she came to appreciate fine craftsmanship and the patina that comes only from time.
In 2009, after losing her young daughter to a brain tumor, Elizabeth created Ex Voto Vintage Jewelry. Ex Voto, which means a testament of gratitude, is a collection of one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces designed by Elizabeth from antique elements. Made in the USA, Ex Voto is non-toxic and made using genuine stones and freshwater pearls. ExVoto gives a portion of sales to The Cure Starts Now Foundation for pediatric brain cancer research.
