I recently spent a Saturday morning hanging out with some stylish lifestyle bloggers for a private event at Ex Voto Vintage Jewelry. This intimate shopping experience was hosted by Nashville-based Social Bliss Events.
Nestled in heart of the Green Hills area of Nashville, the Ex Voto space is absolutely exquisite. The bright white walls give a lovely contrast to the stunning gold vintage jewelry. These hand-crafted pieces are incredibly unique and are almost as beautiful as the story behind their designer …
Created by Elizabeth Adams from antique elements, Ex Voto combines vintage lockets and pendants with semi-precious stones, vintage crystals, freshwater pearls, premium leather and chain heavily plated in 18K gold.
After losing her young daughter to a brain tumor in 2009, Elizabeth created Ex Voto Vintage Jewelry. She has come to see that while life is not always easy, it can be beautiful … blessings of encouragement and gratitude to the Redeemer who has the power to make beauty from ashes, these are the concepts behind Ex Voto Vintage.
A portion of the sales of Ex Voto Vintage goes to The Cure Starts Now Foundation for Pediatric Brain Cancer Research.
But perhaps my favorite part of Ex Voto is located in the corner of this adorable shop … a quaint little nook of the store space where you can submit your gratitudes … your beauty from ashes.
