BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Jan. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Ex Voto vintage jewelry announced today plans to open a second location in Birmingham, Alabama March 1, 2014. The showroom will be located at 2402 Canterbury Road Mountain Brook, Alabama 35223. The line of Ex Voto vintage jewelry presents a modern day twist on vintage finds. The owner and creator of Ex Voto is artist turned designer, Elizabeth Adams.
The Birmingham showroom will sell all of the current Ex Voto collections and will also include consultation for bridal designs as needed. "Our expansion into the greater Birmingham market gives us the opportunity to broaden our client base and hopefully become a 'go to' for stylists in the region", said Adams. "This is an exciting time in the growth of Ex Voto and we look forward to seeing where this journey takes us", said Adams.
Each piece of Ex Voto jewelry, often one-of-a kind, contains a vintage element turned into a modern look perfect for every-day wear. Adams, who began her career as an architecture student turned educator, found solace creating mixed media artwork after losing her youngest child to a brain tumor in 2007. Her talent for layering vintage jewelry and brass in her art quickly evolved into a jewelry line incorporating a similar theme with vintage pendants, keys, medals and lockets. "I needed to stay busy with my hands and designing jewelry was a natural progression for me and gave me a chance to interface with customers on a daily basis", said Adams. Adams started Ex Voto in 2009. The demand for her handmade pieces quickly outgrew her dining room table and she opened her first showroom in Montgomery, Alabama in 2011. Pieces from Ex Voto have been featured in publications such as Southern Bride, Southern Lady and Garden and Gun. The line has following among celebrity clientele including Octavia Spencer and Sara Evans.
Ex Voto jewelry includes necklaces, bracelets, earrings, cuff links, and handbags. Also included in the Ex Voto brand are one-of-a-kind creations called "Couture to Cure". Each Ex Voto piece is hand made in the USA and a portion of each sale is given to "The Cure Starts Now" foundation for pediatric brain cancer research. Pieces from the "Couture to Cure" line are made from special pieces out of Adams' personal collection. All of the proceeds from the "Couture to Cure" collection are donated to "The Cure Starts Now".
