ExVoto Vintage Giveaway!

I first heard about ExVoto Vintage last year, and quickly became email buddies with the designer behind the line, Elizabeth Adams. Her pieces are so very special {much like sweet Elizabeth herself} and I am thrilled to be giving away one of her incredible designs to you, shown above! {Which retails for $239...so you should feel pretty special}

A bit of background for you to soak up: When Elizabeth 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." The lockets in Elizabeth's limited edition line each come holding one of four blessing keepsake charms just as her first locket did. Here is a close up of the locket included on the bracelet:

The collection of one-of-a-kind limited edition pieces are created from antique elements and made by hand in their Montgomery, Alabama studio, and feature diamonds, semi-precious stones, Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls, premium leathers and sterling and gold-plated chain. Says Elizabeth, "Art, vintage patina, mysterious history and gratitude to the Redeemer who has the power to make beauty from ashes...these are the concepts behind ExVoto Vintage." 

A portion of all ExVoto sales are donated to The Cure Starts Now Foundation for Pediatric Brain Cancer Research. Elizabeth lost her daughter, Madeline, to a battle with brain cancer, of whom which the Maisy necklace is named after.

You can see why Elizabeth's pieces are so inspiring and why her creations have such amazing life within them. I know you will drool over them as much as I do! {Check out the gorgeous cross on her website...just breathtaking...}
