Intro
Behind a traditional ex-voto, there is a votary pleading to a divinity, a granted favor, and, as a token of gratitude, a silversmith making an object, offered in turn to the saint who worked the miracle.

The jewelers who took part in this project were inspired by this process as intermediaries between a divinity and a devotee and to materialize the latter’s gratitude. In this case, the “new ex-votos” are made in a contemporary way and will not be placed in a church, nor were they made to return a favor from a saint, but they share that intention.
Contemporary jewelry can be regarded as a medium to start a dialogue. Just like with ex-votos, the dialogue concerning the pieces in this exhibition starts with someone expressing their gratitude. It is the yearning behind this materiality that makes ex-votos rich objects, both in its contemporary and traditional forms. Symbolic power is the link between these two worlds.
