Fortune & Frame
Fortune & Frame is a New York City-based line of jewelry, frames, and other things that hold fortunes.
Founded by designer Gretel Going, the original concept came about two years ago when she came across an insightful fortune, shoved it behind a refrigerator magnet, and forgot about it. When the fortune kept falling on the floor, an idea was born. The resulting line relies on jewelry and accessories to bridge the gap between the value people place on fortunes and the lack of dedicated places to keep them.
The 2014 launch collection, On the Mend, summons all things rustic, broken, and put back together again. Each piece in the Fortune & Frame line—from idea to sketch, wax to mold, casting, assembly, and finish—is handcrafted in Manhattan by a team of people who consistently give a damn.
