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. All signature fortune-holding and fortune cookie pieces come with an original fortune. Written by Going, the fortunes shy away from the prophetic and arbitrarily optimistic, and instead focus on the intersection of hardship and light at the end of the tunnel.
