Is this a space capsule? A bathysphere? A holiday ornament? It’s none of those things! It’s a piece of jewelry –an affirmation locket pendant from Fortune & Frame. This company makes jewelry that you can personalize with a message, a love note, an affirmation, goals, a special date, or something else petite enough to fit inside. The jewelry is affordable, but more than that, Fortune & Frame offers items that are completely unique.
A Wand Runs Through It:
The Sphere + Wand Locket from Fortune & Frame’s Capsule Collection is available in sterling silver or 14L gold-dipped silver. It hangs on a nice chain: 16″ – 18″ – 20″ adjustable and with a nice lobster claw clasp ($138).
As you can see there is a little wand threaded through the sphere. This keeps it closed, Slide the wand off out and the sphere opens to reveal a little hiding place for an affirmation or something else. You can also get this as a ring (silver/$88 gold-dipped silver $98).
Fortune & Frame lockets, rings, and bracelets are inspired by vintage jewelry that once held perfume, messages, and keepsakes. Yours will come beautifully boxed with a couple of inspiring messages in a tiny envelope, or choose one from the gallery or personalized with your own message.
Dare Big, Fear Small:
I would have used one of my own favorite affirmations, but I forgot to order the one I wanted: “Think it you can say it and you can do it“
So I used one of the affirmations that arrived in the small pink envelop at the bottom of the box. I just rolled it up and put it into the sphere. For this sphere necklace, I chose one of the included sayings: “Dare Big, Fear Small.” When you hold one of the Fortune & Frame lockets in your hand, it’s a powerful talisman. You can sense the love note or affirmation or whatever else you put inside. It brings motivation, courage, inspiration, and more.
But you could just as easily fill the little sphere with sand from your favorite beach, a lock of hair, a tiny crystal, or another small item. The attached wand closes the sphere, securely.
One thing to be mindful of is that this piece is so special and sentimental, you may never want to take it off. But do take it off when you bathe or at the beach or pool as it’s not waterproof. However, should your scroll get soggy, Fortune & Frame sends a few duplicates if you requested your own message, or you can buy more from their website.
This Makes a Great Gift
When you give a locket like this, it’s even more special because it is intimate. It’s personal to the wearer and/or the giver. There are many different designs from more traditional lockets and hearts to fortune cookies! If you get one for yourself, add a goal you want to reach, a wish you want to fulfill. Or buy several and layer them.
Most of the pieces are under $100 making them great travel jewelry as well. Graduations and weddings, virtual or not, are happening soon. Place a wish for the future inside to remind that special person that they are appreciated. I think this would be an amazing way to propose. Cheer up someone going through an illness or another difficult time. Or, just keep positive thoughts with you every day. I love these!
