About

From analog to digital

Foret was created to provide a virtual store in that amazing land of e-commerce. Being no longer physically able to endure the rigors of craft shows and other venues, Etsy provides the ideal solution at this point in my journey.

My background is in fine arts, specifically photography and works on paper. One of these days, I will offer some of my photography and original digital art for sale. I am also an apparel designer. Creating jewelry is something I have always been drawn to ever since I was a little girl. That and making all of my own clothes since I was about 12 years old. Let's face it... I love to play dress up and have always had my own distinctive style. It makes sense to me... always perplexed and amazed my mom who was a doctor and scientist. I thank the gods she allowed me free reign with my creativity.

I have a strong connection and affinity to the cosmos and the earth, and my work is inspired by that connection.

ps. I am also a professional counseling astrologer with over 35 years experience. Contemplating reopening my metaphysical shop here on Etsy, but in the meantime there are a few astrological listings in my second shop: ForetTwo.

    Foret features ethnic style handmade artisan jewelry with a distinct boho flare. I have been know to call my style "sophisticated ethnic" or even "ethnic cowgirl" since I have lived in beautiful Santa Fe, NM for over 30 years.

If you wish to reserve an item, I am happy to list your selection as RESERVED just for you and send you the link. Your selection(s) will be reserved for 24 hours only.
Shipping
Domestic US Customers- your purchase will be shipped via USPS First Class [USPS Priority if the item/purchase is too large or fragile for a padded mailer] with delivery confirmation and full insurance on all items. Orders with multiple items are automatically upgraded to USPS Priority shipping. You will be sent tracking information when your order is shipped.

We are currently not shipping internationally due to physical limitations. Sorry. With any luck this will change in the future. I loved my international customers and let us pray we can do this again in future.

All items are packaged as securely and safely (and beautifully!) as possible. Any order can be upgraded to Priority or Express on request. Fees apply.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final. But you have some options! If you are unhappy with any of your purchases for any reason, please contact me *before* leaving feedback! I want all of my customers to be happy customers.

Any item can be exchanged for a shop credit within three (3) days of receipt. The item must be in perfect condition and shipped insured with a delivery confirmation. A 15% restocking fee will be applied to the exchange.

Damage and loss are covered by the shipping policies above. Due to the one-of-a-kind nature of our inventory, all items are fully insured. If the insurance is waived, Foret cannot be held responsible for damages and loss.

I take very good photographs of my work. If you need more information on a piece, please contact me before purchasing. I am happy to provide more photographs, measurements, etc. According to feedback over the years, the items you purchase from Foret will exceed expectations.

For returned items: Your shop credit can be used both here at Foret and in my second shop ForetTwo. ForetTwo has artisan jewelry all under $50 and some of it is pretty awesome... and we do custom orders as well, just look in the sold items for ideas. At ForetTwo, the focus is mostly on jewelry making supplies, textiles and vintage treasures.
Additional policies and FAQs
Contact me with any special requests or questions. I am here to serve you. I love custom orders, and I can even incorporate some of your own components for a truly custom piece of wearable art.

On all custom requests and orders, I like to have a dialogue with you so you will be getting exactly what you want. I will reply with suggestions and fees, then reserve your order after we have reached an accord. A minimum non-refundable down payment of 50% is required on all custom orders.
