ForetTwo is the annex to my anchor shop- Foret: https://www.etsy.com/shop/Foret where original handmade jewelry in our signature *sophisticated ethnic* style is showcased along with select vintage jewelry from around the world.
Here at ForetTwo, you can find a wide array of extraordinary vintage supplies and objets d'art as well as jewelry making supplies such as gemstone beads and unique ethnic focal items. Also, textiles from around the world and mineral specimens. In other words, an international emporium of wonderful things!
Our latest addition is the Artisan Jewelry section which showcases my handmade artisan jewelry for shoppers on a budget. All jewelry is no more than $50! And I get to have some fun with materials which I don't ordinarily use in my anchor shop. Peruse and have some fun!
We also have a growing astrology section. I have been a professional counseling astrologer for over 30 years. Look for listings for charts and reports coming soon.

Accepted payment methods

- Money Order
ForetTwo is now encouraging US customers to pay via Money Order or Cashier's Check as well. The general turnaround time for a Money Order/Cashier's Check which is mailed ASAP is 4-6 business days for you to receive your purchase. I expect buyers to get their MO or Cashier's Check in the mail as close to the time of purchase as humanly possible so we can keep things moving. I appreciate a quick message to confirm when payment has been sent. If I have not received the MO or Cashier's Check within three working days, you will get one reminder before I cancel the sale.
Completion of payment is expected at the time of purchase. If you want to make arrangements to reserve an item or to have a discount applied, please message me with details *before* checking out. Items will be listed as RESERVED for 24 hours only.
Everything is packed as securely as possible. Anyone can request a shipping upgrade to USPS Priority Two Day mail or USPS Express Mail. Please make the request *before* purchase so the shipping/insurance fee can be adjusted. USPS is our default shipping carrier. Shipping/handling fees will be adjusted accordingly.
At this time, ForetTwo is shipping to domestic US customers only. I might make an exception on a case by case basis for international buyers. There is a $25.00 surcharge on any international shipment as well as postage and insurance fees. International customers are responsible for all customs fees and taxes in your country.
All items are shipped with full insurance and delivery confirmation. You may opt out of insurance on request *before* you place your order. Larger orders are automatically upgraded to USPS Priority Small Box and include full insurance and delivery confirmation.
Refunds and Exchanges
All domestic US shipments are insured against loss, damage, etc.
Additional policies and FAQs
Here are the rules:
1- You may layaway multiple items and shipping/insurance will be condensed at the end in the final layaway payment.
2- Just message me with your selection(s) and we can get started!
3- Established customers, please use your coupon code by messaging me so I can factor it into the price. Large orders are eligible for the discount as well even if you are a first time buyer at Foret.
4- One unique listing is created for multiple item orders and the layaway items are simply marked “layaway reserved for ______” Upon final payment and shipping, those listings are deleted.
5- For layaway of a single item, all of the down payment and layaway payments will originate from that listing which is relisted for each payment.
6- A non-refundable 20% down payment is required.
7- $7 to $20 non-refundable service charge to cover bookkeeping, listing fees, commissions etc is added to your down payment. This fee is based on the item’s value and the payment schedule. See below for the breakdown.*
8- After the initial down payment and service charge, you have a choice of 3-6 equally divided payments scheduled to be due every two weeks, the last of which will include the shipping/insurance fee. This spreads the payments out to suit your needs.
9- A “reserved for” listing, which is based on your initial layaway listing, for each subsequent payment will be created 5 days in advance of the due date for your payment, and you will be sent the link via the Etsy messaging system. The listing will include the ‘due by’ date. So keep an eye on your email!
10- You will also be sent a reminder the day before the due date which includes the link to your selection(s).
11- If you choose to make your payment early, the next payment listing will be based on two weeks from the date of that payment.
12- You may opt to make a balloon payment anytime. Just contact me for the total and I will create the listing and send you the link.
13- Unless you make prior arrangements to extend your payment schedule (some fees may apply), accounts which are three days late will get one (1) reminder before the order is cancelled and the item(s) returned to inventory.
14- There are no refunds on layaway payments.
15- On cancelled orders, you will be issued a shop credit for the full amount of down payment and layaway payments paid. The service charge is non-refundable and will not be included in your shop credit.
16- Your shop credit expires six (6) months from the time of your last payment.
17- To redeem your shop credit, select an item or items which are equal to your credit. Shipping charges will be applied if the total is under in proportion to the grand total.
Here is an example of a simple, one item layaway on a three payment schedule after the down payment:
Item value- $50.00 plus shipping/insurance
Payment 1- $17.00 (20% plus $7 service charge)
Payments 2 and 3- $13.33 each
Payment 4- $17.58 ($13.33 plus $4.25 shipping/insurance)
*FYI, ForetTwo sustains an average of $1.60 in fees and commissions on each of the four payments on this $50 item. On more expensive items, the fees and commissions are considerably higher.
