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.

Returns and exchange details
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. Generally speaking, what you see in the listing is exactly what you receive. Foret is hyper vigilant about presenting accuracy in photographs, descriptions and measurements.

Any item can be returned for a shop credit providing you contact me within three (3) days of receipt. The item must be in perfect condition and in its original packaging (e.g. if it was in a gift box.) A 15% restocking fee will be applied to the return. Please ship back your item to Foret via USPS with delivery confirmation and full insurance (just like it was shipped to you) within seven (7) days. When you have your delivery confirmation tracking number in hand, please send me the number via convo. No exceptions. Once the returned item is received and assessed, I will calculate your shop credit and let you know via convo.

For returned items: Your shop credit can be used both here at Foret and at my second shop ForetTwo. At ForetTwo, the focus is mostly on jewelry making supplies like precious and semi precious stone beads and cabochons, textiles and vintage treasures, budget artisan jewelry and metaphysical items. If you choose an item of greater value, a balance will be due. You may choose an item from any of my Etsy shops . Just send me the link to the item(s), and I will make a 'Reserved For' listing with the adjusted price which reflects your credit. I will send you the link as quickly as possible. Reserved for listings must be paid within 24 hours. Any balance due on items exceeding your shop credit will, of course, be reflected in your order.
Payment
Foret welcomes PayPal and Etsy Payments.

Payment is expected upon purchase (C.O.D.) Once the transaction is completed, the sale is final. Foret reserves the right to cancel an order and/or refuse service to anyone at Foret's discretion.

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
FREE SHIPPING WITH FULL INSURANCE to US Customers. Your purchase will be shipped via USPS First Class or USPS Priority flat rate (at my discretion considering size, weight and value) with delivery confirmation and full insurance on all items. You will be sent tracking information when your order is shipped.

All items are packaged as securely and safely (and beautifully!) as possible. If you need your order right away, any order can be upgraded to Priority or Express on request. Please contact me *before* purchase so we can work something out. Fees apply.

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. Notify me immediately if a package arrives damaged and we need to make a claim.

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.
Additional policies and FAQs
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.

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. Send me your beads and pieces, and let me fashion something unique and meaningful just for youl

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. Once the work has begun, there is no turning back! I know that sounds a bit intense. However, I see custom work as a commitment both from me and from you.
