Foret Two -
Extraordinary Vintage and Supplies

Jewelry makers have a lot in common with artisans who work in more traditional media. Many of us like to use color as an element in our designs. Our art can make use of color in many ways, but one of the more popular ways to add color to jewelry is by incorporating gemstones. Gems are available as beads, cabochons and faceted jewels; and providing them is the focus of Foret Two! Making handcrafted jewelry takes three things - talent, skill and great jewelry supplies. Raw materials are very important; when a customer looks at finished jewelry they see a pretty necklace; the artisan sees a delicate balance of color and composition. We look at strands of gemstone beads and we see possibilities. Beautiful cabochons inspire the artisan to create. In many ways, we build frames to show off nature's artwork; surrounding pretty gem beads with gold, silver or copper beads to accent their beauty or wire-wrapping a polished gemstone cabochon to compliment the gorgeous patterns and colors nature has created. Many of us make necklaces are centered around a focal component; one gorgeous example is the Blue Flash Labradorite/Spectrolite Pendant shown above! In this way, Foret Two is full of inspiration and ideas. The jewelry supplies offered in this fabulous shop will get the creative juices flowing as you browse through the pages of unusual beads and cabochons; you'll find everything from large ruby and sapphire beads to tiny tourmaline chips. There are carved beads, amber strands, and focal bead pendants. There really is so much to see, you have to visit this shop and explore it yourself!
