This morning we're visiting Foret - a shop that showcases beautiful handmade gemstone jewelry for women. The artisan behind Foret - Elizabeth Holmes-deForest - designs sparkling Necklaces, pretty Earrings, fashionable Bracelets and a lot more! First we'll look at the 25 Dollars and Less category. In this section, you'll see earrings and zipper pulls featuring gemstone beads and pearls. Classic styles like the Black and White Party Earrings are the focus here. These pretty black onyx and freshwater pearl earrings would be perfect for a night out, and would go very well with business attire as well. Made with sterling silver ear wires and beads, they're an excellent buy at $25.00! If you're looking to add a bit of color, the Green Garnet and Sterling Silver Earrings are a beautiful way to do just that. These olive green earrings feature 10mm garnet beads and sterling silver components. And the zipper pulls - or ZIPCLIP Clip On Charms - are a great way to dress up a jacket, keyring, cellphone or your bag! These would be nice gifts and are very affordable at just $10.00. In the earrings category there are over 50 unique pair to choose from! These are not your usual gemstone bead earrings. Elizabeth has searched out unusual and rare stone beads and so her creations are unique and very special. You'll love the variety here! There are so many pretty earrings to browse ... the Chilean Lapis and Baroque Pearl Earrings are a great combination that would compliment jeans and a sweatshirt - and look just as good with a nice blue dress. If you love red, her Ruby and Rhodolite Garnet Earrings are simply fantastic. If green is your color, you'll want to wear the Apple Green Chrysophrase and Silver Earrings every day! The bracelets section offers beautiful styles you'll want to call your own! Check out the unusual Ancient Coin Bracelet - a 400 year old Chinese coin is complimented by green freshwater pearls and glowing golden amber chips to create this one of a kind wrist ornament. Or the awesome Green Jade and Sterling Silver Bracelet, featuring green jade from China and British Columbia! In the Necklaces section, Elizabeth offers some very attractive pieces. The featured Amethyst and Peridot Necklace - shown in the photo above - is a fabulous bright green peridot and rich violet amethyst combination, accented with gold filled beads and component parts. Are you a turquoise lover? If you are, the Turquoise Heishi and Sterling Silver Necklace could be irresistable, and its a great value at just $165.00. Elizabeth's Ruby, Baltic Amber and Sterling Silver Necklace is a really nice color combination, and the luxurious Freshwater Pearl and Gemstone Rope Necklace is a 52 inch long multicolor piece you must see! Foret us a great shop. You really should explore it on your own, because there is so much to discover - and you'll want everything you see! So take a long lunch break and visit this wonderful Etsy shop today. Foret is a fun place to shop for handmade gemstone jewelry!
