Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry and Accessories For Women by Foret

Elizabeth Holmes-deForest is the creative jewelry artisan at Foret, and she creates some of the most beautiful handmade gemstone jewelry you'll see anywhere! This prolific artisan has a great sense of style and her handcrafted jewelry is truly fabulous. Most of her pieces are earrings, bracelets and necklaces, all made with top quality gems like turquoise, amethyst, garnet and a lot more. This shop is a great place to spend some time in; you'll want to see everything in it! There are just so many beautiful pieces here its best to start on page one and work your way through the collection. The first piece I want to mention is this Genuine Turquoise Button Heishi and Sterling Silver Necklace. Most people picture tiny beads when they think of heishi but this piece is made with incredibly large, chunky rough cut pieces that make this necklace a bold fashion statement piece. The color of this turquoise heishi is a fabulous vivid blue with just enough matrix to make it interesting. Accented with gorgeous silver beads, its finished with an unusual double heart clasp. I love it and I think you will too! You'll need earrings to wear with it, and Foret has Your Favorite Turquoise and Sterling Silver Earrings just waiting for you! Made with the same turquoise and silver beads, they're a great match! If you like black and white as much as I do, you'll love these Black and White and Slinky Earrings! They're made with carved and dyed bone, black onyx and African opal with sterling silver metal components. Fashionable, very stylish and affordable, they're an excellent choice! Foret's Special Peridot and Pearl Earrings are a wonderful combination of sterling silver, peacock green pearls and smooth, almost oval shaped peridot nugget beads. The color of the peridot is a pure, gorgeous green ... this is a very pretty combination you'll love to wear! If you like pearls combined with gemstones, you MUST see this Freshwater Pearl and Gemstone Rope Necklace! A truly versatile piece, it can be worn with anything in your wardrobe. The variety of gemstone colors is just amazing, and the peacock green color of the pearls is a great match. This beautiful necklace is made with a 14k gold filled hook and eye clasp ... extraordinary! Color plays an important role in gemstone jewelry, and the Amethyst and Peridot Necklace has plenty of it for you to show off! This is an unbelieveble color combination - the rich purple hue of the amethyst and the cool green peridot just look so natural together. This luxurious necklace is destined to be a favorite piece for a very fashion conscious woman ... finished with 14k gold filled beads and clasp, this is a very special and beautiful necklace indeed! Red is a favorite color for many women, and if you're one of them you'll want to see these fantastic Ruby and Rhodolite Garnet Earrings. Luxe 8mm ruby beads are complimented by sparkling faceted raspberry-red rhodolite garnet and gleaming sterling silver for a very hot and romantic look. These are simply stunning! Elizabeth's Black and White Party Earrings are a gorgeous basic style that are a classic, stylish design. They really are perfect for a formal party; the lustrous stick pearls are snow white with a fantastic sheen that you can't miss, even on your monitor. Combined with jet black faceted onyx beads and glittering sterling silver, they have a really luxurious appearance. Every woman should have a pair of earrings like these! I chose the vivid Apple Green Chrysophrase and Silver Earrings as the featured item today because they are a lovely example of the quality you'll find at Foret. The pure green color of the chrysoprase hand faceted nuggets is breathtaking! Combined with the antique finish silver beads, these have a look that cannot be duplicated - they truly are special! There is just so much more to see at Foret. Stop by and browse this shop, and be sure to add it to your favorites. Elizabeth is always listing new designs, and you'll want to check them out! And if you love jewelry with a metaphysical connection, be sure to visit her Divine Designs shop!
