 Learn As You Shop!

Elizabeth creates spectaular handmade earrings, necklaces, bracelets and pendants using  materials with metaphysical, healing and symbolic significance, and you will learn of about these materials as you shop and read through her listings.

This crystal is a Left Activation Tibetan Quartz Pendulum

Elizabeth explains the significance of this piece as follows:

 "A Left Activation Crystal is recognized by an inclined window, or facet located on the left side of the primary face of the crystal. It primarily activates and increases performance of the left brain function. Used with the Right Activation crystal, it brings a melding of the right and left brain abilities and a synthesis of same. It is sometimes called a "time link". The left leaning link is said to be a time link to the past." On a more simplistic level, as a healing tool this kind of crystal can be intended to draw out energy."

At Foret you will find Talismen which can be worn, or kept close to you in your pocket, car, on your desk, etc.
What exactly is a Talisman? 
It is an object with a presence that exercises a remarkable or powerful influence on human feelings or actions.  It is often an "amulet",  a small charm which is worn to ward off evil, harm, or illness or to bring good fortune.
Shopping at Foret is like an escape to an exotic locale. Elizabeth has a second shop, quite worthy of a visit, as well. At Foret Two,  where she sells supplies and vintage items, your imagination will run wild with ideas of the unique jewelry and accessory projects you will create.

Visiting Foret and Foret Two will make you happy. You will feel Elizabeth's calming and healing energy as you are tempted by the the aesthetic beauty and healing power of each unique artisan piece of jewelry.
