I picked up my order from FireMountain Gems yesterday. I had been very disappointed that it had not come in on Friday as predicted by the customer service rep at FMG. It probably arrived on Saturday, when I could not go by to see if I had anything. I’d say the regular ground delivery was reasonable – 5-6 business days.
I received the 11 different box clasps I had ordered, the two strands of beads (mixed and black tourmalines), and two packets of donuts — one clear crystal and one packet of amethyst donuts. I’m very happy with the clasps. I think they will work with the bracelets I make. (I even got one style that I had not been able to find anywhere for several years). The donuts are a different thing. I guess I was not paying attention to size when I ordered them. They are kind of small. Well, that is good because I will have to think of something to do with them. I have 5 of each. The amethysts are kind of strange for me – it had never occurred to me that I would receive amethyst donuts that look like raspberry swirl ice cream. I did not even know that there was amethyst that had a lot of opaque white in it– the catalog sure did not indicate that possibility. Oh well. There is probably someone who wants an amethyst ice cream necklace.
I sure do wish that FMG had an affiliate program – with all this publicity I am giving them.
