Do Not Waste Your Money on Amazon Prime

I ordered 2 items thru Amazon Prime on Friday.  The promised delivery date is today, Sunday, January 24.  They have not arrived.   Instead I got an email with a bogus notice of attempted delivery. 

I deliberately stayed home all day just so I could wait for those items to be delivered.  They did not come.   No one knocked on my door.   No one left a notice of attempted delivery which I should have gotten, if in fact, they actually came to my door.   But no notice was left because no one tried to deliver the items.  It is totally bogus.

Now, when I try to contact Amazon about this problem, I find that it is virtually impossible to contact them or the sellers.   Putting this out on social media is the only recourse I have.

Natural Moonstone Rosary Garnets Mother of Sorrows

The Ave beads in this beautiful rosary are 6mm natural rainbow moonstone beads. These beads are called "rainbow" moonstone because have lots of "fire" or iridescence. When seen in bright light, these beads several different colors. This is difficult to catch with a camera.  The translucence of the beads gives them a subtle glow. This, too, can be seen in the photos The Pater beads are 8.5 natural garnets. These beads provide a nice contrast to the snow white moonstone beads. The garnets appear black in dim light and also appear black in the photos. They are actually a deep wine red color. The center honors Our Mother of Sorrows and the reverse shows a Pieta. Both the center and the crucifix are lead free pewter.  Please click here to learn more about this rosary and please visit my shop, The Rosary Works to see more of my wire wrapped, unbreakable rosaries.
