OMG. So after nine months of endless delays, we are finally at the finishing phase and the glass beads for the finish (CL Industries Sunstone Pearl Ice) is stuck somewhere at sea on a boat from China and they have no idea when it's going to be in. Maybe 6 weeks, who knows?

Does anyone know if this is industry-wide? I know there are other finish manufactures that make similar products. We're beyond frustrated with yet another open ended delay.

The Suez canal issue didn't help things on that front either.
