The custom pin was gorgeous and went prefectly with the shawl! Thanks for working with me to design it and for offering so many options. It was wonderful working with you.

I love my little sheepy pin! It is gorgeous and works perfectly with my knitted scarfs and shawls. The box it arrived in was lovely with a personal note inside.

About

" I remind you of WHO!?"

The day my husband told me I reminded him of his grandmother was the day Everyday Peacocks was born. I love the fact that many ladies have been knitting for fifty or more years, but at the ripe young age of 29 (again... for the last 5 or 6 years now) I do not want to be seen as an old lady-- just because I knit!

This made me start thinking about how self-conscious I used to feel if someone saw me with my needles. I love knitting and some of the patterns I see are incredibly trendy in the fashion world, so why should this be considered an elderly hobby? More and more ladies-- of all ages-- are taking up wool and joining the knitting revolution, dispelling these antiquated stereotypes. We're knitting in public, with wild colors, funky fibers, and our eye on style! We are starting to flaunt our fiber flair and I am excited to be a part of this!

With items taking weeks, months, and sometimes even years to complete, we spend a lot of time with our projects and come to care for them greatly. I think this is why I enjoy fancy stitch markers and fun colored knitting needles so much!-- because I love to see my projects all dressed up even though it might still be a long while before I get to wear them. I'm very proud of my knitting, so I dress my yarn up in Sterling Silver and show it off!

Like a peacock, I strut around with my fancy yarn jewelry and it feels good! We all need to feel like peacocks from time to time, so why not every day? That is the reason I created this brand-- to offer an alternative to boring gray stitch holders, and plain plastic rings. I want to offer a completely decadent knitting experience, in public or at home, so that every woman can say they feel like a peacock everyday!

Welcome to Everyday Peacocks! Thanks for strutting on in and taking a look around! I think all Fiber Enthusiasts should not only enjoy their finished projects, but they should celebrate them as masterpieces as well. Here at Everyday Peacocks I enjoy creating items to help showcase your Yarny Goodness so you can be a Peacock Everyday! I want your experience with us to be wonderfully unique so you will want to come back and check out our new goodies as they hatch!

I've tried to make my store policies as complete and specific as possible, but please understand that as we grow, some of our policies might change. If you have any questions, or if you are unsure about any of the policies I have stated below, please don't hesitate to contact me-- my door is always open to my guests and friends!!! I hope we develop a great relationship. Let's show off our feathers together!

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Payment
Currently I accept payment through Paypal, Etsy Gift Cards, and Etsy Direct Checkout. I do not start working on an item until payment is received along with any special requests. Then the piece is crafted specifically for you! ♥ (Please see below under "Additional Information" for timeline guides.)

Because of the time involved in the transport of check or money order through the postal service, I typically do not like this method of payment-- since it generally will add one to two weeks (sometimes more) onto the time it takes for me to deliver your jewelry to you. However, if you are very local to the Montreal region, or would like me to consider check, money order, or Canadian bank transfer of funds, please contact me before making a purchase so that we can discuss that option. As with a Paypal purchase, I will not begin working on your item until funds are received.
Shipping
I try to ship items two times per week, on Tuesdays and Fridays. Whenever possible I use the local postal system to help ensure the best shipping costs.

I ship locally from Canada and sometimes from the United States. But since I am locally based in Canada, duties and custom fees will be applied to any international orders (except the United States). In most cases, these fees will be minimal, but you will most likely be asked to pay them upon delivery. I can not accept payment for these fees or quote you a price-- they are determined by the customs agent in the country receiving the package.

Sometimes delays occur that are beyond my control, such as holidays, inclimate weather, or customs delays. Please do not hold me accountable for these as they are beyond my control. Likewise, I can not be responsible for theft or loss of any uninsured package. If you would like to make sure your shipment is properly insured, please contact me before purchase so that I can make any changes or arrangements that might be necessary.

I can expedite shipping if you like. Please contact me with dates and locations before purchase so that I can give you an accurate quote and make any necessary adjustments.
Refunds and Exchanges
I'm sorry, but at this time I generally can not accept returns. All items are made individually for each specific order, and many of these have been personalized in some way. I try to be completely accurate with my item descriptions. Please check the specifics carefully before purchasing to ensure the item meets your needs. If you have any questions about an item, please feel free to ask! I will answer your questions as thoroughly as I can.
Additional policies and FAQs
PRODUCTION TIMES:

Typically you can expect your order to be ready in less than a week. It sometimes takes a bit longer if you have requested several items, or if I have received a high volume of orders around the same time as yours. (If you need the item by a specific date, please contact me before purchase so that we can discuss if this is possible.)

MATERIALS:

Currently I am using 925/10 Sterling Silver filled wire for all my jewelry. This wire is a great medium because it looks, acts, and feels like Sterling Silver but with the added strength of the brass or copper core it is bonded to. It is not the same as silver plated wire. There is much more silver (10% of the total weight is from the silver content) which make it very durable and not likely to flake. If you have any concerns or questions about Sterling Silver filled wire, you can find more information here:

CUSTOM ORDERS:

I love custom orders! As an artist, it's a wonderfully intimate experience to create such a special item. Since it will be a unique piece, please expect longer than normal production times. During production of custom orders, I will be in contact with pictures at key points during the creation for approval before continuing so timely communication with me will help to speed up the process. As with all other items, I will not start working on a custom order until payment is received. Likewise, because of the unique nature of a custom item, I can not offer refunds on custom orders.

SPECIAL REQUESTS:

Do you have a special request for an item you purchased? I would love to do this for you if I can! Is it a gift? Maybe you want a special note enclosed before sending. Let me know what you would like, and I'll see what I can do!

PACKAGING:

I ship all jewelry items individually in resealable plastic bags to help properly protect the precious metals and stones. These are then placed in structurally firm boxes before being placed in mailers to help prevent crushing damage which may occur during shipping.

CUSTOMER SATISFACTION:

All of Everyday Peacock's products are handmade and therefore no two are the same-- even if they are similar. So I can understand that sometimes items will look slightly different than the picture representing them. For me, this is an exciting element of buying items from the artist. However, if you are not completely satisfied, or if your item is truly unusable for you, please contact me as to the nature of your complaint, and I will see what I can do to correct the problem. In some cases I may consider a store credit or exchange with a small restocking fee. This is strictly on a case by case basis. If an agreement can be reached, I will contact you by email about the details. Please do not send any items to me without contacting me first--it will not ensure an exchange or refund.

If you ever have any problems with me or my shop, please contact me and I will do my best to resolve the issue. I want every Peacocks experience to be a fabulous one! ^_^
