About

We love axolotls!
We love pins!
Let's make some new axolotl pins!

In 2016 I released my very first enamel pin design. This simple, smiling axolotl pin kickstarted my enamel pin business which has sustained me for over 2 years. I will be forever grateful to this community for giving me that opportunity!

As much as I love my original aoxlotl design, it has begun to show its age and I'd like to give it an adorable makeover for 2019. I hope you love the new design as much as I do!

MEET THE 'LOTLS

Albino Axolotl
Albino Axolotl

Gari is super sweet and energetic! She loves making other ‘lotls smile by telling bad jokes and making funny faces. She adores holidays and family gatherings where she can see her loved ones all together and give them big, squishy hugs!

Specs
• Hard enamel lapel pin plated in copper (rose gold).
• Double posted with two PVC rubber clutches.
• Approximately 35mm (1.3 inches) tall.

Golden Axolotl
Golden Axolotl

Takuan is a bit of a troublemaker and loves to play pranks on his friends. It’s all in good fun and he’s careful not to take his tomfoolery too far. Despite his mischievous nature, he has a heart of gold and is quick to help any ‘lotl in need.

Specs
• Hard enamel lapel pin plated in gold.
• Double posted with two PVC rubber clutches.
• Approximately 35mm (1.3 inches) tall.

Melanoid Axolotl
Melanoid Axolotl

Umeboshi is quiet and a bit reserved. They would rather curl up with a good book than go to a noisy party. They can be a little salty at times which can put some ‘lotls off, but those closest to them know that they're a big softy on the inside.

Specs
• Hard enamel lapel pin plated in nickel.
• Double posted with two PVC rubber clutches.
• Approximately 35mm (1.3 inches) tall.

STRETCH GOALS

There won't be any other pins added to this campaign, but I have a few extra goodies in mind if this project is overfunded. Details will be posted after the initial goal is reached!

Q&A

Why can't I buy any number/combination of pins that I want?
I'm trying to keep this campaign as simple as possible. This set up will allow me to streamline my fulfillment process and get your pins out to you asap! If you would like to purchase additional pins, extras will be available in my shop at a later date.

Thanks a 'lotl for your support!!

Risks and challenges

I have been producing enamel pins for over 2 years and have confidence that this project will go smoothly. Very rarely I receive a bad batch of pins that need to be remade which could cause delays. I will keep my backers updated every step of the way and let you know immediately if any problems arise and how I plan to resolve them.
