Goldfish and Axolotl Stretch Bracelets

About this design:

I love watery pets and have two aquariums. I'd love to have an axolotyl, but have decided to wait on it for now.


LB Green Girl Charms, LB druzy beads and Czech glass flowers also from LB.

    Attaching the charms with split rings is good to keep them safe. I love these bracelets.

    I too love axolotls – the “salamander that never grows up” – especially their ferny little gills. As the keeper says on the “behind the scenes” zoo show on Animal planet, “Slimy is the new fuzzy!” But whatever you do, don’t buy “wild-caught” as they are highly endangered, poor little things.
    Anyway the bracelet is delightful. Is that a baby honu I see with the axolotl?

    Thanks for all the nice comments!! Axolotl’s buddy is a pearscale goldfish! Fortunately there are a couple of axolotl breeders in my area should I decide to take the plunge!

    Great design with the watery pets. The fish is certainly cute and every one should have a smiling axolotl!

    These bracelets are so cool. I really like the way you attached the charms. The goldfish is just adorable. I had no idea what an axolotl was until today. (Thanks for the photo CC).

    C, I haven’t seen any of your designs in the gallery before–look forward to your future postings. Your critters gave me a big smile. Because of my husband’s health, we had to give up our aquarium–a sad day indeed. But I still grace my desktop with a variety of fish, amphibians, and reptiles to name a few. Some of these creatures are utterly amazing!
