People always ask me how I got the name Applepear for my jewelry line. I’ve always named my pets after food. When I was younger, I had hamsters named Truffle and Butterscotch. Then I had rabbits named Chicklet and Cadbury (remember the Cadbury bunny?). Then I had dogs named Chip and Tofu. It was only natural that I named my business after food as well. I’m a big fan of applepears. You may know them as Asian pears. They are sweet and fresh, the vibe I was going for with my jewelry. Applepear's also have lots of fiber…and who doesn’t need more of that ;-).
