Did you ever hear of a business name that totally catches your attention? Some fun examples would be Indiana Bones and the Temple of Groom (dog grooming salon), The Found Sock (laundromat), Lawn & Order (landscaper) and Shear-Lock Combs (hair salon). These are actual business names.
What do you think of when you hear the name Waffles & Honey? My first thought is a restaurant, like a home town country restaurant.
Whatever Waffles & Honey is, it’s an adorable name.
Waffles & Honey is a company that creates jewelry. It’s was named after the owner’s (Karina Harris) pets. I think that is a fun idea. My family has several pets. I don’t think I could call a business Espn Velcro Kitty Padmé Anakin Bella Fishy Wishy Wudy (or dog, cats, fish and adopted wild bunny). Ha Ha. Unless I use the first initials, but EVKPABFWW doesn’t sound as cute as Waffles & Honey.
Karina’s passion for designing gorgeous jewelry started when she entered a local bead store in San Francisco. When she became a teenager she traveled a lot around the world including Africa, Asia and South America. She was inspired by the jewelry designs and textiles that she came across during her travels.
Karina’s designs for Waffles & Honey Jewelry reflects Karina’s travels.

Waffles & Honey was kind enough to send me a piece of jewelry to review. Let me tell you it was very hard to narrow it down to one piece. Each of their pieces is unique looking and very beautiful.
I finally selected the 3/2 Necklace in Labradorite. Not only is the necklace beautiful, but I love the legend that the stone contains Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) which explains why it has a “Labradoressence” (displays different colors). I thought it was a fun legend and the stone has a greenish-gray hue to it (my favorite color is green).
The necklace is 30″ long which is perfect for me. I don’t like necklaces that are too short. They often fall inside my shirt and no one gets to see them. This necklace is the perfect length.
The necklace has two different chains which I think is a nice touch. Most of the necklace is made of small, gold, oval links. The part of the necklace that connects the three stones is made with bigger and longer gold oval links.
I LOVE the stones. They are very pretty. They change color when the light hits them a certain way. They are very shiny too. They have good weight to them too.
The stones have a unique shape to them too. They remind me of chubby tear drops (for lack of a better description).
I have received a few compliments on the necklace and even my teenage daughter really likes it. I think it if it can impress a hard t0 impress teen that should tell you something. Ha Ha.
I tried to take my own photos but it didn’t do the necklace justice. The necklace is so much more beautiful in person.
I also love that it can be dressed up or dressed down. This piece is great for running errands around town or a night on the town. It’s very versatile and can be pair with other pieces if you are into the layered look.
