We don’t need to tell you how much we love food here at Cool Mom Eats. So when we discovered the Delicacies Jewelry collection online, we had to share.

Delicacies is a lovely jewelry collection of food ingredient charms with a meaningful twist created by food-loving mom Nicolle Nelson. Not only does a portion of every sale go to a nonprofit organization that fights hunger and food insecurity, but each featured ingredient also comes with its own “ingredient mythology.”  Did you know, for example, that avocado promotes “beauty, fertility, love, and passion” or that lobster represents “perseverance, protection, renewal, and strength?”

Cool, right?

On the Delicacies site, you choose your favorite ingredient by perusing the many available options or by selecting what you’d like your ingredient to represent, from beauty to passion to renewal in the Meaning and Lore Finder. Or, even more fun, take the online quiz to help you find your spirit ingredient. I discovered that mine is avocado, which doesn’t surprise me — I love them.

Once you’ve chosen which ingredient is right for you, you can select how to wear it, on either a bracelet or a necklace.
