Are you looking for one-of-a-kind 925 sterling silver charms? has a large and ever-growing collection of cooking charms, mini food charms, and drink charms for every need. In addition, Xinar specializes in offering themed charms for the most creative designers and DIY crafters. So whether you as a crafter have just started or have already made a name as a jewelry designer, there is always something new and worth collecting from Xinar’s online charms collections.

When we say ‘memorable,’ we truly mean it. Xinar’s sterling silver charms are all made in the USA and have undergone strict quality measures before being shipped out. You can expect the highest level of silver in each charm and the best prices upfront. In addition, you don’t need to haggle anymore because of Xinar’s Best Price Guarantee, which ensures that every charm that we pack is identical to the images you view on our website. As a result, you also get the highest quality each time.

Our silver charms are also manufactured using the lost wax casting process – a traditional yet highly intensive casting process. From creating the first charm for the master mold to despurring, our charms go through an incredibly detailed process before they reach your workbench.

The lost wax casting process needs to be accomplished by a master silversmith for the best results. And while 3D technology has helped a little, a lot still goes into making a $5 or $10 charm that goes onto someone’s neck or wrist. We love the process and passion that goes into each charm, and we hope that you enjoy our silver charms, too.

What Does Food Symbolize?

Socialization has always included some form of food or beverage consumption. Since the dawn of time, people have gathered around the table to share a meal. Sharing food with others can also show love and security, for example, when parents feed their children or when a mother gives her milk to her infant. Jesus taught us two thousand years ago to share our food with others.

He used food as a teaching tool and a revelation tool, and the way food is prepared or eaten has religious connotations. Bread and wine, for example, have symbolic significance in Christianity. In addition, many dietary practices have their origins in religious laws, such as eating or abstaining from certain foods following one’s religious convictions.

Defining the hierarchy of being in Greek mythology, food plays a role: there is food for gods, humans, and animals. In addition, symbolic interactions between people while eating, such as sitting at the head of the table, are common in modern societies, where food signifies status, power, and wealth.

Certain foods also symbolize wealth and social status, and foods are used as metaphors for parts of the human body involved in sexual relations. Food can have a system of symbolic meaning that is unique to each dish.

Aside from that, food has long been a popular subject among artists, who have used it to highlight social issues. Food is a particularly potent symbol because it can be interpreted in many ways, both in everyday life and on special occasions.

It can be used as a symbol in some contexts but not in others because it meets physical, emotional, and psychological needs. On the other hand, food has a solid ability to evoke sensory solid, emotional, and cognitive associations because it touches all the senses. This breadth of associations raises the symbolic stakes of food even further.

When it comes to food, anthropologist Victor Turner’s three properties of symbols are on full display. Condensation is the first step: a collection of related ideas or actions is assembled into a single unit. Turkey, for example, is symbolic of the American Thanksgiving holiday, which is marked by large family gatherings, elaborate feasts, themed menus, and, of course, football games. The second property of symbols is their ability to connect disparate concepts.

The Thanksgiving turkey, as a symbol, conjures up images of plentiful natural resources, a romanticized New England past, patriotism, and the warmth of family life during the changing seasons. Ideological meanings and sensory meanings can be found in symbols, which combine these two poles to ground conceptual references in the felt world. Apple pie, for example, is a dual symbol of patriotism and maternal nurturing in the United States, giving it greater symbolic heft while also lending it emotional resonance.

When foods become symbolic, they are similar qualities or are associated with a specific reference, whether real or imagined. The item’s physical structure or appearance, texture, color, flavor, and even its nutritional components are all analogous, or like, qualities. For example, many fruits and vegetables have been associated with various characteristics, such as the phallus (bananas), apples (apple-cheeked children), peaches (feminine attributes), and caffeinated beverages (energy and fun).

Symbolic associations with food can also be developed through factual or conceptual association. For example, cherry blossoms are often associated with welcoming the new season because they bloom in the early spring. When they ripen, other crops are also associated with the fall. Autumn and harvest-related holidays in the United States are marked using pumpkins, corn, and apples.

“Organic” symbols are those that develop meaning over time through use and practice, and their intentions appear to be logical and inevitable in the cultural context in which they are used. In addition, a culture’s symbols can be created and imposed from outside it. As a result of these “invented symbols,” individuals or institutions attempt to control the interpretation of food by affixing specific meanings to it.
