Popcorn Popping with Creative Team Member Kathy Thompson

Posted on | April 4, 2012 | 9 Comments


When I saw this ring bezel I instantly knew I wanted my ring to have a playful quality. With that in mind my thoughts led me back into my childhood. A time when my family would play games together, or go to a drive-in movie; a time when popcorn was always the treat we enjoyed. I have visions of my mom standing in front of the stove with a huge pan of popcorn. She would shake the pan vigorously to keep the kernels from sticking and from a child’s perspective it almost seemed as if she were dancing. It didn’t take long until I would hear the “pop”, “pop”, “pop” and take in that yummy smell knowing that soon it would be time for the family to play.

My Popcorn Popper ring has a wire cage that I created and set inside the ring bezel that I filled with ICE Resin® and some “popcorn” (white pearls). Once the resin cured I added some loose “popcorn”. Now when I wear the ring I can playfully shake my hand – like my mom used to shake the pan – and hear the “pop” of the “popcorn”. If only I could figure out a way to recreate that wonderful aroma!

    So much fun! I miss the drive-in’s…loading up the kiddos in their fuzzy footie pajamas, brown paper bags full of yummy popped corn and hot dogs wrapped in foil…

    Thanks for the fond memory flashback…

    See you soon… :-)
