Blog Anniversary Final Giveaway-Win a Fortune Pyramid

16 Comments

For the fourth and final giveaway in my blog anniversary celebration, I am giving away one of my Fortune Pyramid Boxes

I first learned how to create unique shaped vessels in a workshop with Kathleen Dustin. The pyramid shape was one of my favorites. It still is.

There is a lot of symbolism associated with the pyramid shape. It can symbolize heaven, the sun, and the earth. Often it appears as a site of worship. The triangular shape is also associated with the Trinity and the four elements. When inverted (downward pointing) the triangle represent woman or the feminine.

What I love about these little boxes is the curious merging of heaviness and lightness. People believe the triangle is solid and heavy. Then they pick it up and “ooo” and “ahh” over its lightness.

My Fortune Pyramids are also unique because they contain a special quote inside the lid. The quotes are removable so you can replace it with another quote or prayer or wish.

This pyramid is created with polymer clay. The surface design is made with silver and black clay using the Mokume Gane technique. Three solid columns balance the pyramid. It measures 3″ tall and 3″ wide on all sides.

The number 3 represents perfect harmony; the union of unity and diversity.

Pyramid with Quote

The quote associated with this pyramid states “Friends are Treasures.” As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to value my friendships much more than I have in the past. And the response to my weekly giveaways has shown me my friends are both close by and far away. In person and virtual.

If you’d like to enter this final giveaway, just leave a comment on this post and share a quote you might put inside the pyramid if you win it. Please include an email address when you leave a comment so I may notify you if you win. The pyramid ships in a gift box and includes a description card.

Comments will remain open till midnight EST on Tuesday, August 30. The winner will be chosen on Wednesday. Giveaway items will be shipped via USPS and limited to U.S. residents. I apologize for the restriction on shipping.

  2. Really cool little box. I love the idea. I have really enjoyed your blog.

  3. There is a Celtic quote that says “we all tremble the web of the world”. I always try to remember that when I walk out into the world, every act, good or bad, has na affect on someone, somewhere at sometime.
    The Pyramid is lovely.

  5. What a wonderful pyramid box! I would love to win it!

    My Grandfather’s quote: “Tough times don’t last, tough people do.”

  6. What a clever design!!
    My favorite quote which has helped me survive most of things in life is:

    “Life is a Grindstone.
    Whether it grinds or polish, depends on what you are made of”

    PS: don’t live in US, But wanted to share my quote 🙂

  7. Reminds me of a meditation – triangle a symbol for the Holy Trinity – Sitting, envision God’s white light coming down upon you and enveloping you all around in a pyramid shape, warming and carressing your whole being. You are at one with All There Is, the Great Creator. We are all one.

  8. Amy that is just beautiful! What a great idea and a good job you did on that pyramid. The quote I would put inside to remind me that all is well is “In the world you have tribulation, but be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world”.
