Blog Anniversary Week 4: The Final Winner

At the beginning of this month I invited my readers to join me in celebrating my blog’s four year anniversary with weekly giveaways. Each week on Friday, I announced the giveaway items: books, jewelry, artwork. The response to these giveaways has been great and I am deeply touched by your participation.

Today we come to the final drawing for the last giveaway of the month: one of my Fortune Pyramids. And it only seemed appropriate that this final drawing take place with a larger pyramid.

The Dream Pyramid is made from blue pearl clay. Three hand carved words are featured on each side of the pyramid: Dream, Create, Self. This pyramid is 4″ all around and stands on three scrolling legs. It is part of my personal collection.

The names of the participants were written on paper, folded and poured into the Dream Pyramid

I shook the pyramid to mix up the names.

I reached in and pulled out one name.

And the winner of my silver and black Fortune Pyramid is…..

Jean Webb!!!!!

Congratulations Jean.

Thank you again to everyone who has participated in the giveaways this month. May you all have good fortune. And have an excellent Labor Day weekend.

Blog Anniversary Final Giveaway-Win a Fortune Pyramid

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.
