I'VE COME SO FAR
MADE IN U.S.A
The ONLY U.S.A. made premium jewelry brand
Hand-casted in the USA, this sterling silver wax seal necklace features the phrase “I’ve come so far I think I can run on just a little bit longer” on the front, and our Maritime USA logo stamp with .925 sterling silver marker on the back.
This is a phrase said frequently by Dr. Dean Thompson of Presbyterian College, most often when he is encouraging his students to persevere through a writing assignment, an academic semester, or even through life itself. The quote is originally attributed to Mother Willie Mae Ford Smith, a Black gospel singer from Rolling Forks, Mississippi who rose to American musical fame late in her singing career. The quote can be found embedded in the liner notes of her 1984 LP, “I Am Bound for Canaan Land,” and reads as follows: “As she likes to sing, ‘I’ve come so far, I believe I can run on some more.’”
Whatever race you may be running, we hope that this phrase reminds you to look back on all the progress you’ve made so far and encourages you to continue on towards your goal, however small or large, short-term or ongoing. Spark positive action and use new words to create new habits!

Love the idea and design
But the finished product I received was nothing like the beautiful piece in the picture . The contrast isn’t done nearly like one would expect . But again love the idea and I know what it means . I suggest a little better inspection of final product
I Have Come So Far
This is my second purchase of this wax seal pendant. I got one for my husband and later this one for myself. The message is so good for anyone struggling day to day. I rub it between my fingers when I have a negative thought or want to redirect my thoughts to a positive mindset. It as always is beautifully made and will be given to one of our girls as an heirloom.
It was a gift. I’m pretty sure it was loved.
