Sterling Silver Wax Seal Necklace - I'VE COME SO FAR Quote


One of our best-selling phrases, now offered in a single-sided wax seal design.

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. Remain steadfast, and stay the course!

So impressed

I had such a lovely experience with my purchase! Everything came packaged so nicely and the shipping was so quick. The necklace was very high quality and looked just like the photo. 10/10 would recommend!

Great piece

Love it, but I ordered the chain too long, so now I'll probably never wear it.

Love It!

Love the leather strap option! And the wax seal is a nice size, not too heavy or light.
