HOLD FAST - Brass Block Necklace


Hand-crafted from start to finish, this brass block pendant features the phrase "HOLD FAST." 

Historically, “hold fast” was a command given to sailors when approaching a storm, warning them to grip tight the ship’s rigging to avoid being washed overboard by the waves and rain as the ship plunged through the sea. This necklace will help remind you to weather whatever storm life may throw at you by holding fast to what is important.

The pendant’s pleasant weight against your chest will provide a constant nudge to live out this ideal.

Pendant measures 1.5" x 0.25" x 0.25".

If you are unsure about which chain length to order, please read our suggestions on the FAQ page.

If you would prefer this pendant on a leather cord instead of a chain, you can find that here.

Please note: All our brass pendants are raw brass, meaning they are not electroplated and will develop a beautiful patina over time. We recommend polishing it with a soft cloth to help keep your pendant's original shine if you prefer the bright metal look.


All of our customers are part of our crew, and we take care of our own. If you have any issues with your order, we will do everything we can to fix the problem.

Storm’s coming

I love this necklace. From sentiment to chain - I bought one for myself and then had to get one for my boatmate- my wife. We’ve weathered storms together by holding fast to each other and all we believe in, like the power of water!

Love it!

My necklace just came today (got the HOLD FAST - Brass Block Necklace - Antique Brass Curb Chain 22"), and I couldn't put it on fast enough! This past year has been an especially tough one, and just like the description says; the ever present weight against my chest and around my neck serves as a reminder to hang in there; to Hold Fast, to keep hold of my faith in Christ and to keep working/pushing hard to achieve my goals.
