SKILLED SAILOR Quote - Brass Block Necklace



"A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor." ~Franklin D. Roosevelt

To us, this quote addresses the inevitable hardships that we face in life and how enduring them and learning from them gives us skills to weather the next storm that comes our way. A smooth sea can be helpful for initial training in basics and concepts, but how well lessons were learned are truly proven when push comes to shove.

Hand-crafted from start to finish, this brass block pendant is meant to serve as a reminder to learn and grow through the difficulties of life, and its 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.

No longer lost at sea!

The entire shopping experience has been A+. My necklace is meaningful and beautiful, I wear it every day. The swag that was included was the sort of thing that that creates lifelong clients, plus, I could always use another boat. I’ll definitely be back for more, for gifts and myself. Thanks so much Maritime Supply! Robin

Great customer service

When ordering, I accidentally put the wrong address in for where to ship my necklace. Within a couple ours if ordering it I received an email asking about my address and we had it fixed in minutes!
