SKILLED SAILOR - 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.

This 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.

Great product

Great quality with both the pendant and the chain… Very impressed. The only thing I would’ve done differently would be to get the longer chain. I am obviously taller than the model so the chain is just a little short. That is my lack of insights when ordering, not with the company. I am very very pleased with my purchase

Love both pieces, not the chain lengths

I ordered two pieces and love them both. They were shipped out very fast which was great as well. The ONE thing that I'm a little annoyed by is the chain length options. The short ones were too short and the long ones were too long. None of them really fit for what I want so I'll likely have to get my own chains for both pieces, or have them both altered, which is probably expensive.

A happy seafarer

Creative pieces, great craftsmanship, and even better customer service. I couldn't be happier with my first experience with Maritime Supply Co. I'll definitely be back!
