Thank you so much for your support. LEARN MORE

Hand-crafted from start to finish, this stamped coin features the phrase “When the wind fails, take to the oars,” with a small oar at the bottom of the phrase.

We drew inspiration for this phrase from the Latin proverb, DESTITUTUS VENTIS, REMOS ADHIBE, commonly translated as “If the wind will not serve, take to the oars.” While we usually prefer to use the Latin versions of mottos, we felt that the more direct English translation of this one resonated more deeply with the self-motivated, perseverance, do-it-yourself theme we were aiming for with our 2021 collection.

We want this phrase to encourage folks to put action and effort into changes they want in the world, especially since 2020 really took the wind out of our sails. We all have goals we want to achieve in 2021, and forming the habit of putting in the work when our breeze of external motivation wanes will be the force that gets us there in the end.



- Coin pendant is 1" in diameter.

Purchase this coin as a keychain instead of a necklace here.

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

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.

3.) Read your personal manifesto every morning and wear your memento pendant daily as a physical reminder of your newly found direction.

Beautiful

Molly in customer service is absolutely wonderful to deal with. I lost a necklace in transit and they so graciously found me a new one - even though it’s not produced anymore. Their artistry and craft is top notch and I highly recommend them to family and friends.

Gift

Got this for my brother who is retiring after more then 30 years on ships. He loved the simple, yet rugged look of the necklace.
