TAKE TO THE OARS - Brass Coin Necklace

$24

Part of our 2021 Motivation collection.

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.

Fantastic!

I bought this as an heirloom piece. I plan on wearing it for years, but I’ll eventually give it to my daughter. Maybe when she graduates. Maybe on her wedding day. The message really spoke to me and I know it will resonate with my daughter as she matures and faces more of life’s challenges. The quality is outstanding. I highly recommend MS Co. Thank you!!!
