I find a lot of inspiration William Ernest Henley's poem "Invictus" and it inspired this piece:
"It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul."
This 1" sterling silver disc is hand-cut in our shop from a sheet of sterling silver, stamped with "I am the captain of my soul" and the impressions are darkened. It is then polished by hand and given a lightly brushed / matte finish which we feel will help your piece looking its its best. Included is a sterling silver captain's wheel charm and your choice of 16 or 18" sterling silver chain.
**ALL pieces are sterling silver

ABOUT HAND STAMPING:
Stamping the letters is a much more durable and permanent method of creation as the text will not wear off like paint or ink and will last for many years. Unlike engraving, in which a shallow channel of metal is removed from the surface, stamping imprints the text more deeply.
Each design and letter is individually hammered one strike at a time, BY HAND. Because of this, there will be some variations in the spacing, depth of the designs and placement. This is not to be considered a defect but to a part of the character of the piece. Please be aware that the photos shown are simply a representation of previous items I have created and may not be exactly what you receive, as each item is uniquely created just for you.
