Courage to Change Helix Pendant
18" cable chain
2" long, 0.25" wide
This elongated pendant suggest a helix with a seemingly simple twist. The pendant will oscillate when worn.
This engraved pendant stylishly carries a daily
reminder to persevere in the face of adversity.
It is derived from the longer Serenity Prayer:
God, grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
The courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.
Engraved jewelry of this kind is a modern
interpretation of the medieval craft of poesy
inscription. Poesy jewelry, particularly rings,
were popular throughout Europe in the
sixteenth and seventeenth centuries,
particularly in England and France. Most
popular as romantic gifts or wedding rings,
poesy inscriptions also appear on other items
of jewelry and fine metalwork for protection,
devotion and inspiration.
