An Open Book

Take a page from Mary Steratore's evocative necklace that provides subtle encouragement to lead a fulfilling life. Pale green peridot is believed to promote optimism and to protect those who wear it from dwelling on the negative. The hand-stamped sterling silver and 22kt gold-plated charms are sculpted in Italy, cast in Thailand, and accented with peridot from India.

Mary Steratore

Mary Steratore

It can be quite daunting trading one career for another, especially when there are PhDs involved. But for Mary Steratore, such a change led to the realization of true artistic expression. Leaving archaeology to create her own fine art, Steratore settled in Rome where her paintings and sculptures were well-received. After showing her work throughout Italy and the US, she developed b.u., a new line of jewelry inspired by her sculpting.
