A Peace of the Past

Few people today may recall the Greek goddess Eirene, and yet all of us still seek her in our lives: her name literally means "peace." Eirene brought an end to conflict, and ushered in seasons of harmony and abundance.

Mary Steratore's divine necklace is made to invite that same spirit of peace into your own life. The sculptural silver pendant captures Eirene's face in a moment of perfect serenity, framed by the flowing sweep of her hair. It's paired with a small charm of amethyst—a stone traditionally believed to support feelings of peace, balance and inner strength. The stone is hand cut and mounted in silver. Steratore's necklaces are truly global creations: the molds are made in Italy, the silver charms are cast in Thailand, the semi-precious stone charms are made in India, and the silver ball chain is made in USA.

Mary Steratore

It can be quite daunting trading one career for another, especially when there are PhD's involved. But for Mary Steratore, it 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 all over Italy and the US, she developed a new line of jewelry, dubbed b.u., as an extension of her sculpting. Drawing from Steratore's vast knowledge of artifacts and her extensive world travels, b.u. creations have an old-world aesthetic. Each piece is meticulously hand-made using a long-lost wax-casting method. With the help of Rome's top notch artisans, Steratore brings a little beauty and a lot of ancient wisdom into everyday, modern lives. collection
