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

Although the goddess Eirene is not as recognizable as the traditional peace sign, her message is one in the same. Mary Steratore's sterling silver depiction of Eirene (complete with an amethyst) is a subtler way to wear the message of peace. What other goddesses would you like to see represented in this line?

Vote: Thumbs down!

I like the concept of goddess jewelry, but I find the face a little odd looking

Vote: Thumbs up!

Nice piece

Vote: Thumbs down!

needs a different chain

Vote: Thumbs down!

Can't tell what it is if someone is wearing it, I think. I'm not into obviously pagan stuff.

Vote: Thumbs down!

looks odd.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Not very ethereal looking for a goddess...not quite my style either. Might work for some but to me just looks poorly crafted.

Vote: Thumbs down!

What is this suppose to be? It looks like a glob.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Not impressed with the actual pendant

Face oddly shaped

I like the idea of these necklaces, but the faces are very odd looking.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Can't tell what it is, looks like a blob.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Cute idea, but I don't really like it.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Face in pendant is odd looking, not cute and the chain looks cheap and like it belongs with dog tags.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Something not quite right about the face.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Love the concept...don't get the portrait!

Vote: Thumbs up!

I only like it because my grandmother and daughter are both named "Irene".

Vote: Thumbs down!

the face looks messy

Vote: Thumbs down!

really odd looking. The face looks vague and smushy

Vote: Thumbs down!

nope, you'd have to tell everyone what it was supposed to be.

Vote: Thumbs down!

I like the meaning behind it, but the necklace itself isn't that appealing-not even the chain.


Oh! I like this. And who doesn't need a little more peace?

Vote: Thumbs down!

I don't see "perfect serenity" here - I wouldn't wear something ugly around my neck.

Vote: Thumbs down!

I like goddess jewelry however this piece does not have an appealing profile. The chain does not fit a goddess theme.

Vote: Thumbs down!

Again, love the idea, but the face is too stylized to be attractive to wear.




Really weird looking face. Wouldn't buy.
