Right as Rain

Plants need rain in order to grow up strong. So if a storm blows through, why not run outside and learn to dance in the rain! Mary Steratore's splashy necklace is decked with three charms: a silver raindrop and two semiprecious stones. Aquamarine is believed to promote courage and positive energy, and peridot is thought to support healing, rebirth and renewal. Comes with a card printed with the stones' meanings.

Artist Mary Steratore gathers her materials from around the globe: waxes and molds are made in Italy, the charms are cast in Thailand, and the chain is made in the USA. She assembles the final necklace in the 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

                There are a lot of comments here regarding the size. Personally, I think the size is perfect; not too small, not too big. But you should check the measurements against a ruler first, so that you aren't disappointed. I love the meaning behind the necklace and all the symbols. However... my birthstone is an aquamarine. And the stone that is on the necklace is definitely not an aquamarine. Not even close. It's clear. JUST LIKE THE PICTURE. I should've known better, but I was hoping that the picture misrepresented the stone.
