hera goddess pendant with blue topazby Mary Steratore
- the story
The Alpha Woman
Hera was a powerful goddess—a fact she was quite comfortable with. She could stand her ground and speak her mind, and the women of Greece looked to her for guidance and abundance.
Mary Steratore's divine necklace celebrates the strong spirit of women. The sculptural silver pendant features Hera's token, a peacock feather. The feathers represented her pride and watchfulness, but at the "eye" of this feather is a tiny cut-out heart, showing that love is at the center of it all. It's paired with a small charm of pale blue topaz—a stone traditionally associated with not only abundance and good health, but also the ability to solve problems and express ideas. 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.

- the maker
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
