  • the story

Full of Life

Some people have an extraordinary ability to embrace life with hope and enthusiasm. Mary Steratore's handcrafted earrings can be a spirited token of affection for one of those special people--or wear them yourself as a reminder of the goodness in your life.

The dangling, sterling silver bar is actually a Maori symbol called a roimata. The word means "teardrop", but it's used to represent comfort, healing and strength. It’s paired with pendants of square-cut garnet, a stone traditionally believed to promote vitality, courage, passion and love. Comes with a card printed with the charms' meanings.

Artist Mary Steratore gathers her materials from around the globe: waxes and molds are made in Italy, silver charms are cast in Thailand, and the semi-precious stone pieces made in India. She assembles the necklace in the USA on a silver earring hooks, also made 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

          I have been wearing these earrings daily. I love them and their backstory, especially because they include my birthstone. The quality and craftsmanship is excellent.

          The earrings arrived even more quickly than promised. I am supremely pleased with this purchase and will not hesitate to purchase Uncommon Goods in the future.

            Easy ordering; fast delivery; great price; great product - I should buy another pair because I lose earrings and would hate to lose one of these. I'll wear them all the time.

                My dearest friend's birthday is in January and I was looking for something to give her that would be unique and very special and these earrings were perfect. Once she received them, she immediately texted me to let me know that these would now become her favorite earrings. They were the perfect gift!

                these earring were just as described and picured. They are truly of good quality - the only complaint is that they do get lost with my dark brown hair of medium length but great when hair is up.

                  I like things, especially jewelry, that are made with materials that have meaning and spiritual uses. As with metals, wood, glass, gems, symbols, etc. to help me find my path in life.

                    She loves them. Garnets are her birthstone, and the silver with the garnets goes well with her coloring.
