On to Victory

When the armies of ancient Greece went into battle, they were accompanied by the goddess Nike. Her name literally means Victory, and she would fly around the battlefield rewarding feats of courage and heroic sacrifice.

Mary Steratore's divine necklace is a dramatic tribute to the heroic acts of modern, daily life. The sculptural silver pendant depicts Nike in flight, with flowing dress and wings swept out behind her. It's paired with a small, drop-shaped charm of rock crystal—a stone believed to help maintain emotional balance, by absorbing, storing and releasing energy as needed. 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 mad 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
