Angel On Your Shoulder

You are surrounded by angels, whether you know it or not: friends, parents, or even strangers bringing joy, comfort or advice right when you need it. Honor those angels by wearing this enlightened necklace--or become one yourself by blessing someone with the reminder that they are not alone. The sterling silver pendant is cast with an angelic image reminiscent of Botticelli's famous cherubs. The 22k gold vermeil feather represents the angels' soaring connection between mortality and divinity.

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.

MarySteratore

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
