Mary Steratore

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 bought this for my granddaughter's college graduation gift. It is a piece that can be worn alone or with other jewelry. She is not one to wear large jewelry so it was perfect for her and she put it on right away. I would definitely buy others of this type for gifts and for myself.
            UPS was late in delivering it to us and when I called to check on it the company sent another one to me to the location I was traveling to. Then figured out how to deal with UPS. What a great thing to know, this is a good company to deal with.

                  I wanted something special for my sister. Not only did this have her birthstone in it, it was simplistically beautiful. A one of a kind and she just loved it. After surviving breast cancer, she is reinventing herself and this just reminds her how courageous she is!

                    I purchased this product for my sister. She is a Doctor of Physical Therapy. Most of her day is spent doing some type of physical therapy for stroke patients and spinal cord injuries. Her job is labor intensive but fulfilling. When she goes out to dinner and joins friends for happy hour her goal is to get comfortably, stylish as quickly as possible. This necklace represents both a practical application in its simple design but doubles as a beautiful representation of her personality. For the quietly, courageous ones in our life it's the perfect balance of elegance and simplicity.

                      Similar items are less expensive at Kohl's.

                      Like the concept but not the end result.
