  • the maker
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

      Comments about REACH FOR THE MOON CHARM NECKLACE:

      I purchased this necklace for a graduation from college gift. LOVED the sentiment, perfect for the occasion. However, when it arived, it looked too cheap to give to the specal young woman it was meant for.Very small charms, and very flimsy chain. I will be returning it, and hurrying to the store to find something else. I regret that I paid $19.95 extra to get it here on time!

        This was a graduation gift for my stepdaughter, and she loved the meaning behind all the charms -- though we were all surprised by just how tiny they really are. The only problem was that the chain broke the first day she wore it, but everyone at Uncommon Goods was fantastic about getting us a speedy replacement.

          The necklace fit the occasion, the person and the price tag very nicely. It was purchased as much for the sentiment on the card as the actual necklace.

She like a lot of teens these days have times when things get to be too much for them emotionally and I am hoping that this necklace - when she looks at it - will give her the inspiration she needs to understand that things always get better and that its up to her to stay strong and she will achieve whatever it is she wants..

                            We reach for the moon when it comes to finding unique designs, and we think this one is out of this world! Would you give this sterling silver necklace to a loved one as a graduation, new job, promotion, or "just because" gift?

                            The necklace is cute and I would buy but not for $55...maybe $25.

                            It really doesn't look worth the price. I have seen similar items for less

                            I like them and the concept, but $30 is reasonable. $55 is too much

                            Cute and trendy. Have seen a number of other similar necklaces. Not sure it would sell for $55 as others are selling for much less

                            I haven't seen this exact necklace, but it looks like many other items available at other retailers (ie - RedEnvelope or James Avery). Just not "uncommon" enough for Uncommon Goods.

                            So beautiful! Very nice piece for a birthday or just because gift :)

                            it did remind me of Dogeared.

                            Different...like the concept

                            Very symbolic...definite gift material, but way too expensive...

                            very very pretty but unless the chain itself is also sterling, I wouldn't pay $55 for. I would buy one for myself

                            Not fond of the chain. Prefer link chain.

                            Kimberly Britko-Leese Love this....and would love for me to finally reach one, if not several more, of my dreams and goals. After all the heartache, coping with the circumstances, and repercussions...and then trying to stand back up on my two feet, alone...is daunting and a true test of what love really is, what it really means....and how I want to still believe in it. This will help instill self-confidence

                            I think there should be a variety of these offered -- other messages and charms. Perhaps a way to pick 4. A nice alternative to the stamped metal charms.

                            I definitely like the idea of it, but the moon doesn't really look like a moon to me, and I don't like the chain.

                            I love necklaces with different pendants, but I think it may not hang well with all the pendants being the same size and so similar in shape.

                            Price is a little too high. I'd say... $45 is enough.

                            The look is not unique, and one can find or make a necklace just as nice as this. Maybe even nicer...... As for the price, too much.
