Break Your Chains

Make a bold statement of personal liberation with these hand-made handcuff earrings. The handcuff charms evoke thoughts of liberation and an awareness of our personal barriers. The charms are paired with pendants of black onyx, a material believed to promote the energy of happiness and good fortune, to create a free-spirited accessory that is both inspiring and empowering. Artist Mary Steratore gathers materials from around the globe - waxes and molds from Italy, silver charms from Thailand, and semi-precious stones from India - and then assembles and polishes her meaningful masterpieces here in the US.

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
