Reach For the Moon

As sure as night becomes day, change is the one constant in life. Mary Steratore's earrings are a glowing reminder that change, when met with hope and a sense of humor, can transform our lives into something magnificent. Each earring displays two meaningful charms. The moon, crafted from sterling silver, is a traditional symbol of transformation. Citrine, a sunny yellow stone, is reputed to bring happiness and positive energy. Comes with a card printed with the charms' meanings.

Artist Mary Steratore gathers her materials from around the globe: waxes and molds are made in Italy, silver charms are cast in Thailand, and the semi-precious stone pieces made in India. She assembles the necklace in the USA on silver earring hooks, also made in the 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

        These have become my favorite earrings! These earrings are large enough to be noticable, but are not overstated. The total earring length is 1 inch (photo). The earrings hang 3/4 inch past the tip of the ear. I am outdoors a lot and very active, and these earrings so far have stayed put - even in the wind, on the boat, and in the pool! I would highly recommend.

          I bought these for my daughter, who lives in another state, for her birthday and also to be a reminder of my love and support of her in the midst of change in her life. I paired them with the "Reach for the Moon" Charm necklace. She loved them!

              I bought these earrings for my Mom for Mother's Day. I have ordered from Uncommon Goods before, so I wasn't leery about the quality of the items. I order many things online and have them shipped as gifts. Having Uncommon Goods take care of the gift wrap is the way to go. My Mom raved about the really nice box that the earrings came in as well as the tshirt bag that the box came in. Uncommon Goods does a great job of making it clear that the merch is a gift rather than just printing a message on an invoice like you get when you order from [@]. Whenever I'm looking for special gifts, I come to Uncommon Goods first.
