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 THE PATH NECKLACE:

        For a young woman who is graduation with a degree in criminal justice this was perhaps the most meaningful gift that I could have purchased.
        It conveyed all that I could have wished for her and will remind her without overwhelming on a daily basis what life can hold for her.

          Bought this for a graduation gift for my sister since I felt the meaning fit well. The charms are smaller than I expected, but I am still happy with it. Comes in a very nice black box.
