Seeds of Change

Mary Steratore's composition is a reminder that nature is full of miraculous change that can inspire personal growth. This necklace invokes the natural process that transforms a tiny seed into a mighty tree. The artist says "may your inner beauty blossom like shimmering leaves," and her trio of green, seed-like peridot with gold and silver leaves suggests a Springtime narrative of regeneration for personal revitalization. Handmade in the USA.

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

    This necklace reminded me of my daughter because it includes her birthstone and I like the words that accompany it. She was very happy with the gift, says it's very pretty and she loves it.

      Comments about TINY SEEDS NECKLACE:

      It's a beautfiul necklace and exactly as pictured. I am concerned about the longevity of the necklace because it seems so delicate, but I can't know until it does break.

      I was disappointed that the leaf patterns are not on both sides of the leaf. I also thought the smaller gold leaf's center line was not as visible as in the photo.

      Overall I am glad I purchased it (intended as my everyday necklace). I think it is a beautiful symbol of strength and large change/growth coming from a small place. It's attractive and hopefully will last well despite its delicate appearance.

            The chain was way too delicate--and it had a 'splice' in it to make it loo cheap.AND I am upset that I can't even get the chain OFF, to try to replace it with a heavier chain...This is my 2nd purchase from uncommon goods, and the 1st necklace was PERFECT!

              I don't usually buy myself jewelry, but when I saw this, I just had to have it. The peridot is my only grandchild's birthstone. And the saying, "From small seeds grow mighty trees", perfectly describes my granddaughter and my love for the outdoors. I love hiking in the woods among the tall trees. This necklace was made for me!
