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

          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!

              I wear this necklace daily, it was a gift from my husband. It was to remind us of how much our lives have grown. It is light in weight and delicate looking when on. It Is hard to put on by oneself,because the clasp opening is small.
