How Lovely

Take a page from Mary Steratore's evocative necklace that provides subtle encouragement to seek love, express our admiration, and to accept the affections of others with a full heart. With its deep crimson hue, garnet is believed to promote professional and personal passion and to enhance the interactions we have with our coworkers, friends, and partners. The hand-stamped sterling silver and 22kt gold-plated charms are sculpted in Italy, cast in Thailand, and accented with garnet sourced from India.

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
