Co-Stars

You might interpret Mary Steratore’s piece as a devotion to each one-of-a-kind friendship like a star in the sky. But it also alludes to the quiet consistency of friends, like stars twinkling night after night. Mary crafts the unique pendant in her Pittsburgh studio, etching a sweet phrase into its sterling silver surface, and completing it with rock crystal and gold vermeil charms. Give one to the friend you had in mind while reading this. Handmade in Pennsylvania.

It can be daunting trading one career for another, especially when there are PhDs involved. But for Mary Steratore, such a change 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 throughout Italy and the US, she developed a new line of jewelry inspired by her sculpture.
