Full of Life

Some people have an extraordinary ability to embrace life with hope and enthusiasm. Mary Steratore's handcrafted earrings can be a spirited token of affection for one of those special people--or wear them yourself as a reminder of the goodness in your life.

The dangling, sterling silver bar is actually a Maori symbol called a roimata. The word means "teardrop", but it's used to represent comfort, healing and strength. It’s paired with pendants of square-cut garnet, a stone traditionally believed to promote vitality, courage, passion and love. Comes with a card printed with the charms' meanings.

Artist Mary Steratore gathers her materials from around the globe: waxes and molds are made in Italy, silver charms are cast in Thailand, and the semi-precious stone pieces made in India. She assembles the necklace in the USA on a silver earring hooks, also made in the USA.

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.

Bought these for myself and friends. Very good quality and nice unique earrings. Were longer than anticipated, took them to a jeweler to have them shortened. The boxes they came in were very nice, with nice description of the meaning. The additional gift boxes were a waste of $; too big and filled with coarse packing.
