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, it led to true artistic expression. Leaving archaeology to create her own fine art, Mary 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.
