Abundant Charm

Lao Tzu wrote, "When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you." Mary Steratore's necklace is a beautiful reminder that the wearer is never alone, but is at one with a universe of abundance. Its sterling silver charm takes the shape of yin and yang, the interconnected symbol of balance and harmony. The 22k gold vermeil pendant forms a Zen circle, representing enlightenment and the wholeness of the universe.

Artist Mary Steratore gathers her materials from around the globe: waxes and molds are made in Italy, the charms are cast in Thailand, and the chain is made in the USA. She assembles the final necklace 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.

    Completely charming necklace, good quality, I wear it every day and only take it off to shower and swim to protect the gold. I've been wearing it for several weeks now and no complaints! I love how meaningful and beautiful it is at the same time.

    Comments about UncommonGoods The Gratitude of Lacking Nothing Necklace:

    I love the look of this necklace and it was quite meaningful to me since it was given to me as a gift. A short time after receiving it,the chain broke. Custoner service was great and sent me another one but that chain broke as well. Keep in mind that I was very careful with the necklace only wearing it during normal activities and taking it off at night.

      This gift was so touching, inspirational, and a great reminder of the little, significant things in life. As the receiver of this piece, I was touched, appreciative, and don't go a day without it. Such a humble reminder of what's important.
