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.

This gift was a "unique" find with a meaningful message to it. I gave it to a great-niece that was starting the next chapter in her life. Being it was a "path" meaning I thought it was appropriate and she was truly touched. That is what is so great about "uncommon goods" the items that they sell are truly "uncommon" is a very good way! I would recommend this item to others.It is a great find!

I was a bit disappointed at the size of this! In looking on line, it appeared that the stones were at least "tear-drop" size, but they are actually so small you have to pick it up and look at it closely. For $55 I think this is a bit much and could have found something just as nice for less. But, it is too late now. I know my friend will enjoy this anyway, but it is SO small! Not really a value
