About Me

I studied art, both from a perspective of practical design and from the perspective of art as an influence to the human spirit. My studies in art were at the Academy of Art in San Francisco and at George Washington University in Washington, DC. My passion for art and things of beauty brought me into the world of jewelry design. The wedding is a perfect venue for the display of beauty, and the bride has become the perfect "canvas" for my talents. Each of my handcrafted pieces has been described as a "work of art". Mary Clary Designs has been featured in "Bride's" magazine, "Modern Bride", "Greenwich Magazine", and "Fairfield County" magazine on numerous occasions. You can still have gorgeous, couture quality headpieces and jewelry for a fraction of what they would cost in a bridal salon or even on the web. visit: http://www.maryclarydesign.etsy.com

Finding the Right Headpiece for Fine Hair

Mary Clary Bridal Designs




















If your hair is very thin and/or fine, and a comb or hairpin would just slide out, there are ways to get around this. Instead of a hairpin or comb, a beautiful vintage or modern sparkly design on a bobby pin or tiny clip will work better for you. The secret is to make the design very light and airy. If you have your heart set on a comb, be sure that the comb has very fine teeth that can be anchored with additional bobby pins. If you have always wanted to wear a tiara on your wedding day, I recommend a tight fitting headband instead.  It can have the same feeling as a tiara, but will hold better if your hair is very fine. I love to work with you to create exactly what you need and want. Check out my designs at www.maryclarydesign.etsy.com. All of our designs can be altered to work in any type of hair.

Can pieces be made similar to the fascinator that is popular in England?

Absolutely all of my headpieces can be used with a veil. Some of them are made precisely to go in front of the veil.

Yes. I make fascinators. I think that is a beautiful look especially with vintage.
