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

Beach Wedding Headpieces

Mary Clary Bridal Designs

The destination wedding, in particular, the beach wedding, has become a popular venue. Many brides are wearing headpieces to reflect the setting of their wedding. In so doing, they often end up looking like they put the whole beach on their head.

It is not necessary to overly dramatize the fact that your are being married at the beach. It will be apparent. As a bride, you will want to exhibit your exquisite taste and beauty. You will probably not be wearing beach attire, so why wear a beach headpiece? You will want to choose your headpiece with the same thought that you would put into purchasing an important piece of jewelry for the most important event of your life. You don't want to look as though you are wearing a costume in any way.

However, if your fantasy is to be a "mermaid princess" on your wedding, you can still accomplish this by subtly including tiny seashells, freshwater coin pearls, and perhaps a touch of aquamarines into the design of your headpiece. At Mary Clary Designs we will work with you to create the "Beach Wedding" headpiece of your dreams whether that includes elements of the beach or not.

With destination weddings being so popular can a headpiece tastefully lend an exotic flavor?

The headpiece is limitless in the flavor it can have. If exotic is what you desire, it can have elements of the ocean involved in it's creation, from shells to freshwater pearls, to coral. I love designing the unique.
