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

Headpiece - Yes or No

Mary Clary Bridal Designs



No one will dispute the fact that a woman's wedding day is one of the most special days in her life. For most women, being the focal point of a social event of this magnitude, only occurs on her wedding day. Since you are reading this blog, you obviously are either a bride to be or somehow involved in the wedding planning process. You know the enormous amount of effort involved in having everything from head to toe as perfect as possible. Certainly, the gown is the most obvious important element of the "look". From the starting point of the gown, there is a definite need for a bride to accessorize. For some brides, their lifelong dream was to be a princess on their wedding day. It is without question that these women will wear a tiara. For other brides, the idea of even a tiny bit of sparkle in the hair seems too girly girl. At Mary Clary Designs, we believe that certainly everyone has a different view of themselves as a bride, and we try to work with the bride to accommodate each individual. Of course, we adore adorning the head in some way.

Can you do a piece that has the feeling of the recent royal wedding?

Hello. I could make a design with the "feel" of the tiara in the recent royal wedding. I will be talking about that tiara in a future blog. It is a beautiful piece in the true spirit of royalty "fit for a princess" or bride. I would love to discuss any headpiece designs that might interest you.
