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

"I am not completely happy with the headpiece my aunt gave me to wear"

     If you were given a headpiece that is truly beautiful and you love it, but it is missing some stones, and just needs a tweek here and there, you can have a headpiece designer fix it for you.  If the designer is experienced and good, she or he can replace stones, and straighten out any imperfection. 
     If you were given a headpiece or found a vintage piece that you love in certain ways, but you would prefer the components redesigned, a competent headpiece designer can also accomplish that for you.  The key word here is "competent".  You want someone who really knows what they are doing to rework your headpiece. 
     If you have just one component from a previously used headpiece that you love and would like to incorporate just the component into your headpiece, it can definitely be accomplished by using a headpiece designer who specializes in custom work.
    I love to design new headpieces and to work on older ones to bring them up to perfection.  Some of the most interesting unique and beautiful pieces are comprised of the foundation being the "given" headpiece with embellishments from many other sources.
