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

Your Headpiece: "Something Borrowed?"


The only time that it is ok to wear someone else's headpiece is if you truly love the headpiece that is being offered to you, and you would have chosen it for yourself in the first place. You most likely would not even think of using a borrowed gown even if the fit were perfect. For some uncanny reason, the bride often considers the headpiece as an afterthought or unimportant trinket. It should be considered one of the most important elements of your ensemble. After all, it is near your face and hair. It's purpose is to bring forth the bridal glow in your hair and face. Everyone's attention will be drawn to you from head to toe. However, it is in your face that radiates your happiness on your wedding day. Your headpiece should be a very personal decision and it should be chosen with the utmost of care. Therefore, if it is your "borrowed," it might not be the perfect size, style, or fit for your hair and face.

If you use some beads from your mother's wedding dress in your headpiece can you consider it some thing old?

Definitely. Incorporating beads from your mother's wedding dress is a perfect way to have "something old" without compromising your own sense of style. Thank you for your question. Please visit http://www.maryclarydesign.etsy.com
