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

Should the Headpiece Match the Bride's Jewelry?

Mary Clary Bridal Designs
 I like to coordinate the headpiece and jewelry by including certain similar aspects of the designs of each, so that they don't match, but that they blend harmoniously. If it is your style and preference to match everything, then, of course, you should and can, if you utilize a headpiece company that customizes the headpiece and jewelry.  Be certain that the pieces will be handmade.  A ready made matching jewelry and headpiece set is a sure sign of "cheesey."  With the right designer, the matching headpiece and jewelry can be created tastefully and beautifully.
     If your look is eclectic, it is pretty hard to accomplish this look for your wedding.  I love being eclectic in everyday fashion, however, I would not recommend it for a bride.  You really want to look completely pulled together on your wedding, not a mish mosh of looks and designs.
