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

Flowers in Her Hair?

Mary Clary Bridal Designs

Some brides choose real flowers for their headpiece.  This can be configured as a headband or halo or clip. 
The floral headpiece has the inherent problem of wilting before the wedding is over.  It also has the implication of making the bride look like either a flower girl or flower child. 
It is my feeling that there is already an abundance of flowers in the wedding venue; a floral headpiece is one flower too many.
Floral motifs created out of pearls and/or crystals, are more elegant and will draw attention to the bride's hair and face.  Choose real pearls, real crystals, real silver...not real flowers.
