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 You Wear a Headpiece with Short Hair?

Short hair is usually a fashion statement.  It is a personal style that shows individuality and is often stunning, bringing attention to a beautiful face.  If your hair is so short that a comb or clip would not adhere, there are headbands and ribbon styles that would be charming.  It is my feeling that very short hair needs a headpiece to balance the bridal look.   Just the most subtle sparkle is sufficient, but necessary to achieve head to toe harmony. 
     Some brides with short hair opt for big statement earrings such as chandelier earrings to accomplish the head to toe bridal look.  I believe that this is a mistake.  Long earrings with short hair is definitely out of proportion.  The top of the head becomes even more pronounced as "empty."  A small headpiece with sparkly, but not long earrings, would create the balanced, beautiful bridal look.
