I am so glad I found Mari to create my wedding jewelry! She was able to design a beautiful necklace, bracelet, and earrings that I had been envisioning to go with my wedding gown. She was so patient and easy to work with and everything turned out perfect! Thanks to her I felt my most beautiful and complete on my wedding day.

Mari with Bel Canto Designs provided an amazing experience for me! As a jewelry lover I had high expectations for my wedding jewelry and was not disappointed! Mari was patient with me and let me try on many pieces till I found just the right fit. I wanted a hair comb but didn't see one that was quite what I wanted, so Mari told me she would contact me when she found the perfect one. She later showed me a stunning comb she had set aside for me that was exactly what I wanted, even though I was not very good at explaining what I was looking for. I ended up with earrings, a bracelet, and the hair piece and had so many complements on my jewelry. She even helped me pick out earrings and a hair piece that I gave to my mother for the wedding! If you are looking for unique jewelry and a personal experience, you cannot go wrong with Bel Canto Designs!

Mari helped create an incredible 'look' for my big day! I bought a necklace, bracelet, and earrings that were all created with my vision in mind. I thought she did an outstanding job with all of the pieces. I received so many compliments on the jewelry. I can't wait to pass these pieces down to my little girl one day!

The Bel Canto jewelry I purchased for my wedding was not only absolutely stunning, they were quality pieces made to last as heirlooms someday. I got many compliments on my wedding jewelry and would highly recommend and have recommended this vendor to many people. Bel Canto Designs is a joy to work with, and Mari Palmer takes time to ensure that your pieces fit with the look of your dress and veil as well the overall wedding theme. Excellent vendor!

As I've said in other reviews, my husband and I were engaged for a couple years prior to getting married. Early on in the engagement, I met Mari from Bel Canto Designs at a bridal boutique. From the moment I saw Mari's jewelry, I knew I HAD to have a piece for my big day.

During my engagement, I saw Bel Canto Designs at several bridal shows, and each time I saw beautiful pieces that I hadn't seen before. I was on a budget, though, and I had to figure out which piece fit me and my budget.

When it came time to purchase my special jewelry, I contacted Mari. She was accommodating to my scheduling needs, and I appreciated that. Though I didn't have my dress in hand, I did have photos of it. I also had become quite familiar with the pieces on the web site and had told Mari which ones I liked. And, I knew that I wanted a headband to replace my veil during the reception. I needed some pizazz once the veil was removed.

So, when I met with Mari, she had already selected a handful of brooches, and they were all my style. I was drawn to one in particular, and she grabbed a headband to give me an idea of what it would look like. I thought it would be perfect.

And, it was. My husband had to pick it up for me a couple weeks later, because I was out of town. He called me to tell me how great it looked. At the wedding, and afterward, several people commented on how perfect it looked. Most importantly, though, it suit my personality and style and gave me the extra special touch I wanted at my reception.

If you want a beautiful, high-quality piece (or pieces) of jewelry for your big day that will be customized to meet your needs, go with Bel Canto Designs. I felt elegant that day with the help of my custom headband, and I'm sure Mari will help you feel elegant too.

I ordered a vintage rhinestone and pearl necklace from Bel Canto Bridal Designs earlier this month for my wedding in October. I was looking for a high quality vintage piece at a reasonable price, and did I ever find it! The necklace is even more beautiful in person than it was in pictures, and Mari was very easy to work with; she shipped the necklace very promptly, and was nothing but professional throughout the process. I would not hesitate to work with her again in the future if the need should arise.

A few months ago, I found a very unique vintage haircomb on BelCanto Designs that I loved but was not quite ready to purchase. Mari kindly and thoughtfully answered all of my many questions over the next several weeks. Per my request, she even posted additional photos of the comb side-by-side with similar items, and positioned it in her daughter's hair so that I could get a better feel for how it would look in person. After many "check-ins" on my special comb, I finally ordered it! The item was shipped immediately and arrived at my door within a couple of days. I cannot say enough about Mari's patience and attentiveness through my ordering process. Equally wonderful is the quality of her work - I had originally planned on wearing the comb for my best friend's rehearsal dinner, but once it arrived I thought it was so special and beautiful that I decided to save it for my own wedding! I highly recommend BelCanto Designs.

Mari was a pleasure to work with! She knew exactly what I was looking for and worked with me to customize bracelets for my bridesmaids. I was so pleased with the results. They mirrored the vintage, elegant look that I was going for for my upcoming August wedding. I'd strongly recommend her and her work.

I purchased two stunning rhinestone hair pins and just ordered some rhinestone and pearl earrings. The pieces are tasteful and gorgeously restored. This is the place for rhinestones! Mari sends your purchases out very quickly and was very responsive to all my questions. She even tracked down the twin hairpin which was out at a boutique when I ordered the first one on Etsy. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

I ordered my one-of-a-kind bracelet from Bel Canto after seeing it featured on a blog. The bracelet is beautiful and arrived very quickly. The jewelry is priced in the middle range due to the fact all are made from antique pieces. They were very easy to work with and even put the piece on hold for me while I ordered it.

I purchased my rhinestone brooch and pearl bracelet from BelCanto Designs (found on etsy.com) Love it! It was my wedding gift from my fiance. The quality is remarkable and its a piece that I hope to pass on to my own children. It has a timeless feel while still being a very relavent peice as well. I am particularly fond of Mari's prices. At $68 this bracelet rivals those listed at $95-$120 from other etsy sellers. Not to mention the shipping was fast! I would highly recommend purhcasing jewelry from BelCanto Designs.

I loved the earrings I got from Bel Canto. I was looking for something vintage, and the earrings have a beautiful filigree design with antique drop beads. Mari, the seller, was quick to respond to my questions, and once I placed the order, the shipping was super fast. The purchase was a bit of a splurge, but the earrings are absolutely perfect and I can't wait to wear them on my wedding day.

I had such a great time when I first went to try on jewelry, they were patient and let me try on so many different options to help me make my decision. The pieces I ended up with were so beautiful. I felt like a princess on my big day, and still get compliments on the earrings when I wear them for dressy occasions.

Mari and her designs are incredible! She created both the earrings and hair comb I dreamed of for my wedding day and also custom designed a set of earrings and a necklace for my bridesmaids. Her works is quality, great value, and most of all- gorgeous! She is also so receptive and responsive on helping you create a one-of-a-kind jewelry piece that brides and bridesmaids alike will cherish. I have had so many people ask where I got my jewelry and am so proud to direct them to Bel Canto Designs.
