The Story Of Genna Design Jewellery
Hi there, I’m Genna and I’m a Scottish jewellery designer based in Wasps Studios, Dundee. Ever since I was a little girl I’ve been making things with my hands. Growing up in the lovely coastal town of Largs, I have always been completely in awe of the sea. I spent my childhood combing the sand for unusual shells and rocks, many of which I still have today.
My other great passion in life is architecture and when I was growing up, I planned to study it at university. But that all changed when I took a night class in jewellery making. I immediately loved the feeling of working with metal and precious stones and creating beautiful miniature sculptures with my hands. All of a sudden I could channel my love of architecture and Scottish landscape into making a single piece of jewellery that could be worn and adored. It is such a satisfying process and I love it just as much today.
I love to work with precious materials but also incorporates non-precious materials such as semi-precious stones, perspex and resin, adding colour to catch the eye. I have a vast range of jewellery to suit everyone’s needs. For example I enjoy taking on commissions to add that personal touch and individuality for my clients but also has various commercial ranges. With a love for colour I like to introduce unusual and rare stones which the wearer can play with and move along the labyrinths of my pieces.
