The Story Of Genna Delaney Jewellery

How would you feel if you could commission a special piece of jewellery that was hand sculpted just for you or your loved one? You are unique so your jewellery should be too! I want to help you feel beautiful, confident and empowered in your own individual style.

Hi, I’m Genna Delaney, founder of the award winning, Scottish Jewellery Brand, Genna Delaney Jewellery. After graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, I was based at WASPS Artists Studios, Dundee from 2006 till 2020. Dundee is the UNESCO city of Design, and was voted top 10 places to visit due to the newly opened V&A Design Museum. I am now based in my garden studio in Tayport, Fife just across the River Tay Bridge. I am open by appointment basis only. So just get in touch to book before coming for a visit.

By blending art and science, I create beautifully bespoke, bold architectural, wearable art jewellery. I hand select ethically sourced gemstones and use eco silver and gold to create sustainable pieces.

I see my jewellery as statement works of art, designed to the needs, wants and bodies of the men and women who wear them. With 15 years of experience, I have a proven customer base which continues to grow. Public figures such as Jenny Campbell, dragons den and Judy Murray, tennis coach, as well as local MSPs and successful business women already have pieces of my jewellery.

In October 2018 I re-branded from Genna Design to Genna Delaney Jewellery Artist, now focusing on making bespoke pieces which are more than just jewellery, I produce pieces of wearable art, which should be worn and adored. I am influenced by architecture, rock formations and the natural world. Always in awe of the Scottish landscape with it’s rugged coastline, I produce luxury pieces that are bold and contemporary with a rustic charm.

I want to help you express your own individuality, to be the real you, and design truly unique pieces just for YOU.

Where To Find Me

I specialise in designing and making bespoke jewellery commissions for special occasions, alternative engagement and wedding rings and exhibit my work throughout the UK.

Testimonials

Can't thank you enough it was exactly as we asked for and a lot more x better start saving for the Eternity ring you're going to be making next for June .... a very happy couple xx

Sean

My family bought me a voucher for a 1:1 workshop to make a silver ring for my Birthday. Genna's workshops are informative in the process of jewellery making and good fun. Genna has a lovely teaching style.

Best of all you go home with a beautiful ring you made.

I would definitely do another workshop and if I could give Genna 10 stars I would. Thank you.

Samantha

Picked up my Wedding Ring today and words can't describe how happy I am. It looks amazing. Few wee (happy) tears on the way home. Thank you so much. p.s. thank you from my "Mum" too xxx

June

Genna design recently carried out a repair on my wife's engagement ring. I could not fault Genna's workmanship and the cost of the repair was very competitive. I would not hesitate to return in the future.

Michael

I had a fantastic time on Saturday, thanks Genna for being patient. Love my ring. Robert asked what I was making next so I might be back. Thanks once again for a great day x

Liz

Had a lovely day with Genna making our wedding rings! What a great touch to add to our special day! Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to make their wedding rings, more than just a ring!

Stephanie 2018

Genna created my engagement and wedding ring and they are absolutely beyond perfect! She really took her time at the initial consultation and went over all of the tiniest details - when we got the pictures of the finished rings I was totally blown away - they were exactly what I had pictured in my head, if not better!!

Jessica

Genna, it was lovely to meet you last evening and I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the beautiful necklace. It is truly gorgeous. What a talent you have. I've not taken it off since last Thursday! I was even wearing it for Crufts all weekend!

Keep following your dream!

Jenny Campbell 2018

Really enjoyable and educational day, we both had loads of fun. Would recommend to anyone looking to make there own personalised ring

Gordon & Gill

As Alison and Ron’s neighbours we have witnessed first hand this special and devoted love and the beautiful commission pieces you made reflect beautifully their enduring love . Alison wears them with humble pride.

Yvonne

Today my mother enjoyed her Christmas treat from us – a four hour ring making class with jeweller Genna Delaney. She totally loved it and has made a wonderful ring. She reckons Genna is a natural teacher. As a former head teacher she’s good at spotting such talents. If you want to learn jewellery making then Genna is the person to see!

Prof Mike Press

Whoah this blog is fantastic. I love reading your posts. Keep up the good work! You know, a lot of people are searching around for this information, you can aid them greatly.

Natalie

I'm over the moon with my ring! Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful piece which means so much to me. I absolutely love it.

Irene 2018

Thanks so much for the beautiful ring I bought yesterday!! Will be in touch about a commission a piece soon!!

Genna has lots of lovely jewellery to buy. The best things are bespoke though. She made me a few unique items using much loved heirlooms and updating them.
