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 over 17 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.
