Ch ch ch changing! 2019 : a year of change and new beginnings

20 week scan pic

I can’t believe how quickly this year is passing already. Every January I am normally super stressed out as I don’t know what to focus on for the rest of the year. There’s always pressure of creating new goals, pushing forward and starting something new in my business.

But 2019 already has a completely different feel, without the pressure of working like a bitch any more. Having a better work life balance is key to being happier. I’ve been running my jewellery business since October 2006 and it has always been my main focus and passion in life. However over the past year my mindset has changed, as I am reaching 38, now is time to take a little break to have a family.

In less than 5 weeks time I will be having my first baby. Yes it’s an exciting time and it’s going to be a lot of change. My flat has been on the market since August, we got an interested buyer in January and have sold our flat. Not the best time to find a new family home but hay, that’s just the way life works!

So this year has been taken up with me researching baby things, attending antenatal groups, getting my flat sorted for babe coming and looking for a new home! I’m also getting through my commissions and organising stock before I go off on maternity leave at the end of February. I am continuing to make jewellery until the end of February.

If you are interested in commissioning me, I am taking a waiting list of clients so that I can get back to making when I return to work. I’m not going to be as active on social media for a while and need to take time off to nurture and care for my baby.

So it is good bye for now. Thank you for supporting my business over the years and hope you will continue to support me when I return.

Best wishes

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


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.


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


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.


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


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!

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!!


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!

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.


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!

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.


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.

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.
