Do You Have Your Own Shop? Where Can I Buy Your Work? Can I Just Pop In To See You?

One of the most commonly asked questions I get from potential clients when I’m exhibiting is “Do you have your own shop?”

The answer is No.

Although I don’t have a retail shop you are definitely welcome to visit the studio /workshop but you do have to arrange an appointment to come see me.

I would love to have my own retail shop with gallery workshop but due to the time involved in running one, as well as the overhead costs involved in having your own premises,  I have decided to continue running my creative practice from my studio/workshop at WASPS Studios, Dundee. I have managed to maintain my creative business and will be reaching my 10 year anniversary next month and believe if I did have my own retail shop that I wouldn’t be trading anymore. Having a studio at WASPS has allowed me to keep my running costs low and has let me continue to run my creative practice full time.

Studio Cabinets And Benches

Studio Cabinets And Benches

Last year I moved into a larger studio at Meadow Mill and have have now added two more benches which I rent out to other jewellers for hot desking and can also host jewellery classes of up to 4 people working at once.

I love my work space! I also have 4 jewellery cabinets where I can display my jewellery. I don’t always have all my jewellery on display but if you have a look at my website and let me know what pieces you would like to see, I can put these on display for you.

“Where can I buy your work?”

You can purchase my jewellery online from the comfort of your own home. Head to the online jewellery shop here

You can arrange an appointment to view /purchase pieces at my studio and to discuss commissions, you can contact me here

You can visit me at any of the exhibitions that I take part in or visit any of the outlets that stock my jewellery. You can see who stocks my work here

“Can I just pop in to see you?”

Unfortunately not. I am a one man band. I work on my own and sometimes employ people on a part time freelance basis. Although I work full time, I’m not always in the studio as I’m out posting orders, away visiting suppliers, exhibiting, going to networking events, doing admit, etc. This is why it is necessary to book an appointment to make sure I’m definitely there, so you don’t waste your time coming to see me. There is also security in the building so it is not easy to get in to WASPS. When you arrange an appointment at a suitable time and date that fits us both, I always come down to great my clients on the ground floor and will take you upstairs to my studio.

If you would like to come for a visit to purchase my jewellery or discuss commissions just get in touch

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

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

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.

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.
