Edinburgh Festival Me In Stand

It’s the perfect time to update you all about the exciting changes at Genna Design!

You may or may not know that I recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to enable me to raise the necessary funds so that I can create a BRAND NEW jewellery collection. The campaign was to raise £1500 and ran for 4 weeks from June – July, I’m so excited that it was hugely successful and made it possible for me to purchase the Anarkik 3D Cloud 9 software and Haptic Mouse that goes with it. This new technology means that I can create a new 3D printed jewellery collection which is a new and exciting concept. I want to say Thank You to everyone that pledged and helped me reach my goal!

WASPS Studio Work Space

WASPS Studio Work Space

As well as this, I have moved to a new studio! I’m still based at WASPS in Dundee but now located on level 2 of the building, it’s a much bigger space and I am currently adapting it so that I can make it my own. I have already painted the floor red, had new work benches constructed and started to give it that homely feel (which is very important of course!). I have a few more finishing touches so that I can have it just the way I want it, but I can’t wait for everyone to see it!

So lastly, most of you will already know the importance of this time of year for Genna Design… We are already into the first week of the Edinburgh Festival! This is my biggest show of the year and I have been preparing for it over the past 2 months, making lots of new pieces to entice you. If you haven’t visited Edinburgh during the festival then I would highly recommend it, the atmosphere is simply buzzing! There are more stalls than you can look at, lots of interesting foods to try and a choice of thousands of shows to go and see. I’ll be situated in the marquee of 3D2D West End Fair, which is right next to St John’s church. (corner of Lothian Road and Princes Street, I’m in the marquee at the top).

It’s a 3 week event for me and runs from Saturday 8th- Sunday 30th August, open from 11am -6pm each day. So I’d love to see some friendly faces and also some new ones. If you know anyone that is looking to buy jewellery then you know where to send them, my pieces are perfect for gifts or if you’d just like to treat yourself. I’ll have my classic collections with me but also some new exciting pieces that I’m certain will appeal to many!

Thanks for reading and I hope to see you at the festival next month!

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

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!

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.
