What have you been doing during lockdown?

Things have been pretty quiet lately but wanted to keep you up to date with what I’ve been doing during Lockdown. I have been spending time in my garden, combing the beach, going for walks in the forest and playing in parks with my wee girl. As Lockdown, allowed us to slow down, I’ve been thinking about things that we can all do to help the environment. So I’ve been joining in, in the beach cleans and helping out at the community fridge in Tayport, becoming more aware of the food wasted in our homes and from the supermarkets.

I’ve also been thinking about the materials I use in my work and am going to stop making pieces in perspex and am thinking about ways to incorporate recycled plastics into my 3D printed work. I also use eco and recycled silver and gold, and can revamp your old jewellery turning them into something new.

But I wanted to let you know that I’m still here for all your jewellery needs. I’m open for appointments again, so if there’s a birthday coming up or you’re needing a thank you gift for a fantastic Teacher, just get in touch or check out my website for the perfect gift.

Or do you just want to treat yourself to a new piece of jewellery for your summer holidays? 
Head to the jewellery shop to Start Shopping
Real life exhibitions are back and I’m excited to announce that my jewels will be on show at both of these exhibitions this Summer.


Summer Exhibition, Pittenweem

Pittenweem Arts Festival is cancelled again this year, but they are putting on a summer exhibition and my work has been selected. Head to Art@47 to purchase a mixed selection of my jewels, including colourful Perspex pieces, the component collection and a few statement pieces. My work will be on sale during the 6th-16th and the 20th-30th August. I won’t be making Perspex pieces any more so it will be your last chance to purchase items from this collection.



100 Jewels by 100 Women

Excited to announce that I have been selected to exhibit in this exhibition. From the 2nd to the 27th June Double Door Studios in Dundee are holding their first proper exhibition – 100 Jewels by 100 Women – a celebration of the achievements of female craftswomen who have lived, studied or worked in Dundee. They have chosen one of my biggest statement pieces, so you’ll need to head to the show to see which piece was selected.

Double Door Studios will be open in real life but you must book before coming. All the pieces are available to view online and in print thanks to funding from @creativescots!

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.
