Passion Is A Motivator

Passion of a Jewellery Designer

Looking back, did you ever wonder that you would be where you are today? Is there anything you regret or would do differently?

This blog is an outspoken reflection on where I am in 2015 and expectations for the future, during an interview by my intern Natalie McNair.

For sure there has been some tough times when starting my own jewellery business but jewellery is my passion and I remind myself of this when things get tough. It’s important to take a step back and remind ourselves why we do what we do and take a time-out every once in awhile.  This is definitely something I learnt in the last year; working 24/7 and my social/personal life lacking. With talking with my business advisors I made a week to week plan of things that need to be achieved in my business and taking time out as well. It has been very helpful and has focused on specific aspects of my business.

This year has gotten off to a good start in terms of commission work which I love doing. My focus is to get the website up and running in terms of getting my jewellery images up so people can shop a wider range of my jewellery online. As well as this I am constantly researching new crafts fairs to attend to, to create a wider audience and get potentially new clients to add to my portfolio. With the list of outlets I already sell my jewellery to I am forever looking into potentially new clients. The more exposure, the more known my brand will be aware and noticed by people.

There are so many business support for independent business women/men out there that anyone thinking about starting their own business; you will never feel alone or lost if you look at who is out there to support you in any aspect of your new venture.

It’s crazy to think that Genna Design has been around since 2006 and is something that I have built from scratch on my own and I can’t wait to see what the future will bring for myself and my business in the near future.

Remember Genna Design jewellery and why not check out my online shop at as new products will be getting added over the next few weeks.


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.
