September Madness! Craft Fairs, Showcase, Crowdfunding Talk And Wedding Fair - Genna Delaney Jewellery Artist

September Madness! Craft Fairs, Showcase, Crowdfunding Talk And Wedding Fair

I don’t know where the time has went since coming back from the festival. It was a fantastic show this year and have lots of orders to get on with as well as restock my galleries before the Christmas rush. As usual, when I took time off after the fair I got ill so had to rest. But I’m starting to feel a little better so it’s time to get back on track.

September has been a busy month of exhibiting and networking, as well as making new connections and pushing my work in new directions.

On the weekend of the 19th and 20th September I took part in Tea Green Events ‘Doors Open’ at the Lighthouse in Glasgow. It was a lovely show with lots of lovely, high quality designer makers. I’m going to be focusing on exhibiting at higher end events from now on.

This week I’ve really pushed myself as I took part in the Business Showcase at the Dundee and Angus Chamber of Commerce and did a talk on Crowdfunding. It was a massive confidence boost for me as I am in no way a public speaker so was very nervous, especially when I saw how big the room that I had to present to was! But hay hoo! You have to push yourself to do things that challenge and scare you. I’ve realised that I have to stop giving into my fears and JUST DO IT! Fears stop you getting things done. I’m so pleased I’ve actually managed to do a talk to lots of people, on a stage. I got some really good feedback including ‘very insightful presentation’, interesting and refreshing talk on crowdfunding, it’s not all big business’, ‘Genna is so passionate about her business’.

So chuffed, so the next step could be Pecha Kucha for me! EEK!

The week isn’t over yet I’m currently preparing for a Wedding Show at West Park Conference Centre on Sunday 27th September from 12-4pm. If you are getting married and need to sort out things for your wedding then head along on Sunday to the Wedding Fair. I do bridal jewellery, wedding and engagement rings, cufflinks, kilt pins, tiaras and other bespoke pieces for your special day. Get in touch with me to see what’s possible!


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.
