One Off Statement Sculptural Ring Commission - Genna Delaney Jewellery Artist

I am a jeweller who loves to make really unusual pieces which are bespoke for each individual client. However sometimes you don’t always get the opportunity to make those really fun, exciting and challenging pieces as you get bogged down with running your business.

Making commercial “bread and butter” pieces for shops and galleries is good to make a living but I also love to make one off statement pieces like my original degree show pieces such as

this large statement oxidised silver neckpiece with large kinetic Rutile Quartz stone. The stone can slide up and down the piece. And these 3 sculptural rings.

Making these sculptural rings is a really challenging process. I really enjoy selecting unusual stones which have character, then design around the stone itself to create something totally unique and set the stone in an unusual way.

So I was over the moon when a client commissioned me to make her a one off ring with one of my unusual stones. She chose a Dendritic Quartz which has moss/fern like inclusions (which are actually called dendrils hence the name dendritic quartz) within the crystal as it forms. Each stone is like an unusual picture on it’s own and is totally unique. My client had seen a previous ring I had made with this stone on an old business card and wanted one made for herself.

Here are images of work in progress of the ring with the individual pieces of silver and a finished sculptural ring to show you how one looks.

The second image is of the layered up pieces to create the sculptural piece. The next stage is to solder all the sections together then make the claws, clean up and polish, send off for hallmarking, then finally set the stone.

Here are images of the finished piece.

If you would like to commission a sculptural ring with an unusual stone get in touch. I have lots of really nice stones including, green amethyst, rutile/ tourmalinated/ dendritic/ smoky quartz. Contact me to see what can be made.

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!

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.
