Designer Q&A: Jenny Deans

With Valentine's Day fast approaching we thought this would be the perfect time to introduce our new jewellery designers, to give you some gift ideas and inspiration.

First up is Jenny Deans. A local lady who makes beautiful, wearable silver jewellery in her studio in sunny Leith.

Godiva Boutique is now proudly stocking her 'Canty' range which starts at a very affordable £25. Available in store and online.

Jenny Deans

Hello, I am...  Jenny Deans

I design... Beautiful Jewellery

When I am creating my typical day involves... lots of hammering, twisting
bits of wire, and big mugs of tea

When I am not designing and creating I am.....
turning over a new leaf and
trying to get fit at the gym, or snuggled up on the sofa with the cat.

I get inspiration from..... nature, architecture and sculpture. My Canty
range is inspired by trips to the seaside near North Berwick - looking in
rockpools and watching the waves rolling in.

Being an independent designer is important to me because......
independent allows me to create anything I can imagine, without a boss
telling me what to make or do - or what time I need to be in the studio.

Jenny in her studio

I knew I wanted to be a designer when I was..... at school and for my higher
design project I was taught how to make Jewellery by one of my Gran's

My greatest achievement so far is ........... being selected on several
occasions for the prestigious Goldsmiths' Fair Exhibition in London. I have
also won the Visual Arts Scotland Prize for Applied Arts.

I cannot live without...... Large mugs of tea

My favourite thing I have ever bought or found is.... I found my wonderful
Husband who buys me all my favourite Jewellery (after a little direction)

Awww, thanks Jenny!
