Hi, my name is Beth and I am, like all of us, many things!
As Aneksi Designs I make silver jewellery, and I really enjoy making one off pieces, often for friends with specific requirements, such as 'something with turquoise in it'!
I studied Archaeology at university, with an interest in Egyptology - Aneksi was an Egyptian girl’s name that means 'She belongs to me'. I liked the sound of the name!
I love the process of designing and making jewellery - the drawing of a design or laying out of beads; the sawing and hammering; the playing with fire; the twisting of wire; even the filing (sometimes!); and then the polishing, when the piece that has grown from a seed of an idea finally becomes real.
That is why whenever possible I include in my photos…
