About

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'!

That is why whenever possible I include in my photos one 'work in progress' photo - so that you can join in this process, and see how the finished piece has grown!

I am also a freelance museum consultant working in the UK, and a mum of one (little Alice). I also knit, and design my own patterns (you can find me under aneksidesigns on ravelry). I like to ski and cycle, spend time with my friends and family, take Alice swimming, and (when I get a moment), read.

I hope you like my work. If you have any questions, please ask.
