Alyssa Beck began making jewelry in 1988 when she started creating bead work. After attending a silversmithing class at John C. Campbell Folk School in North Carolina in 1996, she was hooked. This new medium inspired her to further her education by attending Penland Craft School in North Carolina, and later, Red Rocks College in Colorado, to further her knowledge. She continued her studies by creating jewelry in her own workshop, participating in classes throughout the country, and teaching silversmithing classes here at the Art Association. If she's not hammering away on metal, she's out and about with her family enjoying the rivers and trails that the Jackson Hole area offers.
