My Guest on Thursday, September 12th at 3 p.m. PDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk will be Alan Revere, Founder and Director of the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts.
About: Alan Revere, Founder and Director of the Academy, is a master goldsmith and award-winning jewelry designer with degrees in both psychology and sculpture. His passion for making jewelry lead him to Germany in 1972, where he trained under some of the 20th century's most celebrated goldsmiths and designers. Returning to California with skills rarely taught in the United States, he was asked to share what he had learned with other jewelers and students. For several years, Mr. Revere taught in college jewelry programs, and in 1979 he established the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts.
Mr. Revere writes and lectures on a variety of jewelry subjects. His first series of articles appeared in JCK Magazine during the 1980s and led to the publication of Professional Goldsmithing. His second series, Professional Jewelry Repair, has been published as Professional Ring Repair and Professional Setting Repair. Mr. Revere is past president of the American Jewelry Design Council and founder of the Contemporary Design Group. Alan teaches the Jewelry Technician Intensive, Design, and Fabrication.
Founded in 1979 by master goldsmith Alan Revere, the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts immediately became a center for jewelry and jewelers around the world; a place where master craftsman pass on traditional skills to the next generation. The Academy is located in the beautiful tower suite on the ninth floor of the Humboldt Bank Building.
