Alan Revere

Alan Revere holds a unique position in the jewelry community, with one foot firmly planted as an award-winning designer and the other as one of the country’s most prominent jewelry educators. With degrees in psychology and art, followed by German training as a goldsmith, Revere set out to make jewelry. For two decades, he designed and created a signature line of dramatic jewelry, which was sold in stores and galleries nationwide. In addition, Alan has trained over 10,000 students at the school he founded and directs, the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts, in San Francisco, California.

Alan’s jewelry appears in many books and his work is included in the Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim, the GIA Museum in Carlsbad and the Oakland Museum. Alan is the author of seven instructional books, a hundred articles and a series of DVD’s for goldsmiths and jewelers. Alan Revere is the founder of the Contemporary Jewelry Design Group (CJDG.org) and past president of the American Jewelry Design Council (AJDC.org). With his deep understanding of the field and his broad influence on the industry, it is no wonder that Alan is revered as, “A master’s master.”
