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 in San Francisco's historic Phelan building.
