Letter From Alan Revere

ALAN REVERE, Founder, Director and Instructor

With the Academy entering its 38th year, I think back on how I got started making jewelry. When I hammered out my first silver band, I discovered a passion within me that I had never known before and that has not left me since. Right from the start, I loved working with my hands making jewelry. I wanted to learn everything there was to know about jewelry, so I wound up attending a 100-year-old jewelry school in Germany. It was a life-changing experience! Upon returning to the United States, jewelers asked me to show them some of the things I had learned in Europe, and in 1979, the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts opened its doors.

The Revere Academy occupies the tower suite on the 9th floor of the Humboldt Bank Building. We are centrally located 2 blocks from Union Square, within walking distance of hotels, restaurants, museums, shops, theaters and transportation in what is often called “America’s favorite city.” This is a great place to stimulate your creativity, learn a wonderful craft, begin a career, add new skills, network and learn from nationally recognized artisans who teach the skills they use every day. Our faculty includes over a dozen master jewelers and experts who love what they do and are eager to share their passion and knowledge with you. Our fully equipped, state-of-the-art studios feature live HD video enlargements so that students can see every detail during demonstrations.
