Olivia Shih, 2016 Revere Academy New Student Scholarship Winner

"Taking Stone Setting 4 at Revere Academy was an eye-opening experience! Nancy really distilled decades of professional experience into five days, and not only did she break down the complexity of stone setting into manageable steps, she also clearly explained the logic behind each step. This comprehensive class covers tool-making, tool maintenance, stone-setting, and even a bit of polishing. The degree to which Nancy was attuned to her students' needs and adapted accordingly definitely exceeded my expectations. What I learned from this class will help me better serve my clients, and I'm even thinking of the possibilities of a bridal collection now!"
