The Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco will hold an exhibition and sale of work made by the academy’s faculty, students, and graduates from April 13–23.
The exhibition, which will take place at Manika Jewelry Gallery in the city’s Union Square district, will also feature award-winning pieces from the Jewelry Artisan’s Collective 2011 Design Challenge, “Don’t Call it Frisco,” which challenged designers to create jewelry inspired by life in San Francisco. Revere graduate Meagan Reelitz won the grand prize for her silver and diamond ring entitled “The Diamonds are in the Cracks,” inspired by the city’s earthquakes.
Five percent of all sales during this show will be donated to Made by Survivors, an organization dedicated to help survivors of human trafficking rehabilitate through jobs and other programs, including jewelrymaking.
An opening reception will be held at Manika Jewelry on April 13 from 5–7 p.m.
