Revere and Learning Annex to offer jewelry design seminar

San Francisco’s Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts is teaming up with the Learning Annex for the third time to present a day-long seminar for jewelry designers. The event titled, “How to Start Your Own Jewelry Line,” will be held in downtown San Francisco on March 20.

The Leaning Annex offers continuing education seminars nationwide and collaborated with Revere last year to present two similar events, both. More than 350 attendees came from across the country to learn marketing tips from the experts. Based on student feedback, Revere has tailored the curriculum of the upcoming seminar to be the most valuable one yet.

Experienced professionals will cover the ins and outs of making a career as a jewelry designer. The seminar is important for aspiring jewelers as well as designers who are currently marketing their work. The seminar will include the following information: How to develop your identity; Where to find inspiration; Pricing and selling your work; and How to work with sales reps, galleries, jewelry stores, trade shows, and magazines.

Moderator Alan Revere is a German trained master goldsmith, author and teacher of jewelry. Panelists include Harriete Estel Berman, an internationally acclaimed jeweler and sculpturess who uses recycled tin to construct her art. She is currently writing an ongoing series of Professional Guidelines for artists and craftpersons. Kate Richbourg has been working in the bead industry, teaching nationwide classes and helping students promote their own beadwork for over ten years. Elizabeth Shyppert, co-owner of Velvet da Vinci metal arts gallery in San Francisco, has overseen all aspects of running a gallery for the past 13 years, including finances, curating shows and choosing gallery artists.

The fee for the day is $55 general admission, or $32 for Revere students. For further information contact Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts, 760 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94102.
