The Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts is incorporating an independent design project into its Jewelry Technician Intensive course this fall. The academy's founder and director, Alan Revere, will work with students individually as they create their own jewelry designs and improve their skills and problem-solving abilities. The eight-week, full-time JTI course begins Oct. 11 at the academy's San Francisco location. Graduates earn a jewelry technician diploma. For information, call (415) 391-4179.
