The American Jewelry Design Council has elected Alan Revere to be the president for the coming year. A longtime member of the organization, this will be Revere’s second time serving as president. He was also president in the early 2000’s.
The Council elected Adam Neeley as Vice President, Merry-Lee Rae as Treasurer, and Jennifer Rabe Morin as Secretary.
“AJDC is on a roll right now,” says Revere. “Paul Klecka is stepping down after leading the group to a new level of engagement with the jewelry industry.”
Alan Revere is widely known as an award-winning jewelry designer as well as Director of the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco from 1979-2017. He is a German-trained master goldsmith, designer, and author of 7 books on jewelry. His Facebook Group, “LetsMakeProfessionalJewelry,” has 30,000 members in 162 countries, replicating the projects from his book, Professional Jewelry Making.
