Jewelry School to Close Its Doors

Dec. 15 is its last day.

The Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco will close on Dec. 15.

Founder Alan Revere made the announcement on the school’s website.

“My goal has always been to bring the fine craftsmanship that I learned in Europe to others who share my passion,” he wrote. “Since 1979 the Revere Academy has attracted thousands of students from all 50 states and as many countries. With past students now working as jewelers, entrepreneurs, bench technicians, designers and makers across the country and around the globe, I am proud of what the Revere Academy has accomplished. It is indeed very satisfying to know that our graduates bring happiness and beauty into the world every day.”

Revere had said in the summer that he planned to retire and that the school was for sale.

But he now says no classes will be offered in 2018.

“I feel that I have completed a personal mission to carry old world craftsmanship across the ocean and into the next millennium,” he said. “And so it is time for me to pass the torch.”

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
