About the Author
Alan Revere holds a unique position in the jewelry community, with one foot firmly planted as a master goldsmith and award-winning designer and the other as one of the country s most prominent jewelry educators. After earning degrees in both psychology and sculpture, Revere s passion led him to Germany, where he trained under some of the 20th century s most celebrated goldsmiths and designers. Returning to California with skills rarely taught in the United States, Mr. Revere was asked to share what he had learned with other jewelers and students. In 1979, he founded the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco, now one of the country s foremost jewelry training programs. Alan Revere is past president of the American Jewelry Design Council and founder of the Contemporary Jewelry Design Group. In addition to designing and selling thousands of pieces of jewelry, Mr. Revere has created instructional books, articles and videos for jewelry makers. It is no wonder that Alan Revere has been called, A master s master.

A couple of new projects but basically the same photos and text from "Professional Goldsmithing", once again not a bad thing!
Generally I'd give this 5 stars plus as it is the single best starting point for any jewelry maker of any level. The learning curve may be steep but instruction is quite clear. Numerous excellent step-by-step photos accompany each project. The projects are classic, not examples of this recent horrible art jewelry fad.
SO why have I dinged it? Couple of reasons. While the book is over all very elegant the section on tools is some real crumby drawings, seems like an after thought. There is no good discussion of the single most important tool; the jewelers bench. And also I'd swear many of the photos were originally gold jewelry and simply desaturated to look like silver for this "Professional Jewelry Making" volume.
The book DESERVED an upgrade on the tools and at least a couple of pages on the jewelers bench.
These complaints are nit-picking I agree but none the less I found annoying in the original volume and was disappointed to find no effort put forth in this offering to improve.
But I would still recommend this book to pretty much any jeweler and even crafts person interested in learning classic jewelry making.
