ELMSFORD, N.Y. -- Elmsford resident and Ossining native Donna Chambers is having her jewelry featured in the gift store of the Museum of African American History in Washington, D.C. starting on Saturday.
“It’s an honor to be singled out by the National Museum of African American History and Culture,” said Chambers, whose studio is in White Plains. “I’m humbled by the opportunity to be part of this historic moment in African American history. The museum will inspire many people from around the world to visit. I’m thrilled to have my work in front of such a vast audience.”
Several of the pieces designed and manufactured by the award-winning jewelry designer are from her trademark Antique Chinese Mother of Pearl Gambling Chip Collection. The museum will also feature Chambers’ Cameo Jewelry line.
Chambers has been a winner of The International Pearl Design Contest, a recipient of the Women’s Jewelry Association’s Annual Award for Excellence in Manufacturing, and also received the Blenheim Award for Design Excellence.
The museum's gift store will have a display case devoted solely to jewelry designed by Chambers.
