Donna Chambers, fine jewelry goldsmith, designer and entrepreneur, has achieved an enviable level of success that began with a gifted past and ambitious goals. Born and raised in Ossining, New York, Donna was recognized at an early age by Vera Linens and later by Oleg Cassini for her talents in artistic design. Vera hired Donna as a teenager to create textile designs for her multi-million dollar design operation that was located in Ossining. Vera established a fund and scholarship in honor of her late husband, and Donna became the first recipient of the George Neuman Scholarship.
In the fall of 1968, Donna went to study at Pratt Institute from which she graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts.
