First of all, sincere thanks goes out to all of my wonderful clients for their patronage, inspiration and referrals, without whom I wouldn't be able to pursue my passion for making jewelry!

My jewelry making roots began on the streets of The Fan District when I was a little girl with a rock tumbler and a makeshift booth on the sidewalk. One thing led to another and after earning a BFA in fine craft from Virginia Commonwealth University and a Graduate Gemologist degree from GIA in California, I worked as a diamond grader in the wholesale arena and held jobs in retail sales and management. I started Chamblin Design in 1993, and since then have won a few design awards, nurtured a family, survived a bout with cancer and made a lot of jewelry!
