The Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce recently presented Jewelry by Gail with the OBXMADE designation. Gail Kowalski and her team were on hand as Jim Gilreath, of Rose, Harrison, Gilreath & Powers and chairman of the board, and Myra Ladd-Bone, of Atlantic Realty and immediate past chair of the Outer Banks Chamber, presented the certificate.

Jewelry by Gail represents the OBXMADE brand through her one-of-a-kind creations – jewelry like no other. “Gail’s designs are known for their flow and sense of motion; we are proud to have her as part of the OBXMADE family,” noted an Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce press release.

OBXMADE is the only registered trademark celebrating products that are locally made. “The Outer Banks is known as a premier tourist destination, a place where people come to get away from it all and enjoy life in its natural state,” stated the release. “While tourism is the #1 driver of our local economy and understanding that the commercial fishing industry has a long-standing history, the Outer Banks region has grown from those roots to include small manufacturers (boat building, screen printing, cabinet making, etc.), locally branded restaurants, retail shops and more. Whether the product is big or small, handmade or mass produced, OBXMADE rewards the ingenuity, passion, talent and time that goes into each one.”
