Shawna Tabacznik is an award winning Jewellery designer from Toronto, Canada. Born in Israel and raised in Colombia & Canada, she has completed her Bachelors degree from OCAD University.

The Legacy Collection
By abstracting the Star of David –the most recognizable Jewish symbol- into a 3D form Shawna was able to transform a cultural element of Judaism into wearable pieces of Jewellery that subtly combine meaning with aesthetics.
The Bridge Collection
Inspired by the beauty of the bridges of New York City, and the story of her grandparents engagement in the 1940s on the Brooklyn Bridge, the Bridge collection, through its bold and dynamic style, encompasses the notion of connection. Combining the structure and function of the bridge Shawna has created keepsakes that represent transitions from one place to another.
