When I met Shona Gilbert at a Christmas lunch, I knew there was something unique and special about her. She had just moved to Dallas after living on the West Coast, East Coast and even St. Croix. Shona makes her own rules, which is one of the things I love about her.
I was so excited to see her passion poured out into SHŌNA, Reformed Vintage jewelry. What makes SHŌNA stand out from other jewelry is her statement pieces and bold designs. Shona creates one-of-a-kind “reformed vintage” masterpieces. She is greatly influenced by her travels and the fantastic diversity of fashion and style that she has observed over her lifetime. Environmentally and socially responsible, SHŌNA are hand-made pieces with reclaimed vintage materials and packages them in recycled cigar boxes.

When Shona is not designing, she is an active philanthropist in the Dallas community, contributing to and volunteering her time to various charities, including the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Dallas Museum of Art, Family Gateway and Dress 4 Yellow.
