Efva Attling is one of Sweden’s leading designers.
I think her jewellery was the first Swedish jewellery I bought. Here is my friend Marie in Efva Attling rose petal earrings and necklace
Efva’s site says: Efva Attling was born in Stockholm. She made her first piece of jewelry when she was only eleven years old. By the age of sixteen she was a pupil of one of Sweden’s greatest silversmiths. When Eileen Ford spotted her, a twelve year long modelling career began. Efva worked as a model in Milan, Paris, London and with Ford Models in New York, but she wanted to change her career, and so she did.
Having music in the family and in her heart, Efva started a band in 1981, called ‘The X Models’. The band had a hit ballad in the 80´s, “Two of us”, which Efva composed. While she kept on writing, singing and releasing records, she was also working with design in different projects. Efva has designed clothes for big, international brands such as Levi’s and H&M, and she also had her own line of maternity wear – “Pretty Pregnant”.
In the year of 1996, Efva went back to her origins: working with silver, gold and precious stones. Efva’s specialty is playing around with words and expressions. This gives the jewelry yet another dimension, ‘as I used to write lyrics, I still want to move people with words. I call my design “Beauty with a Thought”, she says.
