Time flies with Efva Attling at David-Andersen


 Jewelry designer Efva Attling

Efva Attling er en gründerkvinne og multikunstner du blir svært inspirert av! Den svenske smykkedesigneren var selv til stede på sitt eksklusive shoppingeventet hos David-Andersen i Karl Johan tirsdag 18. oktober. Hun trollbant gjestene med historier fra sitt spennende liv som fotomodell (i 12 år), låtskriver, sanger, programleder, moteredaktør og klesdesigner. Først for 20 år siden gjorde hun alvor av sin tenåringsdrøm om å bli smykkedesigner. Etter bare seks måneder gikk Madonna i Efva Attling. Designeren sier hun vil formidle en tanke med sine smykker: Det å være et godt menneske som respekterer deg selv og andre.

Carpe diem er veldig viktig. Her og nå er fantastisk! Mitt favoritt-uttrykk er amor fati, latinsk for  "kjærligheten til vår skjebne". Du har fått dette livet, og det er opp til deg å gjøre det beste ut av det, forteller Efva Attling.

Smykkedesigneren har laget en lekker og klassisk klokke, som symboliserer noe hun vil understreke:

Vi sier alltid at tiden går og tiden går, men det er stressende. I Österlandet (Finland) sier de at tiden kommer, og det er så fint! Jeg har laget en klokke, "time will come", og det kommer den til å gjøre så lenge det er batteri i den, avslutter Attling tankefullt.

Short summary in English:

Efva Attling is an entrepreneur and multiartist you get very inspired by! The Swedish jewelry designer was present at her exclusive shopping event at David-Andersen in Karl Johan, Oslo, on Tuesday 18th of October. She amazed the guests with stories from her exciting life as a photo model (for 12 years), songwriter, singer, TV presenter, fashion editor and clothing designer. It's only 20 years ago when she decided to fulfill her teenage dream about becoming a silversmith. After just six months, Madonna wore Efva Attling. The designer says she wants to convey a thought with her jewelry: To be a good human who respect yourself and others.

— Carpe diem is very important. Her and now is amazing! My favorite expression is
amor fati, Latin for 'love of fate'. You've been given this life, and it's up to you to make the best of it, Efva Attling explains with love.

Efva Attling made this necklace in collaboration with Red Cross to help re-build Khao Lak in Thailand after the big tsunami in 2004. It has raised 9 million NOK (approx 1,1 million USD)! The income also goes to other humanitarian disasters. Efva Attling was in Bangkok when it happened. Several of her friends lost their whole families. — The angel represents all the children who weren't strong enough to cling on and all the parents who lost their children, she says.
