Born in Stockholm, designer Efva Attling made her first piece of jewelry when she was just eleven years old. After a successful, twelve-year stint as a model, Attling started a band called The X Models, whose ballad “Two of Us” was a smash hit. While continuing to write, sing, and release records, Attling got back to her creative roots and began to design clothes. In 1996, Attling went back to where it all began and once again began to work with precious metals and stones. It wasn’t long before Attling honed in on a unique way to blend her passions, creating what she calls “Beauty with a Thought.” Often playing with words and symbols, Attling’s pieces are recognizably hers.
Born on the charming island of Hydra, Greece, Elena Votsi finds inspiration in her historic homeland. Romantic and modern, her handmade pieces evoke elegance and sophistication. She lightheartedly refers to her jewelry as “toys”, which are reflections of her love, passion and the universe. Sharp, simple lines and geometric shapes are a hallmark of Votsi’s style. Believing gold is a symbol of power and beauty, she crafts all her jewelry from this precious metal. Her work made modern history when she was asked to redesign the Olympic medals for the 2004 games in Athens.

Elie’s collections showcase a beautiful mix of couture sentiment and fine jewels in otherworldly designs that are at once ancient and futuristic. His pieces are playful and coy, many of them wearable in more than one form, manifesting the innovation and mystery present in all of Elie Top’s designs.

She only sources the highest quality eco-friendly materials, including 14-karat recycled gold, along with ethically obtained precious stones, such as colored diamonds, sapphires, rubies and opals. The collection ignites the adventure, creativity and harmony in us all.
