Efva Attling & Eva Dahlgren

Efva Katarina Attling, (born in February 18, 1952 in Stockholm) is a Swedish jewellery designer.

In the early 1980s she played in the band "X Models" and released the hit single Två av oss ("Two of us").

Her interest in design had her working for Levi's and H&M and in the mid 1990s she started her own line of jewellery.

She worked as a professional model for twelve years after being spotted by Eileen Ford. She was also famous for being one of Sweden's best professional disco dancers, when she worked with her friend and dancing colleague Annabelle Rice.

Attling is one of five sisters. She was married to pop singer/writer Niklas Strömstedt and by him has two children. She entered a civil union with Swedish pop singer Eva Dahlgren in 1996. In 2009 they got married, after Sweden passed its gender neutral marriage law.

Attling has received a medal from the Royal Swedish Patriotic Society in April 2011, for distinguishing herself as an internationally known jewellery designer. Her jewellry "Homo Sapiens" has been known to cause some commotion when being worn by Madonna in public.


Eva Dahlgren is a Swedish pop musician born 9 June 1960 in Umeå, Sweden. In 1996 Dahlgren made headlines in the Swedish press when she came out as a lesbian through her civil union with jewellery designer Efva Attling. In connection with the civil union, Dahlgren changed her surname to Dahlgren-Attling. Dahlgren was discovered by musician/producer Bruno Glenmark in 1978 after appearing on the TV show "Sveriges magasin" and her debut album Finns det nån som bryr sej om was released the same year.

Eva Dahlgren (born June 9, 1960) is a Swedish pop musician, born 9 June 1960 in Umeå, Sweden. In 1996 Dahlgren made headlines in the Swedish press when she came out as a lesbian through her civil union with jewellery designer Efva Attling. In connection with the civil union, Dahlgren changed her surname to Dahlgren-Attling.

Dahlgren was discovered by musician/producer Bruno Glenmark in 1978 after appearing on the TV show "Sveriges magasin" and her debut album Finns det nån som bryr sej om was released the same year. In 1979 she placed third in Melodifestivalen (the tryout competition for the Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden). She toured Sweden in 1987 with Swedish pop duo Roxette, a tour that was attended for more than 100.000 people. Dahlgren's career grew steadily with several album releases during the 1980s but her definite breakthrough in Sweden came in 1991 with the hit album En blekt blondins hjärta which sold over half a million copies and netted the singer five Grammis awards.
