“This collaboration is the first for the HÖGDALEN, and to me, it’s been very important that Jocke has been totally free in his creativity. My gold and silver smith Torbjörn Erstrand and I have been there to support with knowledge about the material and the craftsmanship. I have never done a designer collaboration with jewellery before, but I just knew that Jocke was right for it.” – Efva Attling
“When I was on holiday in my early 20s, I saw a bracelet made of onyx, with a small silver clasp, and I thought it looked so good. But I did not buy it. Since then, I haven’t really been able to stop thinking about it and how nice it would be to have a bracelet like that.”
“We tried to do our own version of it for the previous collection, but with just onyxes, that was also a bit larger. But the design didn’t fall into place until we made the stones much, much neater, and realized that the nuts in silver or gold was perfect to use in between. The name ‘Back in black’ refers to both Amy Winehouse and AC/DC of course. It may be one of the best titles on anything that has ever been done. Back in black. It’s so good. Many people who work with music would have given their little finger to been the one coming up with that title, because it’s so magical. It’s just typical that a hard rock band from Australia came up with it first.
