Theresia Hvorslev was one of a group of talented students of the well-known goldsmith Sven-Arne Gillgren, who was chief designer at the Swedish company GAB (G Dahlgren & Co.). After graduating from Konstfackskolan (University College of Arts & Crafts and Design) in Stockholm, she apprenticed at Georg Jensen in Copenhagen and at Bernadotte & Bjørn, the design studio of Sigvard Bernadotte and the Danish architect, Acton Bjørn.
