About the designer

Get to know Alice Millner, the founder and creative director of Alice van Cal

Alice's earliest jewellery memory involves playing with her grandmother’s locket necklace, which held pictures of her late son. From her grandmother's locket, Alice gained an understanding of how jewellery can accompany individuals through their own unique journeys. The experience instilled in her a deep appreciation for the emotional significance and accompaniment that jewellery can hold.

In her childhood, Alice not only crafted purposeful beaded jewellery but also ventured into the art of macramé, tying intricate knots to create bracelets. These creations were more than just accessories; they were infused with intention and care. When gifting them to friends, she would encourage them to focus on one or three wishes, believing in the power of healing through her creations.

Inspired by the vibrant colours of the flowers adorning the Belgian coast, particularly in Knokke le Zoute, Alice found herself drawn to the beauty and vitality of nature's colour palette. Along the shores, she collected pebbles, which she adorned with drawings, finding solace and inspiration in the simplicity of these natural treasures.

In 2010, Alice relocated to London where she embarked on a transformative journey at the Cartier workshop. Spending countless hours every day, she immersed herself in the world of jewellery craftsmanship. Under the guidance of seasoned artisans, she honed her skills and deepened her understanding of the intricate artistry behind each piece.

In 2012, Alice fell in love with creating bespoke jewellery. It was her way into the world of creating unique pieces, made to match each individual customer’s energy and needs. An excellent way to understand how jewellery truly matches our own niche ways of being, living and feeling.

This rich tapestry of experiences ignited Alice’s passion for jewellery, leading her to create her namesake brand. Recognizing the need for timeless, versatile, and meaningful pieces, she founded her company in 2018 with a mission to spread light and intention through her jewellery. Each of her designs reflects her joyful personality and values of gratitude and generosity, instilled in her by her family and past. Crafted with meticulous care and sourced from the finest materials, her pieces embody her belief in giving back, with proceeds from sales donated to selected charities close to her heart.

Alice's ultimate aim is for her clients to experience their life - with its ups and downs -  while wearing her creations, encapsulating that life indeed is a journey and we are here all to find our light and potential within.
