Festive AliCe experience full of warmth and excitement for your bespoke design
As I strolled in the countryside this morning, I watched the sun peeping through the grey clouds. Even though the weather was crisp, it didn’t feel cold. I walked for miles and reflected on how different this year has been and the challenges that have come with it.
I miss meeting you, our clients, and chatting with you in person to talk about your new piece of jewellery. There is always warmth and excitement in my studio when a client finds that perfect piece of jewellery that resonates with them or reminds them of a loved one. It might be a visitor who has spent the day in Kinsale admiring our beautiful coastline or a local looking for a design that reminds them of home. Everyone who adds AliCe to their jewellery collection will always have a piece of the West Cork coastline to treasure and hand down to the next generation.
This year, we have added a new Little Reed collection and 20 percent of sales from the first 100 pieces of jewellery will be donated to Irish charity ALONE. The beautiful and thoughtful Little Reed pendant is inspired by Aesop's Little Reed fable 'The little reed, bending to the force of the wind, soon stood upright again when the storm had passed over’. Handcrafted with a delicate chain, it is an obvious choice for gifts this Christmas.
While the AliCe Christmas shopping experience has moved online this year, you will still receive a bespoke design that I will handcraft for you to enjoy during the festive period and beyond. Knowing this fills me with warmth and excitement!
With Christmas and the New Year approaching, there is an air of hope and anticipation for a brighter 2021.
