Photo Gallery | Mystique Jewelers to Host Trunk Show for Local Designers

Mystique Jewelers of Old Town Alexandria is proud to showcase local jewelry designers and artisans this upcoming weekend at a trunk show. Mystique will be displaying the most recent work of Andrea D'Ambrosia, Pam Mickley Albers, and Anne Mandros this upcoming Saturday, September 24 from 10:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Here is a sneak preview of some of their work. 

"I'm thrilled to host these talented local designers, " adds Mystique owner Elizabeth Mandros. "I love how Andrea blends the old with the new to create truly one-of-a-kind pieces. And Pam's classical designs are both beautiful and versatile." 

Mystique Jewelers is located at 211 The Strand right on the Alexandria Waterfront. 

"I look forward to jewelry lovers coming to Old Town and the surrounding area to stop by and take a look at this one day show. We offer complimentary parking in front of the store which is unusual for Old Town and a spirit at noon," added Mandros.


Here is some information about the three local artists:

Andrea D'Ambrosia has been creating one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces in elegant, bold and clever designs of semi-precious gemstones and other beautiful, natural materials since 2006. Her most recent work incorporates vintage elements into classic designs like using a vintage brooch as a clasp or vintage rhinestone earrings as drops for the classic and versatile lariat.

Pam Mickley Albers, an architect in Middleburg, builds on her architectural background in her jewelry design, incorporating concepts based upon mouldings with classical elements and proportions. Her newest line features oxidized sterling with pearls and gemstones. Pam is also the owner of the Middleburg boutique PATINA, which carries her jewelry, antiques and gifts.

Anne Mandros, of Shell Mistique, has shell art that is one of a kind. She creates shell accessories, shell furniture, and other shell designs. No one else will have the same piece. "I've got a new madness! I'm running wild for shells. The beauty of shells is as infinite as flowers," said Mary Delany, an 18th century shell artist.
