After reading reviews, I made a special effort to find the gallery. I, too, was disappointed - not by the quality, but by the meager offerings. After reading the response to another disappointed visiter, I understand why - I was there close to mid-October. However, Oia was crowded with tourists that day with more than 1cruise ship in the harbor.... More

Having read the reviews and the Mnemossyne being the number 1 attraction in Oia I had expected more, there were other galleries which I thought had a much better selection of interesting pieces.

This was clearly the best "shop" that we saw or visited in Oia. I believe we met and got to know Alexandra - what a sweet heart. The photographs here are very interesting and the jewelry beautiful. My wife found multiple pieces that she liked --- luckily she only bought one. HA. This shop isn't the easiest to find since... More

The gallery is at the end of a walk through one of the prettiest towns in Greece. The shock of the recession that is very present and palpable in Athens seems so far away when walking this incredible town packed with tourists shopping in streets full of stores that go from the mundane to the artistic. This gallery is full... More

Absolutely loved everything in the gallery. Beautifully crafted, unique pieces of jewelry. Alexandra was just delightful and very accommodating. Still communicating with her for more pieces that she will ship home. There is something for every budget! Definitely worth the visit!!

I loved everything from the unique pieces of jewerely to the interesting art pieces.. I purchased my first piece of art work, a gorgeous photograph titled 'Freedom'! Alexandra was such a delight to connect with, super friendly & down to earth.

This little gallery is a little out of the way--I wouldn't have found it if not for TripAdvisor. It's about a 10-minute walk down the main road followed by a little turn toward the water. It's small, but there are signs clearly marking the way when you get close. Beautiful, high-quality pieces of a range of prices and styles are... More
