“Jewel of a gallery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

This artists' gallery was such a great discovery which was almost at the end of our shopping trip...stunning photography (some of which now hangs in our London house) by award winning photographer, Andrea Motta and really lovely unique pieces of arty silver and gold jewellery dotted around this art house. Bought a gorgeous matt silver elegant bracelet which I am delighted with. My daughter purchased a lovely bandanna which she then promptly lost but Andrea and colleague managed to post another out, beautifully wrapped. Delightful, friendly and so interesting....a MUST visit if you are in the beautiful island of Santorini. Will definitely stay in touch.

“Lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

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.

“So lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

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 displayed on the classic cut-out cliff ledges of Santorini. The woman working there was incredibly sweet and helpful. When a friend of mine couldn't decide on a ring, she told us to only get something if we loved it and if we decided we loved it later, she'd be happy to ship it to us wherever we wanted. We also casually mentioned how thirsty we were and she brought us a bottle of cold water and cups.

I got a gorgeous bracelet with stones and silver for 20 euros, and I wear it every day. There are a number of much more expensive pieces, but truly there is something for every price range. Definitely worth the visit!

“" Beautiful boutique"'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Mnemosyne is the most beautiful and unique boutique you will find in Oia. Just off the main road lies this wonderful gallery/boutique. Warm, welcoming and fun to talk to, Andrea and Alessandra, will invite you into their shop. This artistic duo have been blessed with both amazing talents and endearing personalities. No high pressure techniques to be seen here!
Mnemosyne has unique, hand crafted artisan jewelry. They have gold, gold plate as well as sterling silver jewelry. Many with gorgeous stones or gems. Many of the pieces are from local artisans. This jewelry is of fine quality, yet the prices are quite reasonable and fair.
You will also find visually stunning photography available for purchase by Andrea, an internationally known photographer.
There are many items available at every price point. Interesting souvenirs made from wood or fabrics. Hand hammered metal wind chimes in a rainbow of colors. Hand painted decorative items. An area filled with trendy clothing, purses and unique tee shirts. You will enjoy your shopping experience here with Andrea and Alessandra! I will definately be going back to Mnemosyne on my next visit!
