About
Unique variety of fine art photography and jewelry, all astonishingly handmade by local artists. The gallery has a very harmonic atmosphere in an elegant cave house located only a few steps before the Castle and the famous sunset spot in Oia.

It's such a great gallery and shop. The artist (I'm sorry I forgot your name!) was really friendly and helped us get exactly what we wanted. Beautiful jewelry, and all handmade, not junky souvenirs. Perfect place to find a beautiful piece to take home. Highly recommend!

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 it is off the main pathway, down some stairs. When you find it, the location is nice because it IS off the main pathway.
Stop in to see the beautiful pieces they have for offer. Share with them your favorite travel spots because they love to travel and have a few months in the off season when they recharge their batteries, so to speak.

Mnemossyne is without a doubt my favorite boutique on this magical island. In a place where boutique meets art gallery, you find yourself surrounded by gorgeous handmade jewellery, artifacts of all kinds, as well as beautiful photography by Andrea Motta. The modern style of the boutique mixed with the very authentic cave house in which it is located creates a very lovely atmosphere. I purchased a few items, one of which was a silver bracelet double plated in gold. The quality of their jewellery is very high. After a few months, it still looks like new. My boyfriend also got a everyday bracelet made out of fabric. I must say, I was charmed by this place, maybe because of the fact that the fist time I walked in, the owners, who are artists themselves, were painting decorative wooden plates in the shop. This instantly proved to me the authenticity of the boutique. Very kind and friendly, they take their time to explain how every piece is made and with what material in order to help you pick out what suits you best. Must go to Mnemossyne!
May i just add, to my great surprise, i opened up a Mnemossyne bracelet for Christmas this year. I guess my boyfriend caught on when he saw i was hesitating between 2 bracelets.

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.

Handmade jewelry designed by Greek artists. Delightful owners who take care and pride in their store and provided detail descriptions and care of their jewelry. They were extremely friendly and provided an excellent recommendation for a wonderful day of walking. After our walk, we went back and purchased a beautiful reasonably priced pair of earrings and also received an excellent recommendation for dinner.

P.S. I hope they read this and are enjoying their Fitbit!

Andreas and Alexandra of Mnemossyne were the most gracious shop owners we met on our 12 day journey on Santorini. Their shop contains incredible unique jewelry, photography, clothing and paintings. Unlike majority of the shops found in Santorini, their shop contained very classy items.

The ladies that run this art gallery are world travelers. They have a very smart and fashionable collection of jewelry for sale along with beautiful one of a kind photographs. This was a highlight of our visit in terms of shopping in Oia.

My girlfriend and I went to this gallery and we did not think that it was dissapointing!!! Actually we though that the gallery was very different from any other we have seen in the island! It's about taste! So much that we bought pretty much all our presents here! Alexandra one of the owners was very helpful and not puxing at all! Very symphathetic! Amazing experience! Totally recommended!
