Mnemossyne: Minimalist Greek Jewellery and Art Gallery

01 | Story

Mnemossyne captures everything that is beautiful about Santorini; love, simplicity, minimalism and charm. A true muse.

Mnemossyne is the outcome of first sight love. When Alexandra and Andrea, the founders of this minimalist jewelry store and art gallery arrived in Santorini, they knew that the dazzling Greek Island had helpless become their home. With a strong focus on celebrating Greek culture, including ancient and modern designs, the shop is adorned with truly one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted pieces that are enamoured by all.

Andrea Motta and Alexandra Bastos grew up in the same neighborhood in São Paulo, Brazil, until Andrea ventured to explore the world and work on her Documentary Photography, her primary passion. Alexandra experienced her own adventures, living and working with art in New York City. But see, destiny has its tricks and 20 years had to pass until they met again on the striking cliffs of Oia just to fall completely head over feet for Santorini.

02 | The Gallery

So Mnemossyne is, yes, the first modern minimalist jewelry store in Oia, but then, Santorini has plenty of jewelry stores. It is among the best places where you can discover gorgeous gifts in Santorini, but guess what: there are a couple of other places you can shop for Greek art in the island. What makes Mnemossyne so special is passion. And passion is what’s reflected on each convex corner of the round traditional cave house that hosts the gallery store. On every piece of art and on each and every handmade jewelry.

Mnemossyne Art Gallery and Jewelry Shop is a homage to contemporary jewelry art and Greek contemporary art. All jewelry are handmade by Greek artists or by the owners themselves while contemplating the Santorini Caldera and soaking in Greece’s culture. It’s now in its ninth year, and since its opening, every artwork on display has also to be handcrafted by a Greek artist.

03 | Our Mission

Mnemossyne’s mission is to make possible for you to own a tiny bit of the Aegean Sea, a portable piece of the magical sunset in Oia, and a portion of the love we put in making and curating each one of our minimalist jewelry and Greek art pieces. Because Mnemossyne didn’t just happened. It was idealized. As blissful lives can be.
