About Melisses

Melisses Gallery is the brainchild of Maria Mitseli and Nicky Bee, two friends from Thessaloniki, Greece, who share a creative vision about producing, selecting and suggesting a variety of unique and original quality handmade goods that make everyday life prettier.

Maria Mitseli is a jewellery maker, while Nicky Bee focuses on painting and crafting a wide range of art objects. Their handmade endeavours, produced with love and care, are sold exclusively in Melisses Gallery shops, alongside a wide range of art produced either by well known designers, or by emerging, little known, yet very talented artists. All collections are painstakingly outsourced from all over Greece encouraging and supporting local and independent artists.

The first Melisses Gallery shop was launched in Thessaloniki in 2009. A few years later two more shops were launched, first on the Island of Hydra in 2012 and then on the island of Spetses in 2015, both in the Saronic gulf region, 2-3 hours distance with the Hydrofoil from Athens.

"This website was created for all those amazing, kind and devoted customers of ours, from the four corners of the world, that keep visiting our shops each summer and would like to access us all year round, as well as new customers who can now find us online.

Much love and really appreciate your support!"
