Internationally renowned jewellery designer Elena Votsi has worked with Ralph Lauren and is inspired by the landscape of her birthplace.

Set in a whitewashed historic Hydriot building on the island’s main harbour, the artist’s eponymous shop is a treasure trove of modern Greek finds. Simple, sleek display cases highlight both her bohemian designs, all handmade in Greece – think colourful leather lariats with silver fish pendants and casual clutches emblazoned with Greek flags – as well as her more geometric fine jewellery pieces.

If high end jewellery is not for you, then Votsi’s white ceramic mugs with donkeys or fish graphics, her patterned cushions and assorted textiles may be the very special Hydra souvenir you have been looking for.
