A thing of beauty is a joy forever

Adina Plastelina, a leading Israeli judaica designer, has revived an antique glass cutting process known as millefiori (Italian for "thousand flowers") and adapted it to polymer clay. She combines the clay with precious metals and with painstaking patience and expertise, she rolls, cuts, bakes and polishes every item. The tough enamel finish ensures durability and timeless elegance.

Every one of Adina Plastelina's products is hand-made. Her hallmark is her blend of vibrant cheerful colors and the timeless grace and beauty of each item. She employs striking color combinations of blues, turquoises, purples, snakeskins, corals and pearls. Appropriate for day or night, casual or elegant wear, her collection blends seamlessly with any style. Canaan Online awards her the accolade, “A thing of beauty is a joy forever”.

Collection of botanical, zoological and jewish symbols

The world of botany and the animal kingdom play important roles in Adina's upbeat collection. Her favorite pieces of jewelry appear as natural as an olive leaf, a grape leaf, a kahlo flower or even a tree of life. Delicate and refined birds and insects fly their way into Adina's collection of hummingbirds, butterflies, peacock feathers, dragonfly wings, swallows, paradisaea feathers and seahorses.

Traditional Jewish symbols also feel at home among the refined earrings and necklaces. Adina's hamsas, stars of David, Chais and pomegranates all look great with day or eveningwear. She's even got a line of animal-print mezuzahs and Shema Israel keyrings.

The Mysterious Room Museum

Tourists from all over the world flock to her studio in Jaffa's old city and enjoy her wide selection of jewelry and decorative items. The most interesting part of her gallery is the "Mysterious Room". When performing extensive renovations in 2006, the ruins of an ancient limestone structure were revealed. The Mysterious Room now serves as an archaeological site/museum that showcases the manifold artifacts found within- including seventeen coins from the Roman and Byzantine periods, arrowheads, a signed amphora handle from the Hellenistic period, a ballista ball, a Maltese cross, a collection of animal teeth, twenty Ottoman smoking pipes, and more.
