Nestled in the heart of Old Jaffa's enchanting cultural hub, as close as possible to the deck of the renewed port, lies "Adina Plastelina", a workshop that opened its doors in 2004. "Adina Plastelina" brings to life the ancient Milefiori technique, using precious metals & polymer clay, to create timeless and prestigious hand-made jewelry. A visit to this unique gallery includes guidance and viewing of a hypnotic demonstration video along with watching the creation process live. The Mysterious room of "Adina Plastelina":In the year 2006, during archaeological excavations in the gallery, the ruins of a round ancient structure were revealed. The many and varied incredible archaeological artifacts that were discovered serve as a testimony to the lives and activities of local residents - who have influenced the history of Israel for 3,500 years, spanning from the late-Bronze Age until today.The exhibition is permanent and open to all with no charge.

Lovely store, beautiful jewelry (you can choose your pattern and your style for any shape you liked there), very helpful and friendly staff. Prices are quite high, but tourists can return VAT on the way home. And besides that, if you explore the store, you'll find a room with archaeologic artifacts there! Because it's old Jaffo, history is everywhere :)

If you are looking to bring back some local jewellery, then this is the place to visit. Lovely, helpful staff to show you how their products are made. Quite amazing. You won't be disappointed if you just want to have a look in.

It is a good jewelry store. good design, high quality, nice staff. I like it very much. And you can get tax refund here. But I need to remind you according to Israel tax authority, only if you hold B2, 3, 4 visa or some permits, you can get the refund. (NOT student visa or others). It would be better... More

Adina is not only a shop but also a realworkshop where beautiful artcrafts and jewelry are created. Besides, the shop resides in a trmendously old hose. A special room shows excavations going back some 3500 years ago, at the same place!

Shopping around ancient well is pretty new way of doing it. The finds in the ancient well are part of the displays for the lovely jewelry they sell.

One of a few little stores in Old Jaffa, good selection of jewelries with some being very unique. Too bad we got there at the very last moment before they were closing.
