We have a beautiful collection of hamsas that make great gifts for pretty much anyone for any occasion. We carry a large selection of artisanal hamsas, made by Israeli-based artists, as well as replicas of hamsas from the Israel Museum's collection. These latter come with a certificate of authenticity as well as an explanatory note that explains the replica's historical significance.
Artisanal hamsas include the work of Yair Emanuel, a Jerusalem-based artist who works across mediums to bring you a complete line of artistic Judaica in bright colors and whimsical designs. Emanuel offers cloth hamsas embroidered with popular motifs like the pomegranate or Old Jerusalem. He also offers wooden, hand-painted hamsas, painted ceramic relief hamsas, painted plasma-cut steel hamsas. and embroidered, appliquÃ©d hamsa wall-hangings. As always, Emauel's distinct aesthetic is legible no matter what the medium.
We also have a number of beautiful ready-to-hang hamsas from Adina Plastelina. Adina Plastelina, an artist workshop located in Old Yaffa, has made a wonderful collection of hamsas by combining polymer clay with decorative pewter frames. Adina Plastelina uses the polymer clay to mimic an old Italian glass technique called millefiore, or thousand flowers, which serves as a background for the ornate pewter hamsa. These are available in a number of colors and are sure to find a welcome place in anyone's home.
