Rare Judith Hendler Crescent Moon Lucite Bib Necklace
The talented artist, Judith Hendler, began her jewelry career in the early 1980ís. Experimenting with lucite scraps from her husbandís furniture design studio, she created one of a kind bold gems. On a fortuitous day, designer Nolan Miller spotted Judith wearing one of her pieces, and selected 2 necklaces for Joan Collins to wear on the hit TV series, Dynasty. Soon after, fashion designer, Alfred Fiandaca, ordered several pieces for one of his runway collections which soon put her at the attention of fashion industry. In a short few months, she was selling at Bonwitt Teller, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Her pieces were used in many television series including Dynasty, Knotís Landing, Hotel, and Days of Our Lives. Her "champagne" twist bracelet was used in a major ad campaign for Elizabeth Arden, and examples of her works were published in many international fashion magazines including Vogue and Harperís Bazaar.

I am very pleased to offer these elegant earrings from Judith Hendlerís personal collection. Her Acri-Gems jewelry collection is made from Acrivue which is a plastic originally intended for aircraft windows. It has a translucency of Bacarrat crystal, and Judith says jewelry made from it "Öis like wearing an illusion." She views her work as "wearable sculpture", and each piece is hand cut and polished (not molded like most acrylic jewelry).

This is one of the best Hendler pieces I've had the privilege of selling. It is impressive in it's design and scale, and only a handfull of this design were made. The signature neckring is 5" in diameter and has a wearable length of 16". The crescent moon center piece is 5 1/2" long x 5" wide and hangs from a sterling silver enhancer. It is in excellent condition and is signed "Judith Hendler" on the neckring. It comes with it's original pouch and paper label. Ms. Hendler's personal pieces are available online EXCLUSIVELY through Erik Yang at "The Lush Life Antiques."
