Judith Hendler Acri-Gems Lucite Bangle Bracelet
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 this elegant bracelet 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).

The bracelet is slightly over 1" wide and is 2 1/8" wide at it's crossover point. it has 3/4" thick walls and an interior wearable length of 7 7/8". This piece is new old stock and has never been worn or previously sold. Judith says "this was, hands down, my best selling bracelet". It was very popular in the Japanese market and even made the front cover of one of their fashion magazines. It is in MINT condition and has it's original paper label.

Ms. Hendler's personal pieces are available EXCLUSIVELY through Erik Yang at "The Lush Life Antiques."
