Judith Hendler Acri Gems Brilliant Amber Acrylic Neck ring with Brass Chain and Acrylic Triplette Stations Sautoir Necklace. Judith Hendler Acri Gems Geometric Clear Acrylic Pendant and Frosted Acrylic Neck Ring Necklace. Deemed "The Queen of Acrylic", Hendler was the premier designer in the 1980s of clear and colored fabulously glamorous space age acrylic jewelry. Saks Fifth Avenue's largest vendor of costume jewels in the early 1980s. California made and designed, see my book Judith Hendler: Artistry in Acrylic for more examples of her wonderful, always popular classic jewelry. Write with questions on how to order it. It is self-published, so I am the one to order it from. Author signed copies of this book which was produced in conjunction with the Gene Autry Museum and the Museum of California Art and Design show in 2016 on California Women designers of note, of which Hendler was one. Hendler's classic acrylic neck ring with a special c ring/o ring connection makes these lightweight, light filled glowing space gems super glamorous and easy to wear. This rare Hendler necklace in glowing and dazzling brilliant amber is a rare and almost unique design. It uses one neck ring for the rear section of the necklace , but instead of a second neck ring hooking into the upper ring, a chain hooks into it, and that chain has lengths of non embellished length, and then 3 stations combining oval and circular triplette sandwiches of acrylic creating 'stones' like many fine gem stones are achieved as well. Doublet and triplette are fine jewelry descriptions for these unusual acrylic dazzlers! The neck ring is approximately .33" gage thickness and fits all sized sized necks. The chain and stone section is at least 18 inches long and the neckring adds a few more inches of overall length. The stones are three-sectioned and approximately .60" in diameter. The neck ring hooks on the wearer's left side. Unsigned. Verified authentic Judith Hendler. A sautoir is a long necklace of the ilk of the lower section with chain connections.....thus, our use of that term. Excellent vintage condition.
