Judith Hendler began her jewelry career by tinkering around with plastics that were found in her husband's garage. Her husband received these scraps from a friend who owned an aircraft company where they used plastic for airplane parts. This scrap was no longer usable for the planes because of a flaw but it could certainly be used in jewelry designs. Judith Hendler saw this and her popular jewelry line was born. Added to her success was the fact that her designs were worn by Joan Collins playing "Alexis" in the show "Dynasty." Consequently, her designs were in demand by the public in the '80's and they were sold in luxury trend setting stores, such as Bloomingdales. They remain popular today and are worn by collectors and those who love something "different." I am one of her fans and received compliments every time I have worn her designs. This particular necklace is constructed from a shiny white acrylic plastic. As in all her jewelry, each piece is hand made and individually crafted. It has her iconic signature half moon tube that sits on the back of the wearer's neck. Connected to this tube by a hook and eye are 21 white "pegs" or "logs" connected to one another with small shiny silver tone connectors. The pegs alternate in size, 1 1/2" and 1 1/4". They are 1/2" thick. The pegs are dimensional, thick and chunky. The design is modernistic and stunning. It makes quite a statement. The peg section of the necklace measures 16 1/2" and the tubular back has a diameter of 6" . The necklace is not marked, most of Hendler’s weren’t. The necklace is in great condition. It is light and easy to wear. It is a bright white and the color as well as the design makes a strong statement. Sure to get attention, not for the shy. So retro and yet so now! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
