Before devoting herself to the design and fabrication of acrylic jewelry, Los Angeles-born Judith Hendler was an artist whose paper sculptures were exhibited in New York, Atlanta, and throughout California. In the late 1970s Hendler began making jewelry from a large supply of surplus acrylic that had been left over from the manufacture of windshields, cockpit canopies and other elements of commercial and military airplanes. Soon the jewelry, made by her company Acri-Gems Inc., was being sold at Bonwitt Teller, Saks Fifth Avenue and other prestigious stores and was worn by actresses on several television shows including Joan Collins on Dynasty which was the top-rated television series of 1985.
