Each flower measures 1 1/2" diameter; total necklace length is approximately 18" with slide-in clasp. Matching clip earrings are also 1 1/2" diameter.

JUDITH HENDLER Lucite Heart & Sterling Necklace & Earring Set Judith Hendler modernist necklace and drop earring set is unmarked, but clearly her distinctive work. Clear rigid tubular lucite necklace fits a slim neck, measuring approximately 14 1/2", and hooking at the side. A sterling silver clamp (marked Sterling on reverse) fits over the center portion of a lucite tube, from which is suspended a huge molded lucite heart. The heart measures 2 3/8" wide; it is thicker around the exterior (1/2") to create a bowl-like depression in the center. A clear rhinestone is set into the upper part of the heart. Matching post earrings for pierced ears features a sculpted sterling silver disc at the ear, from which is suspended a 1 1/2" wide heart made in the same manner as the necklace pendant. Earrings measures a total of 2 1/8" height.
The necklace has a small area of surface scratching on the back of the tube near the centerpiece, which is not conspicuous and does not affect structural soundness in any way.
