Judith's original idea was to make one-of-a-kind creations to sell at art shows or galleries. While shopping for material at a fabric store on Beverly Blvd., in which to place the jewelry, she was spotted by Nolan Miller, the clothing designer for the blockbuster TV series, "Dynasty". Mr. Miller invited Judith to bring her designs to his studio so that he and Joan Collins could select pieces for the show, for which he would then design clothing. On entering the room where the jewelry was spread on the floor, Joan exclaimed, "Oh, Nolan, can we have some of these for Alexis!!" (Alexis was Joan's character in Dynasty.) And so, the use of Judith Hendler's jewelry on television and in the movies began. Such shows as Dynasty, Knot's Landing, Hotel, Days of Our Lives, along with many others were all to sport her creations. Over the years various other designers used her pieces on the runway to enhance and unite their clothing. Among those were Alfred Fiandaca, Gregory Poe and James Reva as well as the aforementioned Nolan Miller.
Over the years Judith Hendler's jewelry has appeared in most of the larger, upscale department stores, such as Bonwit Teller, Saks 5th Ave., I. Magnin, Bullocks, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom as well as many smaller boutiques.
Judith Hendler's designs have appeared in numerous fashion magazines, such as Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, Elle, Women's Wear Daily, as well as in both Canada and Japan. Designs have also been used as cornerstones of ad campaigns such as her Champagne bracelet that was used by Elizabeth Arden in a cosmetic ad campaign.
