Not Your Grandmother's Necklace: Jewelry Designer to the Stars Sarah Hendler

Ep. 30
Rachel and Stephanie welcome jewelry designer Sarah Hendler, whose eponymous jewelry line was partially inspired by her grandmothers Ethel and Shirley! Tune in to learn about how grandma Ethel's love of chunky costume jewelry, and grandma Shirley's taste for fine jewelry helped to shape Sarah's jewelry collections. Sarah's chosen accessory is a mainstay of her collection, the 5 Point Pave Spear Tip Collar Necklace, a design which helped to put her on the map. In fact, Kristin Bell wore this necklace from her personal collection during each episode of the Netflix series (hang on, this one's a long title) The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window. Did we mention that Madonna wore Sarah Hendler's Single Gemstone Double Shirley Spear Earrings at the 2016 Billboard Women in Music Awards? And by the way, that was the same year when Sarah launched her business. Sarah's collections are a nod to both grandmothers, as her point of view reflects an appreciation for gemstones, craftsmanship, and uniqueness in each piece. Rachel and Sarah so enjoyed their conversation with Sarah, who very clearly loves what she does and is darn good at it!Connect with Sarah Hendler:WebsiteSarah Hendler Fine Jewelry InstagramSarah Hendler Estate InstagramLet's connect!InstagramFacebookLife's Accessories Podcast WebsiteJoin the Life's Accessories Facebook GroupEmail to with comments, questions, guest/episode ideas or tell us about a meaningful item from your closet!
