LeeAnn Herreid

LeeAnn Herreid

During high school in Concord, Massachusetts, LeeAnn Herreid's art teacher recognized her talent and fascination with metalwork and volunteered her time and torch to teach LeeAnn how to solder metal. As she progressed through high school, LeeAnn worked as a goldsmith in an antique repair and restoration shop.

After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, LeeAnn moved to Maine for a few years and gained experience working with 18-carat gold, platinum and diamonds. She moved back to Rhode Island and began working in Newport, where her business flourished. She chose the name Individual Icons to embody the notion that the wearer should find personal expression and functionality in her pieces. Her compass jewelry, for example, is more than just decorative; it helps people find their way.

Four years later, LeeAnn relocated her business to Santa Fe, New Mexico and absorbed inspiration from the different culture, topography and climate. Yet in another four years, she decided to return to New England, and settled in a seaside town in Rhode Island. collection

    My daughter has grown kids and is now being trained in the home improvement field. She does not usually wear jewelry. She loves the necklace and is wearing it everyday. It will help advertise her new career. At last I found a piece of jewelry that she will wear!

        This necklace was perfect in size for my 31 year old daughter. It was significant because her father was a bricklayer before he died. This necklace sits high on her neck but not so high as to look funny. Nice quality, I would recommend it for women of any age. It is delicate yet can be worn everyday. Love it.

          A bit overpriced I think for the quality but my daughter really loved it. This is the 2nd one she's had. The first one she had the fluid evaporated from the necklace.

            I am an archaeologist and since we use line levels all the time in our work, it is the perfect gift for archaeologists. I love the quality and the look, but I hate that I cannot change the chain, and that the chain is relatively short. Also, item was much smaller than I had thought.

                    This necklace is a real conversation piece. At first, people remark on its beauty and then upon closer inspection, they laugh to discover what it really is! The silver is of great quality and is very pretty in and of itself. I like to think this piece keeps me "level".
