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

    Comments about MAGNIFYING GLASS NECKLACE:

    Nice looking piece but too small to actually use for magnification. You practically have to read letter by letter. If you want it just for the looks it is beautiful.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery was prompt but I think 11.95 is alot for shipping. I know it costs you some money but I mailed it back insured for less than $3. Many companies offer discount shipping for jewelry as it is so inexpensive to ship.

        Comments about MAGNIFYING GLASS NECKLACE:

        I wear the necklace to work and really like it. I don't use it to magnify,just as jewerly. But it would have been nice, due to the price if the lens had been a little bigger. That is the only negative thing I could say because otherwise, I was quite pleased.

        Comments about MAGNIFYING GLASS NECKLACE:

        I was really excited about getting this necklace. I was looking for exactly something like this to wear for my everyday instead of having to take out an extra pair of glasses to be able to see that small print. The necklace arrived and it is still great looking, however the lense part is way too small to use to read anything. I am so disappointed as I am in love with the looks of the necklace. Too bad for me, this will have to be returned.

          This is perfect for seeing the total on the guest check or checking an ingredient list in the grocery store without getting out my reading glasses. And I'd wear it as a necklace even if I didn't need the magnifier. Very versatile and stylish.
