Level With Me Here

With this stylishly kinetic jewelry, the wearer is the center of their own solar system, with the bubbles of these real working levels floating softly around them. You can take them off and use them to hang up a painting or install a bookshelf, but they'll look so good you'll have them on again as soon as your task is complete. Handmade in Rhode Island by LeeAnn Herreid.

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

    Comments about MINI LEVEL EARRINGS:

    I am a modelmaker/carpenter and currently work in an upscale hardware store as a sales professional. I wear these earrings proudly, because they are trendy, and a great conversation starter. These earrings are very well made, and I get compliments on them daily. The only problem I had, was with the necklace version of the level. It lost some liquid... I sent it back to the artist, and she repaired it for free. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to have something really unique and special.

      Comments about MINI LEVEL EARRINGS:

      As an archaeologist, we use line levels daily in the field, so I was very excited about these earrings (and the matching necklace). The necklace is really too short & small, but the earrings are much more wearable. My only complaint about the earrings is that they are a bit small. People don't notice them immediately. They have to be very close to see what they are. Love the quality of the earrings.

        These are great! I am a high school teacher and my students thought these were the best--and I have A LOT of unique earrings. Perfect for someone like me who considers themselves slightly off kilter!

        Comments about MINI LEVEL EARRINGS:

        these earrings look real nice on the web, but when you see them up close, they are lacking. The hook that goes through the ear is waaaay too long, extends down beyond the level. Also, very flimsy material...when mine arrived, the hook was bent and I had to bend it back into place. The metal used is not of high quality, similar to a paper clip.

        not so good

        By 

        from ME

        Comments about MINI LEVEL EARRINGS:

        Bought these a few years ago. Loved them for about a year or so. Then, the color within disappeared. Same thing happened with the thermostat earrings I bought at the same time. No more color within either pair after two years or so.

        For the price? These should last a lifetime. Buy and enjoy but know the color will go eventually and then you're left with nothing special at all.

            Great history from the formerly known industrial/jewelry state of RI & made a memorable gift for my daughter born in that state almost 18 years ago.

              These earrings are a scream! They're clever and original. They're actually smaller than I anticipated based on the website image -- so they have a more feminine 'feel' about them than I expected. They're solidly made and the earring wires themselves are very strong. My sense is that they will last a good long time!

                  Lovely earrings in terms of looking modern and stylish with the added benefit of being extremely unusual. I love the humour value of keeping a level head. The wire length sometimes worries me in terms of being short and the earrings might fall out, but I love the product overall.
