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

Falsely Advertised

By 

from Yonkers, NY

Pros

    Cons

    • Not As Shown In Picture

    Best Uses

      Comments about PHILLIPS HEAD SCREW EARRINGS:

      These earrings are shown as a whole screw, the top part is the slotted head and the bottom, as shown in the picture on your website, a raised helical thread running around it making it look exactly like a screw. I was disappointed when the earrings arrived and it was just the top part of the screw and a regular earring post. I was especially disappointed because they were a gift and, although the person was grateful, I was upset by the false advertisement.

          I really liked the picture as it looks rustic and industrial, but upon receiving them they looked just like silver earrings. It is a great buy, but it wasn't what I was expecting.

                  I loved these adorable earrings until the backs fell off and I lost them. Well made, but just regular standard backings. They are indeed super cute and unique. I keep hoping they will reappear.

                    I never had a burning desire to pierce my ears, but after seeing these here years ago, I went ahead with it. These are the ONLY earrings I have worn since. I have owned about 3-4 pair of these and the reason for so many over the past years is a couple have either been lost or the post has broken off from being bent. I'm just getting ready to purchase a couple more backup pairs. They are pricey but for me worth it. PLEASE UG continue to carry this awesome product! And yes, I always get positive reactions to them wherever I go.

                      I purchased these earrings a long time ago - they are my absolute favorite earrings that I wear almost everyday. Unfortunately I have a habit of losing them. I am so happy that this site continues to carry them so I can easily replace them. I've seen cheaper pairs but they don't look as nice. I think this is the 3rd or 4th time I've purchased these earrings & I'll continue to purchase them if I should lose another.

                      I noticed I lost an earring while on vacation & ordered a new pair that day. By the time I got home a couple days later, the earrings were waiting for me!
