Get The Fever

Whatever the weather, LeeAnn Herreid's Thermoscope Earrings will always look cool. Fully functional, these sterling silver thermoscope earrings, like thermometers, register temperature changes with red (mercury-free) alcohol that rises and falls, but they do not show numerical values. These earrings are waterproof and great fun while hiking, sunbathing or showering.

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 THERMOSCOPE EARRINGS:

        Great earrings. Unique but not gaudy - people usually don't notice exactly what they are at first glance but then are amused. And yes, they work - have tested them out in cold weather and also took them off and used them in my daughter's 2nd grade classroom for as a science experiment on temperature. The only con (and I hesitate to even label it a con) is that I find they bang against the phone, so I have to take them off when talking on the phone. Just as fun as the Phillips screw head earrings that were also given to me by my husband.

          color goes missing

              Comments about THERMOSCOPE EARRINGS:

              Bought these a few years ago. Loved them for about a year or so. Then, the color (red) disappeared, Same thing happened with the level hoops I bought at the same time. No more color within 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.

                I'm a nurse and I like to wear unusual earrings at work, so the thermometers are fitting and different. Also, they appear to be good quality.
                I'll enjoy wearing them at the hospital.

Here's to Summer time!
