Rhode Island

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.

I got this necklace 5 years ago for my birthday from my father and I literally wear it every day except during very formal occasions. It's about the size of a nickel, which actually makes it a great size to wear all the time. After a few years, it gets hard to polish the silver in the little grove in the silver mount. The glass hasn't scratched in this amount of time, either (and I've had some tough jobs). It's a great conversation piece that always gets compliments from people who haven't seen it before. The only downside on mine, is that you have to shake it to break up the big air into lots of tiny ones in order for it to point north. Otherwise, it points whatever direction you want it to. I have used it for general directions before (for example: lost in the car and need to know if I'm headed East or West and it's Mid-day).

All-in-all, I love this necklace! My friends and family don't buy any necklaces for me now because they know I won't take this one off to wear a new one.

I bought this compass necklace for my mother who always has problems with directions. I was shocked to see how small it was when it arrived. This is such a great idea, but the fact that the compass is about the size of a quarter makes it terribly unpractical.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Compass Necklace:

      It's a small pendant necklace but it was exactly the right size for my petite 18 year old. The length of the chain was perfect for her, not too long and definitely not too short (18").

      Service and delivery comments:

      The neckalce arrived on time and safely packaged. It was gift wrapped. The gift box was a little disappointing as it was a thin cardboard box, but was adequate.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Compass Necklace:

      I bought this product back in 2011! The glass cracked and the compass was out of service. I wrote a mediocre review and Uncommon Goods was on top of it and wanted to make things right. I called them in 2016 to see if their offer was still good. Sure enough it was! I sent them the damaged goods and they replaced it.... FOR FREE!!! Well done Uncommon Goods, you made me become a return customer. Thanks!

              Puchased for college graduation for a young lady who is pondering her future, she was touched by the unspoken meaning. Perfect! Great quality, small enough to tuck unoticed close to the heart, large enough to distinquish from a short distance. Great size.

                Comments about UncommonGoods Compass Necklace:

                I got mine years ago....I would like another,but the price is just way out of MY league..I agree with a previous poster that half the listed price would be more acceptable. I know they are hand crafted- and that it is a real piece of art- and that it contains sterling and metal prices(and everything else) is shooting up....but still....
                I love mine though. I wear it everyday along with my saint Chris pendant(patron saint of travelors) its been all over the world (more than once) with me....beaches in Italy to Sanibel,fl,bathtubs in Ireland to pools in Nashville.,Stonehenge,Hadrian's wall,Loch ness,high in the Swiss Alps,its gone everywhere and always been near my heart...I love it.it took me a while to save for it the first time...but I'm so glad I did...I look at it everyday,sleep,work,eat,ect and I look down and can hold my travel memories. I like the back on mine anyway because its rounded and very smooth.the chain is no problem for me and I like that its a little longer.it doesn't bother me and when I wear my uniforms for work its easily hidden in my shirt so I don't have to worry about it being visible in uniform( and don't have to take it off)
