Yesterday’s mild multi-state quake brings to mind "shake" jewelry, comprising lots of little loose stones under glass. Set in a graduated sterling necklace, 26.5 cts. of industrial-grade diamond dust safely and securely shimmer under clear quartz in this massive piece from LeeAnn Herreid of Individual Icons. The Rhode Island–based designer made it for an exhibit at the Museum of Art at the Rhode Island School of Design, and has sold about six of them nationwide.
Herreid is so engrossed in her work in the Ocean state that when I called her yesterday about this necklace and informed her that we had just experienced an earthquake she replied, “Did we? I didn’t feel it.” For sure, wearers of this $2,800 statement rivière will experience a unique thrill of her own.
