Item of the Day

In Item of the Day, What's New by Lauren Parker, Accessories Magazine

We’ve seen real croco handbags, faux croco handbags, and all sorts of exotic skins popping up in jewelry. But we’ve never seen croco quite like this before.

Hand-fabricated, sanded and polished in resin, these faux croco cuffs by Triian are in a class by themselves.

Brian Burkhardt and Kenneth Cole debut Burkhardt's unicorn capsule collection

If you watched “Project Accessory” last fall on Lifetime TV, it’s actually not all that surprising. Jewelry designer Brian Burkhardt took home the win, wowing the judges with his sculptural resin designs. He particularly impressed Kenneth Cole, for whom Burkhardt later¬†designed a capsule accessories collection, consisting of a necklace, belt and clutch handbag, all adorned with a hand-made resin unicorn horn.

So we’re excited that he hasn’t left his day job creating unique jewelry under the label Triian, which he owned before his fame on “Project Accessory.” He actually designs the line with his wife Trisha (Triian: TRI for Trisha, IAN for Brian).
