Modern, hip accessories with a decidedly tribal twist? Why yes, we don’t mind if we do. A place to scope just that: the Triian collection by Lifetime’s Project Accessory winner Brian Burkhardt and Tricia Brookbank. Featuring hand-cast resin, Swarovski crystals and hand-cut leather, Triian pieces can take up to 10 days to create from start to finish.
Available at Circle & Square, the design duo’s jewelry is made in Burkhardt and Brookbank’s Miami studio and channels their equal emphasis on craft and style. Show-stoppers include the Cobra Head Necklace made of handmade resin snake head and alligator teeth adorned with Lavender crystals, finger baubles such as the luxe bohemian Meteorite ring and the Silver Wing Necklace, whose asymmetrical fringe design features a cascade of hand-cut leather strips in brown, tan and silver.
Add chunky bracelets, edgy chic earrings and pendants, and it’s a collection of independently designed accessories that stands out from the masses, but remains current – both qualities that helped Burkhardt achieve his television victory, which included a chance to design a capsule collection for Kenneth Cole.
To view more of the Triian collection and discover fresh independent style by emerging artists and designers, visit Circle and Square online or in person at the Presidio Heights showroom (344 Presidio Ave., SF.).
