Candice Patton talks about her working on Rizzoli & Isles

ImageYou played Bernard Avery's widow on an episode of Rizzoli & Isles. At the time, did you have any idea how huge a following this show had? Tell us about your time on the set of Rizzoli & Isles.

No, I was unaware of the following that show had. That was a really great experience for me. It was one of the few really meaty guest star roles I've had and it was challenging to do that sort of work on camera. We, as actors, so rarely get to practice scenes with emotionally high stakes under the pressure cooker of a TV set, having to go take after take, with all sort of distractions to contend with around us.

Actress Angie Harmon Launches X Red Earth Jewelry Collection

ImageActress Angie Harmon's new "X Red Earth" is no ordinary jewelry line. Her edgy, socially conscious collection combines chic designs, unconventional materials and artisan craftsmanship that takes skull and bone baubles to a sophisticated new level.

Angie Harmon X Red Earth is a labor of love designed in partnership with Red Earth-an ethical lifestyle brand that creates “ruggedly elegant jewelry with a purpose.” The company employs talented artisans and craftsmen in rural, poverty-ravaged African villages who are enabled to sustain their own families through their hard work and creativity while also creating jobs for others in their community. Red Earth helps these artisans grow their businesses and, in turn, gives even more people in the region hope and opportunity through gainful employment. In this way, Red Earth tells a different story about Africa—one of beauty and entrepreneurship rather than of charity.

As a UNICEF ambassador, Harmon, who is best known for her starring role as Assistant District Attorney Abbie Carmichael on NBC’s Emmy-winning drama Law & Order, “was a natural fit for our first celebrity partnership,” notes Red Earth founder Travis Gravette. “Angie’s sense of design and fashion is totally in sync with our brand and she ‘gets’ that the heart of our company is to use business for good. We are so excited to have released this collection.”

And what an amazing collection it is, with each unique handmade piece exuding substance and character. In further alignment with Red Earth culture, all pieces in the collection are also notably created from recycled materials such as old locks, door knobs and ethically sourced animal bone from Africa. The exquisite pieces are designed in the U.S. but are hand-crafted by the artisans in and around Kenya.

While one might expect Harmon’s A-list celeb status to command a hefty price tag for her wares, the cost of the items in this collection are decidedly affordable–ranging from $195 on the high end to just $30 on the low end–assuring it’s accessible for most style-seekers.

Then there are the designs, themselves. I am admittedly a sucker for edgy statement jewelry and the Angie Harmon X Red Earth line more than fits the bill. The collection features skull rings and bracelets, and black-beaded “refined bone” necklaces and bracelets as well as super sexy reverse choker necklaces, chain link necklaces and bracelets, stud earrings, and a simple yet striking brass ear cuff.

Angie’s “signature piece” also happens to be my personal favorite item in the line and one I wear often: the 17.5” long black-beaded Skull + Bone Necklace ($165). It’s a truly memorable piece that commands attention everywhere I wear it. It’s made by an artisan named Raymond in Kenya who works with his wife and employs four others just outside of Nairobi. I love to wear this piece in combination with the elegant Simple Reverse Choker ($85), which is incredibly versatile for both day and night looks. Together they proffer an unexpected aesthetic that’s a true standout. Pair these with the Skull Cuff ($68) and Bone + Brass Bracelets ($45) along with the Skull Ring ($78) and Ear Cuff ($30) and you’ll have yourself a cohesive, uber-cool look that’s sure to get you noticed time and time again.

Of course, if skulls and bones aren’t your thing, the Angie Harmon X Red Earth collection does feature other pieces that are quite delicate and feminine. Though not a hugely expansive line, there is enough design versatility to suit a wide variety of tastes and styles.

As if all of the above-described do-gooding isn’t enough, cause-conscious accessory aficionados can also take heed that a percentage of all revenue from this collection is donated to UNICEF. My hat’s off to Red Earth—a shining example of how to cultivate hope and opportunity through commerce.

Angie Harmon Has Designs on Giving Back

ImageFans who know Angie Harmon as Jane Rizzoli on TV’s Rizzoli & Isles will see another side of the People’s Choice award-winning actress in April with the debut of her Angie Harmon Red Earth collection of recycled hand-cast brass and aluminum jewelry.

“This is about celebrating the world,” says Harmon, 42, whose designs are made in collaboration with artisans in Kenya who work with Red Earth, an ethical lifestyle accessories brand.

Parade.com asked Harmon to dig a little deeper about her partnership with Red Earth.


I was in Nashville working on a film project and my production partner was showing me around. We walked into this place and there was this gorgeous jewelry hanging on the wall. I thought I had walked into an art gallery. It was Red Earth. There were all these bracelets and necklaces. Each one was unique. Then I found out more. I love what this company is about. They are shining the spotlight on these talented artisans in Africa by partnering with them. It’s about celebrating their talent, craftsmanship and artistry. Plus, a portion of the proceeds from the sales of my line go to Unicef, where I’m an ambassador.


When I see a piece of jewelry or clothing and it’s unique, I’m drawn to it. I want to know, where did you get it? What’s the story behind it? I want to get my hands on it! I like that special one-of-a-kind piece. These pieces are beautiful but they’re not perfect. Each piece is one of a kind. It’s all from recycled materials such as melted down doorknobs and faucets.



I’d like to think that all women love a beautiful piece of jewelry. It’s substantial but really affordable. You can wear this jewelry with a tank top or a button down shirt or when you’re all dressed up. Spring, summer or winter—anytime.


When I was growing up, a skull was a scary thing. But what skulls represent to me now is that we’re all unique, special and incredible. But when you break it all down, we’re all the same. So to me, the skull is just a reminder that it’s all of us, we’re all here together. We’re all trying to get to the finish line together, trying to get there in one piece and be as happy as possible. It’s universal.


Tears fell! It came at such an amazing and needed moment in my life. I felt like it was a wink from God. To win that award, voted by the fans, is one of the biggest thrills in my life. It means the world to me. I want to cement [the award] to the hood of my car.
