In his own words about his latest jewelry collection called “Cartography”, Mark said: “I guess the story of Cartography owes to my nomad biography and centers around me just being me; the traveling was in my genes and destiny right off my christening name choice, made by parents: Mark Armstrong Peddigrew — initials of which spell MAP. So traveling and cartography (study and creation of maps) felt as something very much related to myself. I never set out to ‘be something’ — I’ve worked as an actor, bartender, waiter, researcher, music supervisor, personal trainer. I have to admit that Cartography is a total accident, a surprise business built on happenstance.”

Through a turbulent series of life changing events, at some point I’ve made a decision to move to New York from London and was introduced to Rufus Wainwright, who took me on tour with him. My second meeting with Mr. Wainwright became a turning point, from which the origins of my Cartography jewelry collection stemmed. All in all, the inspiration for that collection can be traced back to my wanders across various exotic countries, my love of visiting antique-esque and so diverse in their assortment flea markets and my keen eye for collecting most unusual and intriguing visuals together…

  1. Incredible life story…Just as much incredible, as this outstanding jewelry collection!

    1. Oh yeah. No usual man could have designed such creative and exotic set of jewelries – Mark is a special one!
