This newly famous jewelry master Mark Armstrong Peddigrew is also an avid traveller. Born in the land of most spectacular North America’s landscapes – namely city of St John, Newfoundland in Canada – he nurtured a fancy for everything antique all the way back from his childhood. The one he spent in that old-fashioned, europe-esque looking city.
So no wonder, that after few years of globetrotting and studying in such a multicultural city as London, now Mark calls NYC home. The true melting pot of cultures and styles. And that is a lucky fact for all women across the globe, because exactly that was the city where he began to follow the fashion and started working in jewelry industry.
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.”
