It seems crazy that many of us want to learn how to be present because surely this is something that should come naturally. But living in a world of distractions many of us find our minds are not fully present and in the moment. Often we’re so caught up in thoughts, reliving past events or thinking about the future, that we miss the world around us.
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.”
