WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

I’m not one to wear a lot of jewelry — though I am crazy about cuff links, watches, and I do wear the occasional bracelet — but I have to say when I saw my very handsome friend Mark Armstrong Peddigrew sporting one of his fantastic necklaces, I was smitten and had to have one. I asked him to create something for me that would celebrate the Anglo/Scottish side of my heritage, and, as you can see, he did a brilliant job! My particular piece is a combination of the most wonderful charms – a tartan pen knife, bag pipes, agate, and a little pig to symbolize the fact that we can all be a little “piggy” now and then.

The name Cartography reflects Mark’s travels collecting components in far off lands for these unique pieces – pieces that in his words “.. have all made their own journey, gathered their own history, which continues on as they cross paths with their new adventurist.”

Because of the very special nature of these necklaces quantities are quite limited, so do take a look and perhaps acquire one of these works of art to accompany you on your own journey!

Some more of Mark Armstrong Peddigrew's pieces.


  1. It’s like an update on a charm bracelet– but I love the way Mark arranges the pieces: they seem to stack well on the chain.

  2. Very nice… always love the tartan knife

    The photograph is absolutely amazing. I like jewelry on men, it reminds me of when I was in Italy, and saw how some of the more interesting young men adorned themselves, and I do think that jewelry is a great way for a creative person to express their taste. Thanks for sharing!
