“The recently married Hendricks is quietly becoming the guilty pleasure of males—and females—across North America, and the reason why is simple; she’s real.”
We’ve seen her for three seasons as Joan Holloway, the signature pen-necklace wearing, hot office manager for Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency on New York’s Madison Avenue. She’s not only hot on the show but off, with people buzzing about her, and her figure, all over the media.
Mad Men is set in the 1960s, peak of the fun retro era—the era of pop art, false lashes, Jackie Kennedy, pastel colors and the death of Marilyn Monroe, whom Joan compares herself to. Like the other characters, Joan Holloway has a fashion-perfect 1960s wardrobe and the show’s costume designer consistently nails it!
I always know when Mad Men season is approaching because that’s when our 1960s inspired pen necklace sells like crazy! If you recall, back in 2008, we had our very own Joan Holloway contest on who could imitate the character best donning our pen necklace, and the winner from New York got it down pretty well.

We’re excited for the new season! And be on the lookout for our compilation of Joan Holloway-inspired jewelry coming soon!
Mad Men Season 4 premiers on Sunday, July 25, 10/9c.
