about common rite supply | peggy portals
Peggy Portals - born Sara Bautista - is a San Francisco native and current Brooklynite.
Peggy Portals founded Common Rite Supply in 2020. She designs & produces her distinctive fine jewelry collection in NYC's Diamond District.
She has a BA in American Studies from Scripps College & is a GIA Graduate Diamonds alum. Sara has worked professionally in the SF, LA & NYC jewelry districts.
Portals uses her designs for CRS as a medium to explore the paradoxes of duality. CRS jewelry is recognizable by her use of asymmetry, mixed metals, incorporation of mouth, eye & hand motifs and unique utilization of precious materials. Portals is inspired by the tension between the archetypes of the wise & foolish as well as mortality of the wearer & the immortality of the materials. Portals sees jewelry as an age old celebration of human creativity - a common rite.
