ABOUT PORTER GULCH
Porter Gulch is named after the idyllic street I grew up on in Santa Cruz, California.
Years later while working in Manhattan, I was drawn to an evening jewelry making class at the the School of Visual Arts. It was there that I learned how to turn a sheet of metal into a refined piece of jewelry. A few more classes led to an intensive course at Kristin Hanson’s Fine Jewelry School in TriBeCa, and to an Etsy shop and my first sales from strangers. Eventually, on a cold Monday morning in February, in a scene straight out of a movie script, I quit my corporate job to pursue jewelry design full time.
