Rockstella is about the love of stones and imaginative adornment, and is a vessel in which she has forged her appreciation for the natural world and the intrinsic artistry found in natural materials. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Katherine Armer, the force of nature behind Rockstella, radiates beauty and her artistry has brought her around the world. Her inspiration behind the designs is the gems themselves; faceted and rough, precious and semiprecious. She is continually drawn to the tension between the highly refined, well-crafted aspect of beauty and its raw and unhewn edge. This interplay is the heart of what propels her creative vision. Katherine visits Essenza twice a year for trunk shows where we delight in all her work, her presence and the amazing gemstones.
