About the Presenter

As someone who has such a passion for travel, I visit Ireland to hand select each piece of Artisan jewelry that I offer to classy women who want something unique, that will get them noticed and start any conversation.

As someone with over 20+ years of Corporate Sales, Ronnie found it was time to utilize her sales experience and passion for travel to sell her Irish Artisan jewelry online and at special events. The pleasure she receives when someone tells her how her jewelry has inspired them is unmeasurable.
