Why Pauline's Jewelry Box?

by mary April 13, 2014

When people see that I've called my jewelry "Pauline's Jewelry Box", they often ask if my name is Pauline, so I thought I'd introduce the real Pauline -- my mother, Pauline Louise Kuphall Nelson.  She was born on February 2, 1910, the youngest of 11 children. 

Here she is with her parents & most of her brothers & sisters. 

And, here she is at her confirmation, with her brother Bill.

She married my father on May 29, 1950 -- Here they are the day they got married. 

And, here they are on their 10th anniversary (that's me in the middle -- I would have been about 7 1/2 at the time).


My mother was a constant source of love & support; she & my dad made me who I am & inspire me still.  I chose to call my jewelry "Pauline's Jewelry Box" to honor her & her memory.

About the author

Pauline's Jewelry Box was founded by Mary Nelson in 2012 in Des Moines, Iowa.  I chose the name Pauline's Jewelry Box because my mother's name was Pauline & I have many fond memories of looking through jewelry box & playing with her jewelry
