Ocean and Nature Inspired Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry
About the Artist
Pauline Walsh Jacobson
I often have wonderful dreams about diving on a beautiful coral reef and seeing fantasy coral gardens, fish and sea creatures from another world. I also have similar dreams about walking along a beach and seeing beautiful seashells like none I have ever seen washing up at my feet. So, I decided to name my ocean-inspired jewelry line Coral Reef Dreams.
I'm a painter, photographer and jewelry
designer - I guess I'm a bit of a jack of all trades. I was getting a little
burned out on painting, so I began designing jewelry a few years ago, and am
loving it! I grew up on the Texas coast, and I love to walk on the beach and
pick up seashells and sea glass, some of which get incorporated into my
jewelry. After College, I moved to Austin, Texas, where I lived until
early 2015 when my husband and I retired and moved to St. John, U.S. Virgin
Islands. In September, 2017, Hurricane Irma devastated St. John, severely
damaging the infrastructure. Our home was fine, but we decided to relocate,
and we now live in Delray Beach, Florida
My husband, Julian "Kent" Jacobson and I love to travel to tropical places
to snorkel and scuba dive. Shortly after becoming certified in scuba, I took
up underwater photography. I have taken thousands of
photographs, both underwater and topside
which provide endless inspiration for my watercolor paintings of marine life. My paintings and photographs
are collected internationally, both in corporate and private collections. If you would like to see my
