About Me

Monark jewelry studio is my working metalsmith space, located in the Comox Valley, BC, Canada.  My name is Marlo Coulson, I am a metalsmith who designs and hand crafts 14k gold fill and fine silver jewelry pieces. My pieces evoke a pairing of sophisticated minimalism and soft femininity.

Following a career in nursing, I turned to the meditative factor jewelry making provided. Taking a Metalsmith certificate program in 2018 allowed me to expand my skills.  Circling back to the craft of jewelry in 2023 has been a dream come true. From my cozy little studio, I look forward to creating jewelry for you!

located in Courtenay, BC Canada

I have been a 'maker & creator for as long as I can remember, dabbling in different art forms, finding my place in jewelry.  The best part of being a jeweler is the lifelong learning involved, the assortment of techniques, I thrive in a state of flux. 

2010-2014  My 'side hustle' business name was 'The Naked Squirrel'  I began selling at markets, screen-printed tanks & assembled jewelry.  

2015-2016   I attended North Island College Metal Arts program and had truly fallen in love with the meditative jewelry making process.

2016-2019 I balance working as an acute care nurse with making jewelry, luckily these days more time is spent in my beloved studio, than on the nursing floor!

2019 I opened a cute little storefront in Downtown Courtenay.

2020  New Storefront closed from the impact of Covid-19.

2023  Ready for jewelry making again, with a focus on jewelry with meaning & intention:)
