Marie Young's Profile

About

Before I took up the hammer and anvil, I was a beader. I taught beading classes, worked at a bead shop and loved every minute. But I wanted more, I wanted to sculpt jewelry. One day I discovered a 15lb anvil in a hardware store and it was love at first site. I tinkered and played until I had something to give to my family and friends. They kept coming back telling me their friends wanted something and so on until one day it became my business, even though it still feels like a hobby because I love what I do.
I am always learning and looking for new challenges to face and new techniques to master. When I am not out in my garden or playing with my daughter you can find me in my home studio in the historic town of Dover, TN. I live just down the road from our only stoplight. Don't blink or you'll miss it!
