The Salvaged Journey

As a girl, Marie Young always had her hands full. Sometimes it was clay, sometimes paper, beads, or wire. So it was only natural that her love of creativity would evolve into a business. It took almost 3 decades before the girl who dug clay from her yard and made paper snowflakes in her desk during class would find the perfect balance between job and passion. The idea for The Salvaged Edge came around 2008 like a tiny speck of dawn light that grew into a sunrise. Working part time at a bead store and raising a daughter at home, she discovered a love for metal. The malleability, durability, and possibility were too much to ignore and by the time her friend Eunice introduced her to Lu Heimansohn's Salvage Yard and the endless supply of salvaged copper there, she was hooked. Over the next decade her passion would grow into the business it is today.

Most days now, you can find Marie settled at her antique watchmakers bench tapping out a steady rhythm on her anvil. Or you might find her at a show or festival around the middle Tennessee area. If you really want to make her eyes sparkle, dare her to try to make something she hasn't made before. She always has her hammer ready for something new.

    Owner, Maker, Designer

    I've always been creative and when my daughter was born I needed an outlet while I stayed home to take care of her. I am blessed to be able to do something I love.

    Cujo was rescued on May 25, 2018 and likes to whistle the Andy Griffith theme song and imitate alarm clocks. He works for millet. He is not a very great organizer because he gets distracted by shiny things.

Welcome to The Salvaged Edge!

There is a whole line of fun pieces here to suit your wants and needs.

I make all of my artisan items from salvaged electrical grade copper, aluminum, and 100% post consumer recycled sterling silver. All of my items are untreated unless otherwise noted. I use both new and vintage beads, found objects and recycled jewelry parts in my designs. I love to use as much recycled and repurposed materials as can, hence, my shop name, The Salvaged Edge. I am constantly experimenting with "new" used materials so keep a look out for new and interesting twists!

I work out of my home in historical Dover, Tennessee, a small, picturesque town with one stop light and lots of Southern charm, y'all!

Thanks!

Marie
