Wearable Art : Jewelry, Crochet, & Apparel
Maria Weaver is always creating in waves, small and large. She loved the feeling of funky handmade natural jewelry, hence the name 'Naturalfeelings' business was born in 1992. She wanted to be unique in her style with good quality, 70's funk and Afrocentric designs combined. Urban Chic and Funky customers came for her wearable art, mostly in the warmer months.
After leaving corporate America in 2000, she added a (cooler months) Winter component to her business. She visited a childhood gift from her mother, crocheting, and it went well for over a decade. By 2011, with customer encouragement and the waves of doing a handmade business, she added Teaching-Artist. Her (teaching) background in crochet and jewelry-making, moved her to teach Visual Arts in Baltimore and surrounding areas.
