Maria Weaver is always creating in waves, small and large. The love of Funky and Natural handmade jewelry started her professional business in 1992, hence the name Naturalfeelings. She wanted something in her style of good quality, 70's funk and Afrocentric combined. Urban Chic and Funky customers came, 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, Customer encouragement and the waves of doing a handmade business progressed to Teaching-Artist. Teaching crochet and jewelry-making, quickly turned her to teaching Visual Arts in Baltimore and surrounding areas.
The Custom-made-to-order portion is currently unavailable.
Maria has been creating hand crafted jewelry since 1992. Her style speaks to the "Urban Chic Creative."
Her mediums include precious stones, healing crystals, brass, copper, & recycled leather. She designs earrings, necklaces, rings, body chains, & More.
Maria started crochet at the age of 8-years-old. It was handed down to her by her mother and grandmother.
