Meet Maeve the director and goldsmith behind Hera Saabi jewellery. We caught up with her on a beautiful autumn day at her studio in Parnell, Auckland.

Where do you find self-motivation
I find self-motivation in the desire to create something that wasn't there before. When all other jobs are ticked off and there is space in a day to work on something new. Like everyone, I ocasionaly have mornings where I wake up feeling uninspired and question everything I'm doing. In these times I pretend I'm working for someone else and listen to really loud music all day.

Unwinding method
Going to see live music is like a holiday for me. Being in a crowd of people openly supporting and enjoying musical creativity is really moving and exhilarating.

Song on repeat
I've been listening to Reckless by Australian Crawl ...a lot.

Favourite thing about Ovna
Its hard to pick one thing! I love the romantic, etherial aesthetic and that everything is easy to dance in! Also, I love that Ovna is a kind brand, your ethics make me feel proud when I'm wearing it.

Green tip
Don't support fast fashion. Shop at opp shops, swap with friends and support ethical brands when you can.
