It will be targeted at people who suffer from anxiety, OCD and other memory or stress related illnesses. Maeve also hopes this product will prove useful to the general public. Maeve has developed a functional bespoke wood and glass pendent and necklace with the help of Gerry Ruane (Burren Jewellery) using a human-centred design approach.
