Leaf Earrings in sterling silver and enamel / surface treatment by South Australian artist Ida Maglai.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Ida Maglai was born and raised in Hungary, where she studied in a specialist economics high school. Following this she completed a Diploma of Teaching and Community Arts. While teaching, she was involved with a felt-making group and also learnt to make horse-hair jewellery. These pieces were accredited by the Hungarian Union of Craft’s Jury.
Arriving in Australia as a refugee in 1987 with her baby boy and husband, she learnt English and studied visual art, majoring in Jewellery, at the North-Adelaide School of Art. In 1995 she graduated and since then has been working as a self-employed studio jeweller.
Ida considers jewellery as visual poetry that is the reflection of the maker and the wearer. Her pieces are inspired by the world surrounding, by other art forms and artworks, and her love and concern for nature. They are also influenced by her experiences and Hungarian heritage.
