Eglė Čėjauskaitė-Gintalė, a middle generation Lithuanian metal artist, has long formed a unique and recognizable style. She has had a well-deserved place on the Lithuanian metal art map for quite a while. For more than ten years, Eglė has worked with silver and mammoth bone, crocheting lacework from silver and moulding poppy heads. After finding her own technique, the author created jewellery and objects based on the combination of silver lace and precious and semi-precious stones for a long time. Silver lace became the trademark of the artist – flexible, adapting to the shape of the body, elegant and ephemeral; one of her first personal exhibitions was not called Hovering Structures for nothing.
