Giles has a lovely collection of spoons that would make a lovely prop for a "fairy wedding" or fantasy setting, but also makes necklaces and pendants that you can wear. The tree of life, ivy, leaves, flowers, dragons, and all sorts of animals and creatures from the forest. There is something in his work that roots with the planet, something rustic but gentle and warm like the hearth of a home. Something  organic and wild and almost pagan calling in each piece too. They are not cheap, but neither cheaply or quickly made, no lasercut piece, but delicately carved from sketch to finished piece you can appreciate the true craftmanship of this British talent.

You can also interact following his work in instagram, where sometimes he makes some giveaways :) and you can see the creation and making of process of some of the pieces. You can also join his  youtube channel and see how he carve one of the pieces.
