Urban Forest Jewelry by our good friend Dave Quiles :)

Urban Forest Jewelry, a new brand from Dave Quiles of Outta My Mind Creations, combines technology with imagination and nature to create delightful works of graphic art that one can exhibit while wearing. The power of electromagnetic waves and human creativity are harnessed (insert maniacal laugh here) to carve visually inspiring pieces from wood primarily, but also other materials. Each wood piece is carefully produced to preserve the natural, organic features of exotic hardwoods along with an original design. These are not merely statement jewelry pieces, but rather scenic and narrative jewelry— pieces that tell a story and convey the spirit of the characters and their settings, while still giving a sense of style, humor, and individuality for the wearer. They express things like: trees are happy, myths are real, and pterodactyls make great pets!

Its website,, was launched on July 7th from Taipei, Taiwan during a touring art exhibition, the Art Assault custom guitar show that Dave co-created with Mai Hiro and Gibson Guitars. It was abroad in which the brand was met with a widespread welcome, and pieces were sold to eager aficionados looking for something unique to express their individuality. The launch pieces are just the start, as new necklace scenes and other types of jewelry (rings, earrings and more) are in the works that are more intricate in their design and storytelling! Fans from around the world can join and participate in the Urban Forest Jewelry community by visiting and liking or by following the latest on Twitter at #urbanforestnews.

Urban Forest Jewelry asks: “Why merely make a statement when you can tell a story?”
