8Ball

8Ball - Click For Enlargement8Ball is our Main Man- er...greyhound. Not only because he's so highly admired, but because his shape accommodates so many different uses. You'll see all three sizes of 8Ball often on our website, and an even tinier version as well - as in earring studs on this page.

The first, and original size is available as a charm, with a spring ring for affixing to your bracelet, and as the one shown here, with a fixed bail set perpendicularly to slide on a chain. He measures .75" from side to side.

Ab Fab I

Ab Fab I - Click For EnlargementRemember that show AB Fab? Absolutely Fabulous? It seems a greyt name for the new Absolute pendants from the 2017 Tucson Gem Show, starting with THIS one: lapis and opal with Original sized 8Ball.

Price: $225.00

Abalone at its best!

Abalone at its best! - Click For EnlargementMarta Howel Designs cover everyone's taste- from the very simple, to more unique, to really dressed up! Very large to very small- these two give you a choice between our original sized 8Ball with blue topaz accent and our Large sized 8Bal with amethyst accentl- both gorgeous, one just bigger in every way.

Amber Duo

Amber Duo - Click For EnlargementOf deep amber and butterscotch amber colors, you won't be able to see it in the picture, I don't think, but Tiny 8Ball rests inn a perfectly sized little depression in the upper stone. Lovely!

Price: $125.00

Quantity:

Amber Inlay

Amber Inlay - Click For EnlargementThe first of three I purchased: complicated design in a simple setting, this really appealed to me. Hope you feel similarly!

Price: $150.00

Quantity:

Ancient Glitter

Ancient Glitter - Click For EnlargementThis circle of quartz druzy has been inlaid into a dark stone of fossilized material in browns and blacks- just stunning! Some parts of the druzy circle are totally open while others are sufficiently translucent that the blue background shows through.

Adorned with our Large Sized Dave, this 2.25" pendant is a statement maker!

Price: $250.00

Quantity:

Ball o' Bling!

Ball o' Bling! - Click For EnlargementThat's our original sized 8Ball mounted upon oval of wood in a frame of oxidized sterling and patterned with black spinel. It's weightier than it looks!

The spinel looks better than it photographs, too- like marcasite.

I really admire this clever designer!

Price: $100.00

Betty Pendant

Betty Pendant - Click For EnlargementCopyrighted by Silk Road Collars, Sue Ross has graciously allowed Betty to join the NCGS Designer Dog Family.

You'll see Betty among all our Unusual Jewels, mounted upon finished pieces but the only place you can buy the original Betty pendant is from Silk Road Collars!

Boulder Opal

Boulder Opal - Click For EnlargementEven though the light blue inclusions are not the neon-shimmery color of many opals, this is still Boulder Opal and I like the natural/uneven finish on Mike's background.

I took the photo from an angle so you can see that this is a thick pendant- nearly 1/4"! Just lovely!

Price: $140.00

Quantity:

Christine Jones

Christine Jones - Click For EnlargementChristine Jones is a local Southern California artist whose skill imbedding pieces of natural wood in acrylic fascinating! This is all that remains from our sizable original purchase, but more are forthcoming in the near future.

Quantity:

Chrysophase

Chrysophase - Click For EnlargementAnd what a hunk of chrysoprase this is, too! Seeing this pendant straight on shows that it is beautiful (so is Betty!) but wouldn't show you that this pendant is 3/8" thick! It's heavy with sterling and a beautiful color.

Price: $175.00

Quantity:

CJ Set

CJ Set - Click For EnlargementThis clever pendant of wood and acrylic by Christine Jones has a matching set of earrings- sold as a set only. The chain measures 20".


Price: $115.00

Quantity:

Crazy Lace

Crazy Lace - Click For EnlargementWho wouldn't want to wear a stone called "Crazy Lace"? Especially with its so-very-intricate patterns AND constructed by Absolute with matching bail?

And most especially with a gorgeous greyhound like Mikie as the feature?

Price: $175.00

Quantity:

Delicate Sterling Mike

Delicate Sterling Mike - Click For EnlargementI suppose you could say that Mike is THE classic for Northcoast Greyhounds. He's our earliest design still in circulation, and remains our best selling pendant.


Price: $50.00

Dendrite

Dendrite - Click For EnlargementDendrite with aquamarine accent featuring Tiny 8Ball

Diamonds....

Diamonds.... - Click For EnlargementAnother of the cool wooden pendants- this time with "diamonds" and our original sized 8Ball.

Price: $85.00

Druzy Ring

Druzy Ring - Click For EnlargementBy Marta Howell- small, at only one inch across, this summery adjustable ring features Grace.

Price: $140.00

Quantity:

Fleur de Lis Dave

Fleur de Lis Dave - Click For EnlargementA new addition. Small and feminine, Davie just fits across the top of this Fleur de Lis with its little sterling dangle at the bottom.


Price: $65.00

Quantity:

Flower Girl

Flower Girl - Click For EnlargementWhat can we say?

This gracefully long-necked beauty speaks for herself. One of Northcoast Greyhounds original creations, it's obvious that Flower Girl has moved from a sandy racetrack to her own personal field of blossoms.

Flower Girl's frame measures .875" in width, 1.125" in height.

Price: $60.00

Fosilart

Fosilart - Click For EnlargementOf course you recognize David Lawrence's Fosilart- these little pendants are the last of my collection from last February- making room for more next February!

Fosilart Long #2

Fosilart Long #2 - Click For EnlargementOne more long and lovely design by Ed Lawrence of Fosilart featuring our tiny 8Ball. 32" not counting the pendant.

Price: $110.00

Labradorite +

Labradorite + - Click For EnlargementThis rectangle of labradorite is particularly blue- particularly shimmery- thus the perfect background for Mike!

Price: $145.00

Quantity:

Labradorite Set

Labradorite Set - Click For EnlargementWell, they can be a set, or they can be purchased separately- check the 15% discounted pricing if purchased together.

In either case, Brynn stands out against the shimmery deep blue-green labradorite.

Larimar Mike

Larimar Mike - Click For EnlargementIt's not easy to find Larimar at an affordable price, but we did! And we like this piece especially because it looks as though Mike has his head in the clouds!

Price: $125.00

Quantity:

Lavender Agate

Lavender Agate - Click For EnlargementI'm guessing that this unusual agate has been tinted- how else would one get such dramatic color in an agate? The most interesting thing about this stone, though, is the clean line of division between the lavender and the translucent part of the oval.

Very cool!

Price: $110.00

Quantity:

Loveliest Lapis

Loveliest Lapis - Click For Enlargement"Kaiser" brings a showcase full of lapis to the Tucson Gem Show from his German workshop every year, and every year I purchase from him.

The quality of Kaiser's lapis needs no embellishment by a setting and I admire the simplicity of this stark and dark blue background to emphasize our greyhounds.

These perfect lapis chunks are hand cut and drilled with a hole through the top and measure 1/4" in thickness.

MH: Pawa Shell

MH: Pawa Shell - Click For EnlargementActually, Im not certain of the difference between Pawa Shell and Mother of Pearl but Marta Howell calls it Pawa and this is their design. :)

Price: $90.00

Quantity:

Mica In Slate

Mica In Slate - Click For EnlargementA spectacular new stone that I've never before seen. The mica appears to erupt from the natural cavities of the slate and glistens like hidden treasure.

The artist who made them said the trick is to split the stones with a sharp edge rather than cutting smooth surfaces.

The slate is matte black- any lighter surfaces are caused by flash and inept photographer.

Opal Dog Tags

Opal Dog Tags - Click For EnlargementYes, again. I buy them every year in Tucson, popular and well-priced as they are!

I am always happy to encounter this vendor at the Gem Show- they manufacture cultured opal for the jewelry trade, showing row upon row of 2"opal squares in every color imaginable.

They all glimmer more than I can photograph properly. The 23" teeny tiny bead chain is included. One of these is not like the others.

Power Pawa Shells

Power Pawa Shells - Click For EnlargementI often purchase Marta Howell's little plain rectangles of abalone and paws shell- or those with a single semi-precious stone. They're like perfect little picture frames for our smallest Designer Dogs.

MH designs, however, are not all plain and simple- they do glamor, too, as you can see here with these two curvy pendants with hidden bails. They're just more pricy. Gorgeous, though!

Choose:
Quantity:

Quality Neutrals

Quality Neutrals - Click For EnlargementBy Absolute, of course- their jewels are always quality and identifiable by their matching inlaid bails. This is Ocean Jasper but Flower Girl would prefer to think it's woodsy jasper.

Price: $180.00

Quantity:

Roaching Pagoda

Roaching Pagoda - Click For EnlargementNot a very nice name for such an elegant pendant, but I figured greyhound readers would rather read "roaching" than upside-down. :)

This hinged pendant actually has five moving parts - as graceful as it is beautiful.

Price: $155.00

Quantity:

Rutilated Quartz

Rutilated Quartz - Click For EnlargementRutilated Quartz with Rubenite Tourmaline accent

Price: $200.00

Serpentine

Serpentine - Click For EnlargementI know this vendor said it was serpentine, but I cannot recall what the center stone is - it's like sandstone but glittery. The long slender bail makes this pendant feel so graceful!

Price: $95.00

Quantity:

Shades of Amber

Shades of Amber - Click For EnlargementDark fading to light, this is a beautiful and a bit translucent stone featuring our original sized 8Ball.

Price: $135.00

So-delight-fully 8Ball

So-delight-fully 8Ball - Click For EnlargementThis delightfully colorful chunk of sodalite is surrounded by a beaded bezel and centered by our Large Sized 8Ball.

Price: $125.00

Quantity:

Stalactite the Second

Stalactite the Second - Click For EnlargementI would have called this a geode, but what do I know? :)

Sanche & Filia, the creators of this pendant, call it stalactite, so I'm going with that.

Brynn is the feature for this delicate, colorful and affordably priced pendant.

Price: $55.00

Quantity:

Wave Ring, Blue Stone

Wave Ring, Blue Stone - Click For EnlargementMarta Howell, who creates these rings, calls this stone "Swiss London Blue". It is abalone, of course, and adjustable.

Price: $130.00

Quantity:

Wave Ring: Spiny Oyster

Wave Ring: Spiny Oyster - Click For EnlargementSpiny Oyster is always more costly than Marta Howell's paua shell and abalone jewels. The natural color is so beautiful that any added stone would just seem superfluous.

Price: $130.00

Quantity:

Western Mosaic

Western Mosaic - Click For EnlargementUnlike the flat inlays I almost always choose from Absolute, the stones in Mikes little pendant each have their own individual shape and form. Way more interesting than flat, don't you think?

And, as with all of Absolute's quality crafted products, the matching bail is what makes it most special. :)

Price: $160.00

Quantity:

XL 8Ball

XL 8Ball - Click For EnlargementXL 8Ball is a highly noticeable piece, measuring 1.25" across. You'll see him mounted upon some stunningly large jewels, or all by himself as in this picture with both hidden bail for wearing on a chain or pin for wearing as a broach. It was one of our customers who insisted he have both- an excellent idea, too!
