Tanglewood Tree Pendant - Red Jasper and Turquoise Gemstones, an original design by Suzanne Coleman 2016

The “Tanglewood Tree” Workshop

At my ongoing  workshops, you can learn to make my signature design, the “Tanglewood Tree” Pendant.


I offer workshops in Borough Green, Kent, United Kingdom.  (Borough Green is located between Maidstone and Sevenoaks on the A25. Easy access from the M20 and M26.)


The workshops are held on the 1st Sunday of each month, from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

How Much?

  • Instruction Fee: £60 per day, per person (the Tanglewood Tree Pendant usually takes 2 days to complete)
  • Materials Fee: Minimum £15 per pendant (depending on the cabochon that you choose)

What will I learn? Will it be right for me?

You will learn:

  • How to make the wire-work tree
  • How to attach it to a gemstone cabochon of your choice
  • How to complete the surrounding beadwork
  • How to attach the fringe and bail
  • You will choose your own colour scheme from my stash of wire, gemstone cabochons, and beads.

You most likely will not be able to complete the entire pendant in one session.  I will give you “homework” to complete at home and/or you can return for a further session.

Even if you are a complete beginner, I can teach you to create this pendant.  More advanced beadworkers will discover new challenges in colour and design.

There is a maximum of 2 students per session, so the instruction is very individual and personal.  The workshops are ongoing, so you can jump in any time or return any time for a further session.
