How We Can Help You

Have you ever had the experience of a necklace breaking as you are wearing it?  Have you lost pieces of your necklace under furniture or had your pet swallow the beads?  Has your broken piece of jewelry sat inside your drawer never to be worn or enjoyed again?  These are actual situations experienced by my customers.

I can restring your jewelry so you can enjoy your piece once again.  I use 100 percent silk cord with hand-knotting technique for durability, safety and security.  Hand-knotting prevents the loss of beads when the cord breaks, because each bead is held in place by a  knot.  You will be able to enjoy your jewelry again for many years to come.  Also, ask about pearl jewelry restringing and design. 

The Beads 

A large variety of semi-precious beads are used, such as vintage Czech crystal, Swarovski crystal, quartz, freshwater pearl, malachite, lapis lazuli, amazonite, amethyst, jade, jasper, hematite, coral, Russian charoite, and amber. Care is taken to combine beads into a unique and one-of-a-kind jewelry design that is destined to become an heirloom to be passed down from generation to generation.



Nancy Geng Vassilakis began making and selling jewelry on eastern Long Island in 1972. Her first collection was comprised of jewelry made from pebbles, rocks, and seashells gathered from the beaches of Montauk Point.

Nancy graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree in Interior Design. Upon graduation in 1986 and until 1994, Nancy worked as an architectural designer at the firms of Edward Larrabee Barnes and Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer in New York City.

In 1987, Nancy started her own company, N.G. Atelier Designs, offering interior and graphic design services to individuals and small companies. In 2009, Nancy opened Edessa Studio and returned to her first love -- the stringing and fashioning of beads into wearable works of art.

Charitable Work

Nancy is an active member of her local parish's Mask Ministry, a group of parishioners who donate their time and talents to making face masks during the Covid-19 pandemic. Since the Mask Ministry's inception in March 2020, Nancy and the group have made over 600 masks for the healthcare community, first responders, and private citizens all over the country. There is no charge for the masks. The only payment accepted is a voluntary, pay-what-you-can-afford donation to Holy Trinity Orthodox Church of East Meadow.
