Damia Frangie is the designer behind Ayounik, having been born and raised in Venezuela, but with a strong influence on her Lebanese side, she combines these two worlds to make her handmade bracelet company.
Each piece comes with an eye charm with the word “AYOUNIK” which means “Your Eyes” in Lebanese. Many cultures believe that the evil eye is a talisman created to protect against the misfortune or injury that a person can receive through the eye of a jealous person. It is believed that if the eye falls off, it has protected you from the evil eye.
Damia started her company back in 2014 in Caracas, Venezuela and immediately she started selling worldwide. In less than 6 months she was selling in 45 stores around our home country. At the same time, she also had stores buying Ayounik pieces around the world.
Made with Czech beads on a wax rope using a beadwork technique in which seeds are woven together using thread to create the illusion of a flat fabric. Colors don’t fade and it can be worn by women, men, and kids alike. All of the pieces are handmade, fun, and colorful. Which is why nobody can settle for just one.
