Jewelry, bags and figurines made of beads are not only art and business, but also a form of rehab after a serious injury.
Former intelligence officer Andrii Zhyvushchyi turned to art on a hospital bed after being injured. He decorated bags, made bracelets and necklaces. His first customers were volunteers, and then things really took off.
"Creativity helps to get back on one’s feet in a direct and figurative sense," - says Andrii. Money from his art goes for treatment, which is still continuing. He uses the rest to pay for soldiers in the military hospital.
