Intro: 5 Things You Didn't Know About Regenerous Designs

Alyssa Bird the owner and founder of Regenerous Designs. In her studio showing that she is the person behind the scenes that makes all the accessories by hand.

1. Hi I'm Alyssa Bird, I design and create Regenerous Designs accessories. My childhood hobby of collecting junk, turning it into art and selling it in my front yard has now turned into a real business.

2. I don't make art from junk anymore, but I do use fabric waste from the Los Angeles Fashion District. I save it before it ends up in the dumpsters... One mans trash is my opportunity to create something unique!!

3. My childhood friendship bracelet making skills have come a log way. Each Regenerous Design is thoughtfully crafted with a variety of machine, hand-sewing, and braiding techniques.

4. Before I started a business I never realized how much time is actually spent in research mode. It never ends. I'm constantly on the computer or social media looking into how other brands that I admire are doing things. I don't have a background in business so I have to look to others for advice and inspiration.

5. Being able to do craft shows is my favorite!! It's A LOT of work leading up to it because you never know what people will want to buy, but getting to share a deeper connection with the customers to the products makes it all worth it. I love doing demos and spending quality time bonding over the love that goes into handmade.
