My Story

Laughing Lotus Boutique is the love child of Donna McRae, designer, Reiki master, yoga teacher, crystal intuitive, mother and former retail executive. Donna adores the creative process and growing things, and that passion now includes growing her company from the seed of an idea. Laughing Lotus Boutique was born in 2018, when Donna closed her beloved yoga studio store in Wellesley, Massachusetts to re-explore her passion for jewelry making. 
Donna began her journey as freshman in college, with courses in metal-smithing.  A move to NYC upon graduation lead to a fulfilling career on 7th Avenue where Donna, as a buyer and creative director, created product for many major stores. Family brought her back to her roots in Massachusetts where she was Vice President at Sara Campbell until her second child Lily was born. During a 7 year hiatus from work, Donna re-discovered lost parts of herself with the practice of yoga and meditation. She became a certified yoga teacher and Reiki Master. Now less of a business woman, and more of an artist and yogi, Donna is passionate about bringing the Shakti or energy of spiritual practices to life in everything she does- especially creating jewelry.
