Hi, my name is Donyell aka DonKatCha.

I have been selling my handmade jewelry online since 2013.


After receiving my PhD in psychology in 2006, I was convinced that I wanted an academic career because that was what all the cool kids did. As I traveled down that path, I began to feel a void in my life. Something had to give and it ended up being me. So I decided to take my own advice and do something about it.

As I journeyed down my path of self-discovery, I circled back to my passion for entrepreneurship. In 2012, I started DonKatCha LLC and the following year opened my first and second Etsy shop. There have been plenty of ups and downs on this journey, but I have enjoyed every step of the way.
